Written answers (Question to Education)

I wish to advise the Deputy that my Department issued final grant approval for the provision of three temporary classrooms and toilet block in December 2018, to the school in question, as a devolved project.

A devolved project allows individual school authorities the means to address their approved accommodation and building priorities with a guaranteed amount of funding and gives them day to day control of their building project. It is a central tenet of the devolved schemes that responsibility for the management of a project, including cost control, start and completion dates, rests with the school authority.
