Terms of reference for a review of the governance and culture at RTÉ will be brought to Cabinet this morning.
Media Minister Catherine Martin will also seek permission to appoint someone to examine the accounts of RTÉ going back a number of years.
The coalition party leaders discussed the external review of governance and culture at RTÉ on Monday night.
This morning Minister Martin will update the wider Cabinet when she brings forward terms of reference for the review.
It is expected to take six to eight months, however there will be a number of interim reports and the Minister hopes the work can be concluded sooner.
Minister Martin will also seek approval to appoint a qualified person to comb through accounts at RTÉ for previous years using powers under the Broadcasting Act.
Yesterday Ministers were reluctant to weigh in on broader structural change at RTÉ or the future funding models for the broadcaster.
However, they want greater transparency and a closer look at the books to find out how secret payments to Ryan Tubridy were made without being challenged - a process which will lead to management reform under new Director-General Kevin Bakhurst.
Ministers are also awaiting a separate Grant Thornton report into €120,000 worth of planned payments to the presenter prior to 2020, which still remain unexplained.
