Department of Public Expenditure and Reform
Office of Public Works Data
163. To ask the Minister for Public Expenditure and Reform the capital budget allocation to the OPW in each of the years 2017 to 2019; the amount of the capital budget allocation spent in 2017 and 2018; and if he will make a statement on the matter. [30196/19]
The Capital Budget Allocation and Spend allocation to the OPW for the years 2017 to 2019 is as follows:
|Vote 13 OPW||2017 Allocation€000||2018 Allocation€000||2019 Allocation€000|
|Vote 13 OPW||2017 Expenditure€000||2018 Expenditure€000|
Savings within the 2017 capital allocation are primarily due to timing in placing the contract for the Integrated Workplace Management System. Savings within the 2018 capital allocation are primarily due to timing in planning approval for the commencement of some flood relief projects and the Home Relocation Scheme. The 2018 allocation includes a €22m supplementary estimate the majority of which related to the Papal Visit. Savings by the OPW in 2017 and 2018 on its capital allocation were vired for use by the Office on its current expenditure requirements.
