Auditors: Ministry failing to evaluate benefits of migration policy spending

The Ministry of the Interior is not monitoring the benefits of its programmes supporting Czech national migration policy, the Supreme Audit Office said in a report released Monday.

The targets set by the ministry are vague and no indicators are being used to determine whether they are cost-effective, the auditors said.

They also identified shortcomings in projects that they said should have been discovered by the ministry at the time they were commissioned.

Ministry of Interior officials said that they were constantly working on a system to monitor the efficacy of investments in migration policy.
