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
I am going to give Mr. Boland an example. If the Revenue Commissioners turn up at the door of a man or a woman who is conducting a business and he or she is told to get his or her affairs in order and that Revenue is owed a sum of €50,000, they do not wait. The State does not treat its citizens like that. The HEA gave leeway to NCAD to continue to go as it went and Mr. Boland did nothing about it. He did not even tell the Department of Education and Skills until 2013.
