Adobe PDF format  Special Report No. 5: Garda Interview Recording Systems

Facilities to record evidence taken by police were installed in 220 interview rooms in police stations across the country. The equipment which was purchased in 2001 consists of audio visual recording equipment using VHS. This report examines whether the process for the identification and acquisition of the equipment represented good public procurement practice and whether the acquisition of the equipment complied with public procurement law. By convention, the tendering parties' views were not sought in the compilation of this report since it deals only with the discharge of accountability by the State Body involved in regard to the regularity, propriety and financial effects of its procurement function. Therefore, the views of the State Body which assessed the tender proposals are recorded only as evidence of its assessment and are not represented as evidence of the correctness of that assessment.
