Deputy Emmet Stagg asked the Minister for Education and Science the number of tenders received for the construction of the new national school for Kill, County Kildare by the closing date of 9 March 2009; the estimated time for the evaluation of the tenders; and when the contract will be awarded.

Deputy Batt O’Keeffe Deputy Batt O’Keeffe
Deputy Batt O’Keeffe: The project to which the Deputy refers is a new 32 classroom primary school plus ancillary accommodation. Following an initial pre-qualification process, ten contractors were invited to tender and seven valid tenders were returned by the closing date of 9 March 2009. The valid tenders are currently being examined and, while this process is ongoing, it is not appropriate to provide any further detail concerning the tenders. Subject to the necessary technical and financial approvals, it is expected that I will be in a position to place a contract in the near future.
