Public Accounts Committee

Higher Education Authority: Financial Statements 2014

10:00 am

Mr. Tom Boland:

Foundations or trusts are extraordinarily important, as I think the Deputy will appreciate, in order to raise private funding for the institutions. We have had an ongoing issue with the consolidation of the foundations into the accounts of the universities so there is full transparency. This matter is now at an end because we have directed the universities that all foundations must be consolidated into the accounts. One university was already doing this in any case.
