The Swedish space programme is mostly carried out through international cooperation. Out of a yearly budget of approximately 900 Mkr (100 M€), about 70% is used to support ESA programmes of importance to Sweden. The programme has included a sequence of satellite missions, both national ones and in cooperation with other nations.
In February 2013, a government audit was released by the Swedish National Audit Office which concluded that "Swedish space investment is distributed among multiple organizations that operate as stovepipes with no real communication between them and no common ambition."
While approximately 1 billion Swedish krona (US$158 million) is spent each year on Swedish space initiatives, the audit report calls for additional "government oversight of the European Space Agency (ESA) and a review of the Swedish Space Corporation's structure and mission."
