I propose to take Questions Nos. 208 and 211 together.

My Department's capital allocation for the years 2018 to 2022 is outlined in the following table.

2018

2019

2020

2021

2022

Total

€5.2m

€4.9m

€4.9m

€5.0m

€5.0m

€25.0m

In this period, capital expenditure by the Department will be principally invested by the Office of the Government Chief Information Officer to support the implementation of the Public Service ICT Strategy, as well as to invest in the Department's own IT infrastructure. In addition, some capital has been allocated in the 2018 Revised Estimates to complete the E-Cohesion project (€85,000) and to invest in the Civil Service Learning and Development learning management system (€1.6 million).

For sectoral allocations throughout Government, I can refer the Deputy to Annex 1 of the recently published National Development Plan.
