Written answers (Question to Education)

While my Department understands that the pre-qualification process for the project to which the Deputy refers is well advanced, a pre-qualification report is still awaited in my Department. This is expected shortly. Once this has been received and reviewed, my Department expects to be in a position to firm up approval for the project to proceed to tender to the short listed contractors. Until the prequalification process has been finalised, it is not possible to say when the tender process will be completed and when the contract will be awarded.
