Public Spending Code

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 apply to ensure that these standards are upheld across the Irish public service. The Code brings together in one place all of the elements of the value-for-money framework that has been in force up to now, updated and reformed in some respects. The Code is maintained on this website under the management of the Central Expenditure Evaluation Unit (CEEU) of the Department of Public Expenditure & Reform as a resource for the entire Irish public service. In September 2013, Departments and Offices were formally notified by circular that the Public Spending is in effect.
