Written answers (Question to Education)

A major school building project to provide new accommodation for the school referred to by the Deputy has recently been authorized by my Department to proceed to tender for the appointment of a Building Contractor. The closing date for the completed tender returns is the end of November. Assuming no significant issues arise during the tender process, my Department expects that the project will progress to site in the first quarter of 2020 and the contract duration is 20 months.
