Written answers (Question to Transport)

I understand that the information sought by you is to cover the period from 2008 to date.

In this regard, Aramark has provided security, cleaning and caretaking duties to my Department from November 2008 until September this year. The value of these services, that is, the sum total that has been paid to the company by my Department for this period, is €854,738.93.

There were no public sector or publicly funded catering services provided by this company to my Department over that time.

It should be noted that the functions of the Departments of Tourism and Sport were only transferred to this Department in April 2011.
