My Department is located at Miesian Plaza, Lower Baggot Street , Dublin 2 which is leased by the OPW. There are four civil service Departments using this office space and the security company G4S provides security from 9pm to 7am Monday to Friday and 24/7 security at weekends and public holidays for the OPW tenant block. The costs of this are shared across the tenant Departments. The original contract for G4S was procured by the OPW and the tenant Departments continued this provision when they took occupancy in mid-2018. This will continue until a full managed service procurement process for the building, including security services, is carried out. This is expected to be completed by end 2019.The details and provision of security services for agencies under the remit of my Department are operational matters for the bodies concerned.
