Defence Forces High Level Action Plan

See below link to “Building for the Future – Change from Within”, the High Level Action Plan for the Report of the Commission on the Defence Forces approved by Government on 13 July 2022:!663H0V

The High Level Action Plan provides that:

  • 48 recommendations are accepted for implementation
  • 55 are accepted in principle with further consideration required on the optimal approach to meeting the intent of the Commission
  • 17 are desirable and will require further evaluation with key stakeholders, of the resource, policy, financial and legislative implications before a decision on implementation can be considered; and
  • 10 will need to revert to Government at a later stage (see section 3 below)

As set out in the High Level Action Plan, the implementation structures will comprise:

  • a High-Level Steering Board, chaired by the Secretary General of the Department of the Taoiseach
  • an Implementation Oversight Group (IOG), independently chaired, which will oversee and drive progress on implementation; and
  • an Implementation Management Office (IMO) which will drive day to day implementation with the support of a professional and highly‐skilled transformation team, drawn from both internal and external sources

The IMO’s initial focus will be on developing the Implementation Plan. This will be a living document and it is intended that the Implementation Plan will be published by end 2022.
