Public Accounts Committee

National Paediatric Hospital Development Board: 2019 Financial Statement (Resumed)

9:30 am

Mr. Phelim Devine:

Out of the €446 million, 631 claims have been determined by the employer's representative at €2.8 million, which is added on to the contract sum. Of the €446 million, that 631 represents €331 million of the €446 million in claims. However, as Mr. Gunning said, the contractor has referred many of those ER determinations to dispute. The contractor disputed those determinations and has now entered a conciliation process.
