Dáil Éireann provides money for the ordinary services of government departments and offices, both capital and non capital by approving estimates for those services in the course of each year and by giving statutory effect to the estimates in an annual Appropriation Act.
At the end of each financial year, each department or office is required to prepare an account known as the appropriation account for each voted service administered by it. The statutory requirement is for the appropriation account to provide details of the outturn for the year against the amount provided by Dáil Éireann based on the cash amounts of payments and receipts.
Below are the various different departments that produce these appropriation accounts, and all of which the Office is charged with auditing.
