426. To ask the Taoiseach and Minister for Defence further to Parliamentary Question No. 371 of 15 September 2021, if tenders for the courses and training provided were issued; if so, the persons who responded; the criteria by which the course provider was ultimately chosen; and if he will make a statement on the matter.

Further to the Deputy’s earlier question, I wish to advise that places on this programme were initially facilitated by the Department of Public Expenditure and Reform. My Department availed of the opportunity to send participants on this programme but was not involved in the original procurement process.

Interest in participating in the programme was sought from employees in appropriate grades and the individual participation fee per employee was met by my Department. Learning of this nature offers a unique opportunity for senior managers to engage in a dynamic programme that focuses on developing key capabilities for personal growth. Learning and development opportunities are kept under review on an ongoing basis to ensure the requirements of the Department are met.
