Public Accounts Committee

2017 Annual Report of the Comptroller and Auditor General and Appropriation Accounts
Vote 8 - Office of the Comptroller and Auditor General

9:00 am

Ms Colette Drinan:

As part of the annual Estimates process, we engage with the Department of Public Expenditure and Reform. Where we identify the need for additional resources, we have the conversation with it. It has been very constructive. As the Deputy will see, our complement has increased by ten between 2017 and 2018. One of the key reasons for that was that we looked for additional resources to dedicate to performance reporting.
