Public Procurement Contracts
336. To ask the Minister for Health when the available spaces on the panel for the provision of hand sanitiser to her Department and the HSE will go out to tender; and if he will make a statement on the matter. [17826/21]
All facilities management consumables for my Department are provided by our service contractor as part of a comprehensive facilities management service contract.
This contract was established in conjunction with the Office of Government Procurement (OGP) through a public procurement competition. It was conducted in accordance with the open procurement procedure as required under the European Union Award of Public Authority Contracts.
The contract that resulted from this competition was awarded in respect of the provision of all cleaning and hygiene related consumables, including hand sanitiser.
With regard to the HSE, I have forwarded your query to them and asked that they respond directly to you on this.
