The Comptroller and Auditor General has carried out examinations of three areas of responsibility of the Department of Education and Science - the Supervision and Substitution Scheme in Post-Primary Schools, Fulfilment of Employment Contracts in Institutes of Technology and The Commission to Inquire into Child Abuse. The examination of the Supervision and Substitution Scheme in Post-Primary Schools considered the value delivered by the resources expended on the scheme, equivalent to the cost of 37 hours per annum for each teacher employed by the Department. The examination of the Fulfilment of Employment Contracts in Institutes of Technology focussed on the systems and procedures in place in Institutes of Technology for the management of staff to ensure that the terms of their employment contracts are adhered to and that the services paid for are delivered. The examination of the Commission to Inquire into Child Abuse focussed on the timeliness and cost of its investigations.
