Governance and results
Our activities are governed by ordinances and appropriation directions. Here you can read more about how our assignment is governed and how our work is monitored, however most of the documents are in Swedish.
Each year we submit an annual report to the Government. The annual report is decided on by the board of directors and describes our programmes and expenses, as well as the results achieved.
We work on behalf of the Riksdag and the Government. The fundamental features are described in acts and ordinances. The most important acts and ordinances for our work are the Ordinance on Labour Market Policy, the Ordinance with Instructions for Arbetsförmedlingen and the Government Agencies Ordinance.
You can read more about how government agencies are governed at the Government Offices of Sweden website.
The Government gives us assignments both continually throughout the year and via its annual appropriation directions. Appropriation directions are the decisions issued by the Government each budget year in order to regulate the activities of a government agency.
See the progress report requirements expressed in the respective appropriation directions.
Based on the appropriation directions, the board of directors adopts an action plan for the coming year for the entire government agency.
Arbetsförmedlingen is funded by appropriations from the Riksdag and the Government. Each year we submit budget documentation to the Government. The documentation reflects our ambition for how our activities should be funded over the coming three years and contains proposals concerning regulatory changes and simplifications.
Arbetsförmedlingen is in the process of modernizing its sustainability reporting, and therefore the latest report is from 2021
Environmental management reports
Our code of statutes contains current regulations and general guidelines. The code also includes applicable regulations and general guidelines from the former Arbetsmarknadsstyrelsen, the activities of which were transferred to Arbetsförmedlingen on 1 January 2008.
At the beginning of each year we publish an annual register of the regulations and general guidelines we have issued over the past year.
