The primary EU Directive governing public procurement is Directive 2014/24, incorporated into Irish Law by [European Union (Award of Public Authority Contracts) Regulations 2016 - S.I. 284/2016]

The Department of the Taoiseach does not have any contracts of an indefinite period. All contracts entered into by the Department are for a specific period agreed by both parties prior to signature. Any contracts with a provision for an extension must be for a duration agreed by both parties which will be clearly stated on contract documentation.
