As a public body in receipt of Exchequer funding the University is required to apply certain practices, procedures and guidelines, as set out by various Irish government departments, with regard to the management and control of its capital works projects.
To address these requirements the University's Executive adopted an initial Capital Works Framework in November 2015 and subsequently updated it, most recently in October 2022. The Framework sets out, at a high level, how the University's senior management seeks to exercise control and meet its oversight responsibilities for the the management of capital works that are either initiated by the University, or one of its wholly owned subsidiary companies.
Members of staff who wish to view the current Framework may access it at the link below.
