Public Spending Code (PSC) Review and Submission Schedule

Submission Deadline and Committee and Board Meeting Schedule

Forthcoming changes to this webpage: On 21 December 2023 the Department of Public Expenditure, NPD Delivery and Reform published the Infrastructure Guidelines (IGs) setting out the value for money guidelines for the evaluation, planning, and management of public investment projects, including purchase or acquisitions of assets or shareholdings, in Ireland. The Infrastructure Guidelines replace the Public Spending Code. These pages will therefore be updated to reflect the Infrastructure Guidelines over the coming months.
