A public consultation to inform the review was concluded in July 2012. A summary report of the submissions received was published on the Department's website in December. Work will continue on the review in the coming months and the Department will shortly be seeking tenders through the public procurement process for external input to this review. It is envisaged that the review will be completed in 2013.
