Lack of equal treatment in compulsory land acquisition by the central government
Despite previous criticism of shortcomings, differences persist in government agencies’ treatment of property owners who are forced to give up or concede use of their land. Above all, it concerns the disparities in how compensation is determined, according to the Swedish National Audit Office’s audit.
Major risk of incorrect compensation for high sick pay costs
The design of the system for compensating employers for high sick pay costs presents a major risk of incorrect payments. The Swedish National Audit Office recommends more controls and better opportunities to share information between agencies. In addition, the obligation of employers to provide information should be strengthened, and combined with financial penalties.
Insufficient central government measures for an efficient electricity system
The Government and government agencies have not implemented measures efficiently enough for the electricity system to evolve in line with the overall energy policy objective. Tardy action, short-termism and poor impact assessments are the main shortcomings, according to the Swedish National Audit Office’s audit.
Attempts to reduce waiting times in health care have been inefficient
The Government has made several efforts to reduce waiting times in health care. The Swedish National Audit Office’s audit shows that these efforts have had little impact and that waiting times remain long.
