Reporting accounts are subject to audit by the Office of the Comptroller and Auditor General.
Financial control & the Board of Pobal
The Board of Pobal is responsible for ensuring that financial statements comply with the Companies Acts, 1963 to 2012. This includes ensuring that proper books of account are kept, which disclose with reasonable accuracy the financial position at any time.
The Board of Pobal has taken steps to ensure that finances are monitored and controlled. These include:
- Assigning management responsibilities in a clearly defined organisational structure
- Adopting the principles of corporate governance according to the Code of Practice for the Governance of State Bodies (as appropriate to our size and nature)
- Establishing formal procedures to monitor Pobal’s activities and to safeguard its assets
