I propose to take Questions Nos. 259 and 262 together.

The International Protection Procurement Services (IPPS) unit of the Immigration Service Delivery function of my Department is responsible for the procurement, contract management, inspection and payments functions associated with the accommodation provided to persons seeking international protection.

The two tables below list the contract dates of both the Commercial and State-owned accommodation centres.

Where a contract for a centre is shown as having passed its expiry date, it is awaiting verification under an ongoing procurement process, and has been rolled over in the interim.

In relation to Emergency Accommodation, my Department is using hotels and guesthouses to meet current demand for accommodation services for protection applicants as there is insufficient capacity within our accommodation portfolio presently. These premises are contracted on short term contracts (3 months) which are evaluated and renewed if required on expiry. The last renewal date for emergency contracts was on 19 July 2020 and they will be reassessed before the 3 month expiry of those rollover contracts on 10 October 2020. Due to commercial sensitivities and to protect the right to anonymity of our residents, the Department does not divulge which hotels and guesthouses it is utilising for emergency purposes.
