Special Report 88 - Restructuring the Administration of Student Grants

Published on 15 April 2015

The Comptroller and Auditor General has prepared a special report on an examination of the restructuring of the administration of student grants. The report reviews the move from a decentralised system involving 66 grant awarding authorities to a single national awarding authority for student grants, called Student Universal Support Ireland (SUSI). It explores the extent to which serious operational issues in the academic year 2012/13 were consequences of the planning process for this project. The funding and administration costs of SUSI are also reviewed.
