2016 Annual report Volume I No. 33 – Federal Employment Agency has to provide justifications for its radio service

The Federal Employment Agency’s radio service provides radio broadcasts free of charge even though it has so far not provided justifications for this service.
Nov 15, 2016

The Federal Employment Agency’s radio service prepares radio broadcasts ready for transmission and provides them free of charge on a website. According to the Agency, about 250 users are registered. 55 per cent of these users are Agency staff.

It justified setting up this service on the ground that its issues have hardly been covered by the programme of the radio broadcasters. However, it has never identified the broadcasting quotas of the Agency’s issues.

We doubt that there is a need for this service and recommend that the Agency only continue operating its radio service if it can provide justifications for its need and the efficiency of the approach taken.
