Joint Oireachtas Committee on Communications, Climate Action and Environment
National Broadband Plan: Discussion
Ms Michele Connolly:
The pre-qualification documentation, as is the norm on any project of this nature, set out requirements against which people had to put their submission in on day one. It would have also, at the time, set out what happens in the event that the bidding entity seeks to make a change for whatever reason. Changes often happen in the make-up of a company or a consortium bidding for a project, so our tender documents would have provided for that and set out a detailed procedure to be followed in the event that the corporate or consortium sought to make a change.
