Circulars are written statements that provide information and guidelines to departments and public bodies on laws and procedures. Civil Service circulars are in the main published by the Department of Public Expenditure and Reform and mainly provide guidance and information covering Civil Service finance and human resources policy. My Department's corporate functions are guided by all relevant Civil Service circulars.
