I propose to take Questions Nos. 98 and 99 together.

My Department received a Capital Allocation of €1,890,000 in the 2019 Estimates.

Due to changes in the programme structure for 2019 it has been decided to allocate certain support costs such as IT and Office Premises Costs on a 50:50 basis to my Department’s two remaining programmes. As such the Capital Allocation which is a provision for Office Premises and IT and Office Equipment expenditure has been allocated on that basis.

The Capital budget for 2019 is to cover the projects outlined in the table below.

The amount relating to Various Office Premises Projects is a provision to allow us to engage OPW to carry out various necessary works on our buildings on a case by case basis as their resources become available.  

As of today’s date it is planned that projects will be commenced and completed in 2019 that will use the entire allocation.
