I propose to take Questions Nos. 216 and 218 together.
I have been advised by my Department that the Bidding Consortium in the National Broadband procurement process is led by Granahan McCourt and that the bidder has nominated a number of key subcontractors including enet, Nokia, Actavo, the Kelly Group and KN Group to assist in the delivery of the National Broadband Plan Contract.
My Department is evaluating the Final Tender submission received from the Bidding Consortium on 18 September 2018. This is a significant milestone as the NBP procurement process has now entered its final stage.
