In order to ensure that the Defence Forces have the capability to deliver on all of the roles assigned by Government, a Defence Forces Built Infrastructure Programme was developed and published in January 2020. This Programme, which is a 5 year plan, provides a blueprint for investment in the Defence Forces built infrastructure over a multi annual timeframe and is designed to modernise and enhance the training, operational and accommodation facilities of the Defence Forces. It is envisaged that over the 5 year lifespan of the Plan some €145m will be spent on implementation.
