Public Service Reform
Funding for the activities of the Office of the Ombudsman is provided by the Oireachtas under Vote 19. This Vote also funds the activities of the Standards in Public Office Commission and the Office of the Information Commissioner (incorporating the Office of the Commissioner for Environmental Information). The Action Plan Progress and Sustainable Savings First Reports, which were submitted to the Public Service Agreement 2010-2014 Implementation Body, relate to all three Offices.
Under the Public Service Reform plan, the Office of the Information Commissioner has committed to publishing details of purchase orders of €20,000 or more online by the end of 2012.
