Written answers (Question to Education)

I propose to take Questions Nos. 104 and 105 together.

As the Deputy will be aware, my Department has had a process underway with the higher education sector to compile information on projects delivered for the period since 2008.

This process has recently concluded on foot of consultation with the universities and Institutes of Technology.

In the context of the above, I am now attaching the requested updated information for projects completed during the period since 2008 which was previously forwarded to the Deputy on 15 May last. The Deputy will note one minor change (highlighted in red) in respect of the final project cost for one completed building following recent clarifications received from the Institution in question.

As you will be aware, a significant number of projects, particularly in the university sector, were delivered without funding from my Department. In all cases, the higher education institutions are the responsible bodies for project delivery and ongoing management.
