Written answers (Question to Education)

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

The project is in the final stages of the tender process. My Department has been engaging with OPW with respect to some issues that have arisen with respect to that process, including issues related to Covid-19 restrictions. I can confirm that a preferred tenderer has been identified and it is hoped that the tender process can conclude in the coming weeks in that respect.
