This statement by the NAO (National Audit Office, 'Valtiontalouden tarkastusvirasto' in Finnish) does not give high credits to the impact of public-led information technology projects. It states that
- the concrete impacts on local geographic levels have been mild, compared to
the substantial financial bets placed in these projects
- the goals set in these IT projects have not been met satisfactorily

The goals set in 2003 by the Council of state were among others:
* to increase the capability of citizens of Finland in using information technology
* to ensure that citizens would have unhindered access to fast network connections
