Tender documents for the completion of the remaining works for the project to which the Deputy refers have issued to the seven shortlisted contractors. The extended deadline for the return of these tenders is today. It is expected that a tender report will be issued to the Department shortly in that context with a view to having a Letter of Intent ready to issue by the end of June.  The successful contractor will recommence work on site in early Q3 2019 and  the buildings will be available for occupation prior to September 2020.
