I propose to take Questions Nos. 1016 to 1018, inclusive, together.
My Department's ICT managed service is provided by the Minister for Public Expenditure and Reform through the Office of the Government Chief Information Officer (OGCIO).
There are currently 154 personal computing devices running the Microsoft Windows 7 operating system in my Department. I understand that all of these devices will be upgraded to Microsoft Windows 10 by the end of 2020.
In the meantime, extended support arrangements will be put in place for all devices running Windows 7 to ensure they continue to receive security updates and patches to protect against malware attack. It is expected that the cost of extended support for the period concerned will be in the region of €7,500.
