However, in some instances, where there are no Service Officers in a building, additional security services are needed.

As regards the twelve State Bodies under the aegis of my Department, the information requested is an operational matter for the State Bodies themselves. I have referred the Deputy’s question to the Agencies and have requested that a response should issue within 10 days.

* Facilities Management Services are also provided at Backweston Campus and at Drumshanbo, which include security services, by Apleona and Aramark
