Summary:

This Technical Assistance Report presents a public investment management assessment (PIMA) in Ireland. Improving public investment would enable Ireland to bring the efficiency of its infrastructure closer to the frontier of best practice in advanced countries. The report’s recommendations, which the government is in the process of implementing, include strengthening the linkages between the national planning framework, the 10-year capital plan, and the budget; tightening financial rules on PPPs; increasing spending on maintenance; setting up a “project tracker” database; publishing more ex post reviews and audits of capital projects; and establishing a central register of infrastructure assets.
