The following table sets out the number of contracts issued outsourcing some of the IT services of my Department. These contracts cover the provision of IT Helpdesk Services and the hosting of the Departmentâ€™s websites in the Local Government Computer Services Board (LGCSB). The only sub-contract was to ensure services were provided to my Departmentâ€™s office in Cavan.
IT contracts for Agencies under the aegis of my Department are operational matters for each Agency and I have no function in that regard.
