Work in Progress - Ministerial Directions

Work in progress

We are currently undertaking work in order to produce this publication. Details of when we aim to publish the finalised report are indicated below.

It will provide a factual overview of the ministerial direction process, its application, and how it operates in Northern Ireland for the period from 1998 to 2022.  It will set out the responsibilities of departments, the role of the Comptroller and Auditor General (C&AG) for NI, along with the NI Assembly and Executive scrutiny roles.

We aim to publish this report in February 2023.
