Ceisteanna (50)

Peadar Tóibín


50. Deputy Peadar Tóibín asked the Minister for Public Expenditure and Reform if he will provide in tabular form the number of occasions since March 2011 that a contracting authority has excluded an applicant from a public contract on the basis that there is a judgement by the Labour Court against the applicant; the number of occasions such an excluded applicant has made a case and provided supporting evidence on the reason it should not be excluded; and in such instances was the applicant subsequently excluded or included.

The information sought by the Deputy is not recorded centrally by my Department. The responsibility for implementation of the public procurement rules rests with individual contracting authorities. Details of any exclusion by a contracting authority of an applicant from a public procurement process would be held by the individual contracting authorities concerned.
