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

Professor Declan McGonagle:

In terms of the specific areas that were signed off, we had rolled into our general board process that the audit committee would report to our board. The financial issues were so dominant that they absorbed board discussions as well. Obviously the way we were doing the signing off on the governance statement did not meet the requirement for the review, but we felt we were on top with the procedures we had in place for monthly accounts and budgetary comparisons.
