Joint Oireachtas Committee on Housing, Planning and Local Government
Local Government Performance Indicators and Public Spending Code: National Oversight and Audit Commission
I suggest that NOAC would be familiar with pre-legislative scrutiny and we have a red, amber and green light mechanism. I suggest that in future reports, NOAC might consider an alarm system for indicators that are way above norms or for unusual sets of circumstances. NOAC might also consider our red, amber and green light system. It is a traffic light warning system and it is a good system that works for many indicators and reports. I am not asking Mr. McCarthy to respond to that; other than asking that NOAC might consider it.
