Ceisteanna (158)

Catherine Murphy

Ceist:

158. Deputy Catherine Murphy asked the Minister for Education and Skills the reason the number of prequalified contractors has been reduced from ten to eight in the re-tendering process for the two schools in Maynooth education campus; if his attention has been drawn to the fact that Kildare and Wicklow Education and Training Board, KWETB, has reduced this number to seven prequalified contractors and that the tender is to go out the week ending 8 March 2019; and if he will make a statement on the matter.

I can inform the Deputy that only eight valid submissions were received for the prequalification process in respect of the retendering of the project to which she refers. One of those submissions failed to meet the minimum prequalification criteria. In that context, tender documents for completion of the project will issue to seven contractors next week.
