I propose to take Questions Nos. 533 and 541 together.

In December 2018, Kildare County Council, the contracting authority, invited tenders for the remediation of Kerdiffstown landfill. The closing date for submissions was extended until 14 February 2019 on foot of requests for more time made on the eTenders procurement website.

This process of evaluation is still underway and Kildare County Council have now shortlisted tenders received from interested parties who have engaged in the tendering process, with a view to awarding a successful tenderer by the end of this year. The procurement process is being managed by Kildare County Council in accordance with the Office of Public Procurement guidelines and regulatory framework. Information is available on the Kildare County Council website (Kerdiffstown Park) at http://www.kildare.ie/countycouncil/kerdiffstownpark/.
