Appropriation directions for activities in the Ministry of Education and Research’s areas of responsibility
Once the Riksdag has adopted the central government budget, the Government issues appropriation directions for all appropriations. The appropriation directions set out the agencies’ financial conditions and priorities for the direction of activities for the budget year.
The central government budget comprises some one hundred ‘appropriations’ that describe how much money can be used for a certain activity. The appropriations are divided into 27 expenditure areas.
