Department of Education and Skills
Schools Building Projects Status
224. To ask the Minister for Education and Skills if tenders have been invited for the completion of a campus (details supplied) in County Kildare; the number of contractors from which tenders have been sought; the closing date for receipt of tenders for the project; when the successful contractor will be on site; if the completion date remains June 2020; and if he will make a statement on the matter. [9552/19]
The Deputy will be aware that the delivery of the project to which he refers has been devolved to Kildare and Wicklow Education & Training Board (KWETB).
I understand that the project will be going to tender very shortly. I can confirm that tenders are being sought from eight contractors and that the timeframe for receipt of tenders is expected to be in early April with a view to getting on site early in the summer. I also understand that the project remains on course for delivery within the timeframe referred to by the Deputy.
