The information requested by the deputy in relation to capital projects is currently being collated. I will arrange for the information to be forwarded directly to the deputy shortly.

276. To ask the Minister for Education and Skills the capital projects completed since 2010; the final agreed tender price for each project; the actual cost of each project; if the actual cost exceeded the tender price; the reason therefor in each case in tabular form; and if he will make a statement on the matter.

Major school building completions across my Department regularly reach a yearly total of 40-50 projects.

In terms of providing cost details of all capital projects completed since 2010, this requires compilation of precise financial information in respect of 400-500 school building projects. The administrative burden upon my Department to carry out such a task is not warranted in the time available.

Therefore, I propose that the information requested will be forwarded subsequently to the Deputy in respect of all capital projects completed in the last 5 years.
