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
My next questions are for the Department of Public Expenditure and Reform and the Department of Education and Skills. It has been said that a new set of procedures will have to be followed. What will happen if they are not followed? Will non-compliance affect funding? Will it affect students? Will members of staff hold on to their positions even though they have not done their job adequately? Will it entail putting in the appropriate extra accountancy staff or whatever?
