Date published: 25 January 2023

On 25 January 2023, we published a 33 point action plan to improve governance across the NI Civil Service. The plan is in response to findings from an independent external review undertaken by PwC to examine the handling of concerns and other matters raised in a case taken by a former DAERA employee.
