Public Spending Code Compliance
Circular 13/13: “The Public Spending Code: Expenditure Planning, Appraisal and Evaluation in the Irish Public Service – Standard Rules and Procedures” came into effect in September 2013. In July 2019 the Public Spending Code was amended to update the central technical references and economic appraisal parameters in the Spending Code. In December 2019 the Public Spending Code was further amended as it applies to capital expenditure, updated the Guidelines for the use of PPPs and consolidated the Public Spending Code guidance on the website of the Department of Public Expenditure and Reform.
The code was developed and introduced so that best value is achieved by the state for the resources it has at its disposal.
All bodies, including Local Authorities, in receipt of public funding are obliged to comply with the requirements of the Code. Each Authority is required to complete a Quality Assurance process and publish an annual report which is signed off by the Chief Executive.
