Ceist:

884. Deputy Sean Fleming asked the Minister for Health the position regarding the HSE procurement framework for private ambulances that is being operated; when the framework was established; the period covered by the framework; when the framework expired; the value of payments under the framework in each of the years 2015 to 2018 and to date in 2019; if these payments are in line with procurement rules in the HSE; the reason the current tendering for the framework for private ambulances has not progressed in view of the fact that the HSE is examining whether to continue or restart that process and its plans to pay for private ambulances outside of an approved procurement process; when he expects a new procurement framework for private ambulances to be in place; and if he will make a statement on the matter.
