Who We Are

The Department's Annual Budget

Exchequer funding for the Department, its offices and its agencies is provided by the Houses of the Oireachtas through the annual budget process managed by the Department of Public Expenditure and Reform.

The funding provision is targeted at growing Ireland’s economy through maintaining and developing sustainable high-quality jobs. The Department also plays a key role in regulating markets, ensuring fair competition and retaining an effective and efficient labour relations capability.

A core element of the Department’s funding relates to capital investment grants to support the ongoing development of Ireland’s enterprise, research and innovation capacity.
