The project at the school referred to by the Deputy is at an advanced stage of architectural planning. My Department wrote to the school last week approving stage 2(b) - Detailed Design.

The school has been advised that its design team should now ensure that a full and complete, co-ordinated package of tender documents are available for issue to tenderers. When these are ready, the Board will write to my Department confirming same. Upon receipt of written confirmation from the school, my Department will approve the project for progression to Tender.

The closing date for the receipt of applications under the Summer Works Scheme 2010 is 27 November next.

Following an assessment process, projects will be selected for funding from all valid and approved applications on a top down basis in accordance with the prioritisation criteria published with the Scheme.

In keeping with the timetable published with the governing Circular letter, I expect to be in a position to publish the list of successful applicants in March 2010.
