The 2023 allocation for projected overall ICT Strategic expenditure for the Department of Justice Vote is approximately €23 million current and €10 million capital which includes additional allocation to fund the digitalisation of a range of ICT services.

While these figures are not broken down by the categories outlined by the Deputy, digitalisation needs relating to immigration and international protection are a significant component of this expenditure across a number of categories of expenditure including hardware, software and professional services.

My Department's ICT related expenditure year to date (end of October) in 2022 is in the region of €14.5m.
