Written answers (Question to Communications)

My Department uses the Lotus Notes application primarily to interact with the Lotus Notes application services provided by the Houses of the Oireachtas. The continued use of this application over the next 5 years is dependent on the continuing availability of these services. It is not expected that the cost of licence renewal will increase to any significant extent in the next 5 years above that paid in previous years.

The licence costs associated with Lotus Notes renewal for the years 2009 to 2019 is outlined in the following table.
