Dáil Eireann Debate
1052. Deputy Dinny McGinley asked the Minister for Education and Science the cost to date of inviting tenders for a school (details supplied) in County Donegal including architectural fees, consultants reports and other matters; and if he will make a statement on the matter. [11195/09]
Minister for Education and Science (Deputy Batt O’Keeffe): The project to which the Deputy refers was originally tendered in 2007. This project was one of 43 projects I announced on 12 February to go to tender and construction in 2009.
The fees applicable to the tender action stage of any school project represent 5% of the overall fees due to the Design Team. To date a total of €18,619.79 has been paid on fees relating to the tender action stage of this project. Any additional fees arising from re-tendering this project will be more than offset by the cost savings that will accrue due to current competitive market conditions.
