Public Accounts Committee
2011 Annual Report of the Comptroller and Auditor General and Appropriation Accounts
Vote 10 - Office of Public Works
Ms Clare McGrath:
Some of these savings are on other Votes so we would not be reflecting them in our Vote, if I understand the question. This is so as not to have double counting. We must be careful. The savings methodologies will have to take account of that because the sum of it is because of cost avoidance by accounting officers in deciding not to purchase, but we have to be careful not to double-count.
