Joint Oireachtas Committee on Finance, Public Expenditure and Reform, and Taoiseach
I acknowledge and I restate that there are aspects of how this project has developed and there are effects and consequences from which there will be clear learnings and that we will need to look at how this needs to be done differently. What is very challenging about this situation is that we manage and are responsible for hundreds of projects across the country that are delivered in the way we intended and on budget. A significant issue has developed with this flagship project. When the work of PwC has been completed, it will clearly be the subject of learnings regarding what needs to be done differently for a project of this scale in the future.
