Following a procurement process conducted in accordance with EU and Irish procurement rules, the company in question was selected as one of the preferred tenderers for the provision of employment services under the JobPath programme. JobPath is a new programme of employment activation aimed specifically at the long-term unemployed (over 12 months) and those most distant from the labour market. The Department is currently in the process of finalising contracts for JobPath. It is expected that the programme will commence in mid-2015.
