The working group’s main purpose is to meet, liaise and consult on matters affecting services to Committees and on matters of common interest to Chairmen. It is empowered to make recommendations on the apportionment of money for consultancy and travel and on the allocation of accommodation for Committee meetings.

Most of the committee's meetings are held in private. However, the terms of reference of the committee state that the Taoiseach shall appear before the committee twice a year, spring and autumn, to discuss matters of public policy.
