The Public Spending Code

Published: 8 May 2019
From: Department of Public Expenditure and Reform

All Irish public bodies are obliged to treat public funds with care, and to ensure that the best possible value for money is obtained whenever public money is being spent or invested.

The Public Spending Code is the set of rules and procedures that ensure that these standards are upheld across the Irish public service. In September 2013, Departments and Offices were formally notified by circular that the Public Spending Code is in effect.

The Code is maintained on the website https://publicspendingcode.per.gov.ie/ under the management of the Government Accounting Unit of the Department of Public Expenditure and Reform. This website is a resource that can be used by the entire public service of Ireland.
