Department - Arms-Length Body Relationships
Friday the 27th of April 2018, 08:00-10:30
Speaker(s): Dr. Fergal Lynch, Joan Martin, John Treacy
Central Government departments cannot themselves deliver all public services. As such, they are significantly dependent upon arms-length bodies and agencies to deliver a range of functions and services on their behalf. Just as such bodies bring many benefits for departments, including specialised focus, delivery and ‘close to the ground’ stakeholder engagement, they equally bring challenges in terms of ensuring strategic alignment, performance and compliance monitoring and democratic accountability. This Forum event will bring together three senior, expert speakers to discuss the approaches, issues and challenges in respect of relationships between Departments and arms-length bodies.
Members of the Forum are entitled to nominate three participants to the event without charge.
The price for fourth and additional nominees is €100. The cost for Non-Forum Members is €140 per person.
