Statement on Procurement Process from the Department of Education and Skills and Department of Further and Higher Education, Research, Innovation and Science



On 14 June the Department of Education and Skills published a Request for Information (RFI) to identify PPE, Consumables and Equipment Suppliers to support the education sector. This procurement has been managed as a negotiated procedure under Article 32 for the 2016 Procurement Regulations in order to secure supplies in time to reopen the sector’s schools and institutions.

The process has identified a number of suppliers that are capable of providing the full suite of core products required by the Government’s  Roadmap for the Full Return to School and this is considered the most favourable solution to meet the aggregated needs of the number and geographic spread of educational institutions – including schools – right across the State.
