As the Deputy will be aware, all vehicle tenders and contracts for Garda vehicles are handled through the Office of Government Procurement (OGP)  in consultation with An Garda Síochána. As Minister, I have no direct role in this matter.

I am informed by the Garda authorities that the OGP has entered into a contract, with effect from 20 November 2020, for the supply of unmarked cars to An Garda Síochána. This contract is effective for a period of two years with the option of a 12 month extension.

I am further informed that An Garda Síochána have ordered 42 unmarked cars for delivery in Quarter 3 of 2021.
