Public Spending Code:
The Public Spending Code commenced in September 2013 and updated previous guidelines, circulars and directions in relation to capital appraisal and value for money.
The public spending code is designed to ensure that the State gets the best possible value for the resources at its disposal. The code applies to both capital and current expenditure and outlines what is required of public service managers at different points of the expenditure lifecycle such as appraising, planning, approving, implementing and reviewing.
The code replaces the previous spot check regime with a new streamlined quality assurance process and Government Departments are required to submit an annual Quality Assurance Report, signed off by the Accounting Officer to the Department of Public Expenditure & Reform.
An Garda Síochána is taking a strategic approach to energy management through the Public Sector Energy Partnership initiative.
To support this initiative An Garda Síochána implemented commitments contained under the Garda Environmental Strategy 2013 – 2015.
An Garda Síochána have implemented a number of energy efficiency projects in collaboration with the OPW and funding received through the Sustainable Energy Authority of Ireland.
The overall aim is to achieve the public sector energy saving targets set out under the National Energy Efficiency Action Plan 2009 – 2020 published by the Department of Communications, Energy & Natural Resources.
