My Department has a contract for the provision of security services for its Dublin and Cavan offices with Key Guard Security Limited. The contract duration is three years with an option of extending it for up to twelve months. The contract was awarded following a competitive tendering process under the Office of Government Procurement Security Services Framework Agreement.

The information sought by the Deputy regarding the public bodies under the aegis of my Department is an operational matter for each body. I will request the relevant bodies to reply directly to the Deputy with the information requested in respect of their organisation.
