I propose to take Questions Nos. 823, 839, 866, 871, 914, 985 and 1054 together.

The projects referred to by the Deputy were listed to proceed to tender and construction as part of the 2004 school building programme. These projects did not proceed as quickly as envisaged due mainly to issues relating to planning permission, design teams being slower than anticipated in progressing projects and the need to revise briefs with reference to special needs requirements. It is envisaged that these projects will proceed as quickly as possible in 2005.

The day-to-day management of projects is a matter for each school and their design teams. The specific information requested by the Deputy is not readily available in my Department in the format requested by him.

As part of the expansion of the devolved schemes initiatives for primary school building works the schools referred to by the Deputy were allocated a predetermined grant to enable the school management authorities to provide additional accommodation and/or improvements works.

The initiatives facilitate the boards of management by allowing them to address their accommodation and building priorities. It also provides a guaranteed amount of funding and gives boards of management control and responsibility for the building project.

As the initiatives are devolved it is the responsibility of each school management authority to determine the date the project proceeds to tender, the date the tender is accepted, the duration of the contract period and most importantly to manage the post contract control in respect of both costs and provision.

The projects referred to by the Deputy were listed to proceed to tender and construction as part of the 2004 school building programme. The tendering process is either under way or completed on these projects and it is envisaged that they will proceed to construction as early as possible in 2005.

The day-to-day management of projects is a matter for each school and their design teams. The specific information requested by the Deputy in relation to each project is not readily available in my Department in the format requested by him. In broad terms there are many reasons which can cause unexpected delays in the pace at which some projects advance. These include an appeal of planning permission by third parties to An Bord Pleanála, contractors withdrawing tenders and design teams being slower than anticipated in getting projects tendered.

The current position relating to proposed works at the school referred to by the Deputy is that the school applied for and was successful in securing funding under the 2004 summer works scheme, SWS, for the first phase of the replacement of the roof. This was completed in 2004. An application under the 2005 SWS has been received from the school management for the second phase of roof replacement. As I outlined in early December, when setting out details of the schools building and modernisation programme, I will announce in February details of the schools that will receive funding based on the applications being processed by my officials.

Tenders for the project to which the Deputy refers were not agreed and, therefore, work did not start. The original plan was to locate this project on a greenfield site.

The projects referred to by the Deputy were listed to proceed to tender and construction as part of the 2004 school building programme. These projects did not proceed as quickly as envisaged due mainly to issues relating to planning permission, sites or design teams being slower than anticipated in progressing projects. It is envisaged that these projects will proceed as quickly as possible in 2005. The day-to-day management of projects is a matter for each school authority and their design teams. The specific information requested by the Deputy is not readily available in my Department in the format requested by him.

As part of the expansion of the devolved schemes initiatives for primary school building works, the schools referred to by the Deputy were allocated a predetermined grant to enable the school management authorities to provide additional accommodation and-or improvements works. The initiatives facilitate the boards of management by allowing them to address their accommodation and building priorities. It also provides a guaranteed amount of funding and gives boards of management control and responsibility for the building project.

As the initiatives are devolved, it is the responsibility of each school management authority to determine the date the project proceeds to tender, the date the tender is accepted, the duration of the contract period and most importantly to manage the post contract control in respect of both costs and provision.

The school referred to by the Deputy was listed as a refurbishment-extension project for proceeding to tender and construction as part of the 2004 school building programme. Following discussions and correspondence with the Department, the board of management has advised the Department that it will purchase a site for a new school provided the project is changed to a new school. The Department has agreed to facilitate this request being explored provided it can be achieved within the existing budget set for the project.

The Department has made it clear to the board of management that the onus is on it to explore the new school option within an indicative timescale set by the Department. It is envisaged that interaction with the Department will be kept to a minimum. However, in the event of it not proving possible to progress the new school option for reasons such as site acquisition, budget issues etc., the project will revert back to a refurbishment-extension of the existing school. The board of management has accepted this and is currently working on the acquisition of a site following which they have been authorised to engage a design team to commence design work on the school.
