Written answers (Question to Education)

The building project referred to by the Deputy is being delivered under my Department’s Design and Build Programme and planning permission has been secured for the campus project.

My Department is currently in the process of establishing a Framework of Design and Build Contractors to which Design and Build projects can be tendered. The tender process commenced on the 4th December 2019. The second stage of the tender process which involves the detailed tender for several schools is expected to be concluded in Quarter 1 2021. My Department’s intention is to have the project referred to by the Deputy tendered as early as possible thereafter.
