Bhronn Foras na Gaeilge conradh ar SPT le hanailís a dhéanamh ar na haighneachtaí a tháinig de thoradh an phróisis comhairliúcháin poiblí agus ar an aiseolas a tháinig tríd na cruinnithe poiblí agus tríd na grúpaí fócais.

Ireland’s North South Ministerial Council (NSMC) decided in January 2009 to reform it’s funding of 19 Irish Language Organisations. A public consultation process was held in the spring of 2012 as regards a change from core-funding for all to a New Funding Model (NFM) that Foras na Gaeilge, Ireland’s cross-border public body responsible for the promotion of Irish throughout Ireland, had proposed. Foras na Gaeilge contracted SPT to analyse the written submissions and the feedback from public meetings and focus groups. Later in 2012, SPT delivered a comprehensive analysis highlighting both the opinions on the NFM and the alternative proposals to it that were to be found in the consultative process.
