Written answers (Question to Education)

As the Deputy is aware, the project to which he refers is devolved to the OPW for delivery.

I can confirm that the Stage 2B report (preparation of tender documentation) has been received from the OPW and is currently being assessed. The Department is awaiting further information from the OPW in that respect. Tender documents can be expected to issue to the shortlisted tenderers immediately after the completion of this assessment.

The Deputy may also be aware that the OPW has confidence that the enabling works on site, which had been delayed due to unforeseen circumstances, will be completed this month.
