I understand from clarification sought by my officials, that the Deputy's question relates specifically to Tusla and not in relation to other State bodies under my remit or the HSE.

The commissioning of non-residential services is an operational matter for Tusla. I have requested Tusla to respond directly to the Deputy regarding the information sought.

The Deputy may also be interested in Note 7 and the Appendices of Tusla's published 2019 Annual Financial Statements. The Appendices lists the individual service providers that received payments exceeding €50,000 by grant type. The statements were laid before the Houses of the Oireachtas in July 2020 and can be found on the Tusla website: https://www.tusla.ie/uploads/content/Tusla-Annual-Report-2019-eng-web.pdf
