Our mandate and work

The Swedish Government and the Riksdag determine the mandate and objectives of the Debt Office and draw up frameworks for how we should run our operation. We are also governed by acts, ordinances and guidelines.

Internally, we enhance our control by drawing up our own policies and guidelines for risks and ethics. Our operation is based on an annual operational plan and rules of procedure that govern our organisation.


The Debt Office is to be characterised by professionalism, transparency and security. This applies across the entire operation, which among other things affects our agreements, procurement processes, the work environment and how we manage our relations with customers and other stakeholders.

Published and internal material

We publish policies for risk management, ethics and security, but not our internal guidelines or operational plans. These policies are only available in Swedish.
