The Health Vote is in regular contact with the Department of Health regarding expenditure management. Each month, the drawdown of funds from the Exchequer is reported on against published expenditure profiles in the Fiscal Monitor, published by the Department of Finance.

In addition, the HSE monthly Management Data Reports which include the information outlined above are shared with officials in my Department, albeit with some time lag. To date in 2019, officials from my Department have received reports pertaining to January - April. All of these reports are publicly available on the HSE website.
