Norwegian to English translations [PRO]
Government / Politics
Norwegian term or phrase: forvaltningsprosjekt
In the text in question, this term is used to refer to archaeological excavations in connection with new road-building projects.
Other instances:
"forvaltningsinitiert forvaltningsprosjekt", og how one could convert a "forvaltningsprosject" into a "forskningsprosjekt " in order to utilise the results as best as possble.

I would like to use "public administration project" but cannot find enough support for this from searches I've done using this term together with the Norwegian one. Has anyone come across this term in the past?

Som du selv sier, men jeg ville kanskje ha stått over "offentlig" men du kjenner kanskje teksten best selv og vet hva som passer.

civil service project

Can you translate 'forvaltning' as administration sometimes and 'civil service' in other places where that is appropriate.

Certainly in Danish, forvaltning some times means administration and other times refers to the civil service.

e.g. forvaltningsinitiert forvaltningsprosjekt = civil service initiated administration project

Just a suggestion.
