My Department understands that the report referenced in the Deputy’s question is an internal organisational review conducted on foot of an agreement between City of Dublin Education and Training Board (CDETB) and a staffing union relating to resources, grant management and communications in CDETB and was carried out by the Chartered Institute of Public Finance and Accountancy.

As the Deputy is aware CDETB is a statutory body recognised under the Education and Training Board Act 2013 and reports relating to internal matters in the ETB are entirely a matter for the management of that ETB.

In light of the Deputy’s question officials from my Department have been in contact with CDETB regarding progress on the report.

CDETB has advised that several of the recommendations in the report have already been completed and others have been commenced.  They further advised that the Senior Management Team in CDETB has recently conducted an exercise of reviewing all the relevant/applicable recommendations. An oversight group, reporting to the Chief Executive, is being established to progress the remaining relevant recommendations.
