Report on the Accounts of the Public Services 2001

The Comptroller and Auditor General has published his Report to Dáil Eireann on the results of his examination of the 2001 Accounts of Government Departments and Offices. The Report identifies issues, which in his opinion, merit consideration by the Committee of Public Accounts in the interests of transparency and accountability

The report deals with 

  • any matters considered appropriate to report on arising from audits of the appropriation accounts prepared by the Accounting Officers of government departments and offices in relation to the appropriations voted by Dáil Éireann for the previous financial year

  • any matters considered appropriate to report on arising from examinations of the internal accounting controls operated by government departments and offices (in the current or previous financial year) to ensure the regularity of their financial transactions, the correctness of their payments and receipts, the reliability and completeness of their accounting records and the safeguarding of the assets owned and controlled by them

  • the results of examinations of the accounts of the revenues collected by the Revenue Commissioners – these examinations include assessment of whether the accounts are complete and accurate, and whether the Revenue Commissioners have established and applied systems, procedures and practices that are adequate to secure an effective check on the assessment, collection and proper allocation of the revenues.
