Galway-Mayo Institute of Technology: Financial Statements 2013
I know that but between Deloitte, Mazars and the Comptroller and Auditor General someone is falling down and there are piles of information there, if I understand audits. That is my view on it. It is seriously remiss of the Department and the HEA if they do not go back over Deloitte's working papers and have a central base to compare figures. The figures I have given the witnesses today are extraordinary. The bad debts written off amount to €287,000, there is a loss of €33,000 on the catering company and issues arise, like the one we are talking about. All we get from all the witnesses is words like, "Yeah, it happened, but listen, we've locked the gates firmly now". Great.
Are there any other questions?
