As you will be aware, Kerry ETB made a decision to deliver the Youthreach programme directly from 1 January 2019 and this transition has now taken place. While the Department had a role in relation to issues such as ETB staffing and pension implications and potential lease arrangements, it is entirely a matter for Kerry ETB to determine if there is any cost liability to KDYS arising out of the process.

I understand Kerry ETB has offered to refer certain cost matters to mediation or binding arbitration as per their service level agreement and it is open to KDYS to take up this offer.
