Following an examination of my Department's FMS system, the information requested by the Deputy in respect of my Department is outlined in the table. 

In respect of Capita Business Support Services Ireland Ltd., the relationship is now between Symantec and the Department of Education and Skills and there is no reliance on Capita for the supply of the goods going forward. The goods have been already supplied and paid for by the Department of Education and Skills and there are multiple resellers of these goods available if we require additional goods.
