The bodies would appear before Committees of the Oireachtas annually or as requested by the Committee normally represented by the chief executive and/or his or her team.

In accordance with the Department of Public Expenditure and Reform's Guidelines on Appointments to State Boards, all persons being proposed for appointment as a chairperson of a State body are required to make themselves available to the appropriate Oireachtas Committee to discuss the approach which they will take to their role as chairperson and their views about the future contribution of the body or Board in question.
