The total recurrent budget allocation for 2017 for the higher education institutions under the designation of the Higher Education Authority (HEA), which includes all of the Universities and Institutes of Technology, is €978.533 million.

My Department allocates the recurrent funding to the HEA for direct disbursement to the HEA designated higher education institutions. The HEA allocates this funding to the institutions and the internal disbursement of funding is then a matter for the individual institution. The institutions, as autonomous bodies, are responsible for their own day to day affairs, including the allocation of all of its income (both public and private).
