Written answers (Question to Employment)

The Department’s capital allocation for the years 2018 to 2022 is outlined in the table. However, this is subject to ongoing review in the context of the annual Estimates process.

The capital allocation will be split across three subheads i.e. A.2.v Office Equipment and External IT Services, A.2.vi Office Premises Expenses and A.2.ix eGovernment Related Projects. It is intended that the allocation will primarily assist the Department in delivering additional IT modernisation and allow for the significant refurbishment of the Department’s Áras Mhic Dhiarmada and other buildings in the coming years.
