Department of Public Expenditure and Reform Irish Language Scheme 2015 – 2018

Published: 17 December 2018
From: Department of Public Expenditure and Reform

This is the first Irish Language Scheme prepared by the Department of Public Expenditure and Reform under section 11 of the Official Languages Act 2003 .

This Scheme has been developed to set out a standard approach across the Department to fulfill Irish language obligations. It also takes into account what is practical and achievable over three years. The Scheme builds upon the existing services and on the principles of Quality Customer Service . Responsibility for monitoring and reviewing the scheme will rest with the senior management.

A notice was published in May 2014 inviting representatives to take part in a consultation on the scheme. Views received during this period informed the results. The Department would like to thank all those who took the time to engage with this process.

The department will carry out regular audits to determine the level of queries/requests for services through Irish. They will be continually met in a planned, coherent and accessible way.

Commencement date of Scheme

This Scheme has been confirmed by the Minister for Arts, Heritage and the Gaeltacht and has effect from October 2015. It will remain in force for a period of 3 years from this date or until a new Scheme has been confirmed by the Minister.
