Statskontoret (The Swedish Agency for Public Management) is the Government’s organisation for analyses and evaluations of state and state-funded activities.
We provide the Government and Ministries with relevant, concrete and useful studies in all areas with the aim of making the public sector more efficient.
With our expertise in public administration we support the Government with matters relating to organisation, governance and development of the public sector. In our publication series About the public sector (Om offentlig sektor) we reflect and analyse the development and challenges of public administration
Another of our assignments is to monitor the local government financial equalisation. We analyse and give proposals to improve this system with the aim of making it more accurate and simplified.
We also have the assignment to contribute to and coordinate the state authorities’ work towards a sound administrative culture. A sound administrative culture deals with the professional ethical foundations that must characterise the work of all state employees.
The summaries of our publications from 2013 onwards are translated into English.
