Written answers (Question to Public)

The Commissioners of Public Works in Ireland (CPW) commenced a project to procure and implement an Integrated Workplace Management System (IWMS), which was approved by the OPW Management Board and Office of the Government Chief Information Officer (OGCIO). This project is being delivered as a three-phase programme.

Following a procurement process, the software platform chosen by OPW for its IWMS is IBM TRIRIGA. Tririga provides for functionality for all aspects of property management within a single technology platform. The TRIRIGA system also facilitates integration with other key software systems in use in OPW such as the INTEGRA financial system.

The system will hold property and property-related data for internal operational use and will not be publicly accessible.
