In a new report, the Office of the Auditor General say that economic control is insufficient in the Norwegian Armed Forces. The auditors also say that there is a lack of coherence between the personnel managed by the Defence and the tasks in need to executed.

Norway has ordered five new frigates, all of which are to be in operation from year 2010. The first two of the vessels, the “Fridtjof Nansen” and the “Roald Amundsen” were handed over to the Navy this and last year.
