Written answers (Question to Justice)

The Direct Provision system is a whole of government approach to meet the needs of those persons who have entered the country and are seeking international protection. My Department is responsible for meeting the accommodation needs of those persons in the process who wish to avail of the offer of accommodation made to them. All centres are managed by commercial companies but seven of the centres are owned by the State.

The total expenditure in 2017 on accommodation and ancillary services by my Department to meet the accommodation needs of those persons seeking international protection was €57,679,449. This does not include the cost for the provision of Emergency Reception and Orientation Centres to meet the accommodation needs of those persons brought into the state under the Irish Refugee Protection Programme which entailed a further expenditure of €7,727,601 in 2017.

The table below details the current accommodation portfolio, whether the centres are commercially owned or state owned and the current contract expiration dates:
