We are responsible for managing considerable public funds and we place accountability at the heart of the work of our Department. We account for the provision of our services to Irish citizens, Ireland’s foreign policy and our spending. We are accountable to the public through a number of public bodies and institutions and members of the Oireachtas in the first instance. We have also established a number of oversight mechanisms for how we account for our work.
