GSOC is an independent agency of the Department of Justice and Equality. Much of our administration is done through the Department. For example payroll, expenses, purchase orders, invoice processing and other financial services are processed by the Department of Justice Financial Shared Services Centre.
Payroll and expenses are processed by the central government Payroll Shared Service Centre. Human resources services are provided by Peoplepoint, the Government HR & Pensions Shared Service.

GSOC leases an office building on Abbey Street Dublin for its corporate headquarters. The majority of its staff are based here, with less than ten staff in two small regional Investigations team offices in Longford and Cork. We have 13 GSOC vehicles, which are fully owned. The organisation has no ongoing or planned capital projects.
