Written answers (Question to Transport)

Top Security Ltd is providing security services at my Department's offices in Cork. This is the only office of my Department where security services are being provided by an external company. Following a request for tenders in 2008, my Department awarded the contract to Top Security Ltd in 2008 for the provision of these services on the basis that it was the most economically advantageous tender received.

In respect of the agencies of my Department, I have referred the Deputy's question to them for direct reply. Please contact my private office if you do not receive a reply within 10 working days.

A referred reply was forwarded to the Deputy under Standing Order 42A
