Public Accounts Committee

Financial Statements of the Higher Education Authority 2013
General Report No. 85 of the Comptroller and Auditor General: Accountability and Governance on the National College of Art and Design

10:00 am

Mr. Seamus McCarthy:

Yes. As I mentioned to Deputy O'Donovan earlier, we had not produced another report of this kind and we have not felt the need to do so. I would say that some of the issues we raised with the NCAD occur in other colleges, particularly the non-use of competitive procurement in certain cases. Accounting errors also occur. We work with colleges to correct them and to move to present properly a true and fair view of the financial situation. There may be other governance circumstances in other colleges but for them all to come together is an unusual situation.
