Public Accounts Committee
2017 Annual Report of the Comptroller and Auditor General and Appropriation Accounts
Vote 13 - Office of Public Works
Chapter 6: Lease of Offices at Miesian Plaza
I am going to make one final contribution because we had this previously with An Garda Síochána and Templemore. When issues come to anybody's attention that may be of relevance to the Comptroller and Auditor General's office, it should be informed, whether in draft form or otherwise. The OPW had a responsibility in this regard. If it had concerns and sought a report, it ought to have at least notified the Comptroller and Auditor General's office that an internal report had been requested, that it may take some time to do, and when and if that report is complete, it would be given to the office. Did that ever happen? Was Mr. McCarthy ever informed that an internal review was carried out?
