In January 2016, the MCA publishes its decision on the ‘Review of GO plc’s application for funding of the net cost claimed to have been incurred to provide universal service obligations during 2012’ including the result of an auditing exercise carried out by an independent body. Following an analysis and assessment of the net costs claimed by GO plc, it was established that the calculated cost amounts to €125,110. Following a public consultation on the source of funding, the MCA is today publishing the decision entitled ‘Source of Funding for the net cost incurred in providing universal service obligations during 2012’ confirming that the Government shall be financing the claim from public funds.
