Deputy Mary Hanafin:I am pleased to inform the Deputy that the process of engaging a Design Team for the building project at the school in question is underway. An advertisement seeking Expressions of Interest from suitably qualified consultants was published on the public procurement portal, www.etenders.gov.ie, on Monday 24 September on behalf of the Board of Management who, as Client, will oversee the competition. In the meantime, the Department’s Technical Division, which is taking on the role of Architect for the project, has already begun work on the early design phase of the project.
Progression of all projects to tender and construction will be considered in the context of my Department’s multi-annual School Building and Modernisation Programme.
