Department of Communications, Climate Action and Environment
490. To ask the Minister for Communications, Climate Action and Environment further to Parliamentary Question No. 526 of 5 February 2019, the number of expressions of interest received by the closing date of 14 February 2019; when tenders will be invited from the shortlist; and if he will make a statement on the matter. [9505/19]
In December 2018, Kildare County Council, the contracting authority, invited tenders for expressions of interest in the remediation of Kerdiffstown landfill. The closing date for submissions was extended until 14 February 2019 on foot of requests for more time made on the eTenders procurement website. I have been advised by Kildare County Council that 43 individual companies looked at the documents by the original tender date. I have been further advised by Kildare County Council that it has received 4 Expressions of Interest by the extended dateline, and that these submissions are currently being reviewed.
