The bank concerned has not been awarded any contracts by the Department of Finance for the period 1 January 2016 to date.

My Department also has 17 Bodies under the Aegis and none of these bodies have awarded State contracts to the detailed bank in the years of 2016 to date. However, the detailed bank is one of the financial institutions that, on foot of an open call, offers the Future Growth Loan Scheme on behalf of the Strategic Banking Corporation of Ireland (SBCI). They are not remunerated by the SBCI for the provision of this service.

It should be noted that the Department of Finance does not retain any information concerning state contracts that have been awarded by other Government Departments or the agencies under their remit.
