Written answers (Question to Business)

As the Deputy will be aware, in addition to their statutory responsibilities,  both my Department and those bodies under its aegis are subject to normal Civil and Public Service Governance practices and procedures across all areas of operations including  Corporate Governance, Finance,  Human Resources, Procurement etc.

As such it is standard practice that directives, circulars, advice or requirements issued by the Department of Public Expenditure and Reform, or other Government Departments or Agencies in relation to matters under their remit, are brought to the attention of Department  staff and the management of bodies under the remit of the  Department.
