Public Spending Code Compliance

 

Public Spending Code Compliance

The Public Spending Code (PSC) has been in force on a formal basis following Circular (13/13) issued by the Department of Public Expenditure and Reform in September 2013. It sets out a unified approach to ensure that all public funds are treated with care and that best value for money is obtained. The PSC contains a set of rules and procedures that ensure that an appropriate standard is met across the Irish public service.
