The Ministry of Education had no clear goals or methods for evaluation cash given to charities working with children and young people between 2014 and 2016.
That’s one of the conclusions of the state spending watchdog, the Supreme Audit Office, in a report published on Monday.The watchdog investigated 67 projects supported over the period to the tune of 509 million crowns.
It found the ministry had no overall target for what it was doing. In addition, it also acted in a non-transparent way and broke its own support guidelines when allocating money.
The ministry said it had acted transparently and added that new general criteria had been put in place in 2015.
