Spending watchdog criticizes roll out of single payments site

11-07-2016

The country’s spending watchdog, the Supreme Audit Office, has castigated moves by three government bodies to try and create a single payment site for all tax, customs, social security and health transactions. In a report published Monday, it said that around 3.5 billion crowns was spent, mostly on non-related activities which did not advance the project at all. The project aimed at simplifying payments and collection was approved by the government in 2008. It was originally supposed to be completed by 2014.
