Written answers (Question to Public)

I wish to advise the Deputy that from 2014 to date, no public tender competitions ran by my Department have disqualified economic operators on the grounds outlined in the question. As such, no claims against the State have been brought on these grounds as a result of any public tender competitions ran by my Department.

The information above sets out the position in respect of the Department of Public Expenditure and Reform. If the Deputy wishes to obtain this information in respect of other Government Departments, separate questions should be submitted to the relevant Ministers.
