Written answers (Question to Education)

I propose to take Questions Nos. 329 and 330 together.

My Department already has a process underway with the higher education sector to compile information on projects delivered for the period since 2008. This process is nearing conclusion and will enable information for the period since 2008 to be provided to the Deputy in tabular format in the coming days.

This process has required consultation with the universities and institutes of technology, who are responsible for project delivery and hold the project files. A significant number of projects, particularly in the university sector, were delivered without funding from my Department.
