Northern Ireland Assembly: Oral Answers to Questions — Finance: New Decade, New Approach: Civil Service Reform (24 Nov 2020)

Conor Murphy: ...of arm's-length bodies is under way, with stage 1 complete. I am discussing with Executive colleagues the creation of a Civil Service reform team in DOF that will develop a wider reform plan. The Procurement Board will be reconstituted to include an expert advisory panel appointed from key sectors in the economy. I will consider last week's NIAO report on Civil Service capacity and...

Northern Ireland Assembly: Oral Answers to Questions — Communities: Libraries: Enniskillen (23 Nov 2020)

Carál Ní Chuilín: ...in Enniskillen. While the project is at an early stage, my Department has already allocated £150,000 in this financial year to Libraries NI to allow it to advance the project to the design and procurement phase. I can also confirm that a design team has been appointed to progress the concept design and the necessary feasibility studies and develop the design for the project. The...

Northern Ireland Assembly: Oral Answers to Questions — Communities: Social Housing: Ring-fencing (23 Nov 2020)

Carál Ní Chuilín: When the proposals come back, I will talk to other Departments. I want to go further to ensure that the way in which procurement happens is not open to as much challenge. Even current Housing Executive contracts are challenged at a low rate, which holds back procurement and contracts. I want to make sure that it is done as part of any contract, so social clauses, social benefits and social...

Northern Ireland Assembly: Executive Committee Business: Domestic Abuse and Family Proceedings Bill: Consideration Stage (17 Nov 2020)

John Blair: ...amendments that require considerable IT system investment by the PSNI or other criminal justice agencies. We must be careful with the additional capital requirement on time frames for the planning, procurement and delivery of such systems and how that might adversely affect progress on the eagerly awaited aspects of the Bill. Therefore, my position is that I hope for progress, at later...

Northern Ireland Assembly: Questions for Urgent Oral Answer — Health: Flu Vaccinations (16 Nov 2020)

Robin Swann: ...in Northern Ireland. There are reports today of another vaccine coming on to the market, which its makers claim to be 95% effective. That is not one of the vaccines that were part of the UK pre-procurement exercise, but I am led to believe that the UK Government are in negotiation with that company to make sure that, if it becomes available safely on the market, they will have access to...

Northern Ireland Assembly: Ministerial Statements: North/South Ministerial Council: Aquaculture and Marine (16 Nov 2020)

Edwin Poots: ...will be available from 15 December and will be in place. That is the action that has been taken. Permanent facilities will not be available until, probably, the middle of next year, but the procurement procedures have started, the companies have been awarded the contracts and certificates of lawful use or development (CLUDs) are now available for three of the four sites. Work will probably...

Northern Ireland Assembly: Private Members' Business: Manufacturing Sector during the COVID-19 Pandemic (9 Nov 2020)

Diane Dodds: ...hit so significantly by COVID-19 that it will require a significant tail of help to recover from the pandemic. I agree with the proposer of the motion that further financial support and the better procurement of defence contracts would be of immediate help to the aerospace sector, where many of our companies carry out a dual role. I also welcome the planned city and growth deal investment...

Northern Ireland Assembly: Oral Answers to Questions — Communities: Housing Executive Maintenance Contracts (3 Nov 2020)

Carál Ní Chuilín: I will get the exact figure for the Member, because it has changed. It has changed because, as we mentioned earlier, there have been procurement challenges in some areas that have put back maintenance contracts. The threshold for challenging procurement contracts is so low that anyone with 250 quid can go into a court to object to millions of pounds of procurement to alleviate some of the...

Northern Ireland Assembly: Ministerial Statement: Housing Policy (3 Nov 2020)

Carál Ní Chuilín: ...sustainable tenancy. There are other areas of challenge. I know that there are long-standing issues with adaptations. We have affected some of the most vulnerable people in our society. Issues with procurement have led to some of the problems that have been experienced. The Housing Executive's pilot scheme in its southern region has shown that it is possible to reduce the time taken for...

We are pleased to report that the procurement process to appoint a works contractor to complete enabling works on the clock tower building is now under way. An appointment is expected by 30 November. The works programme is...

Northern Ireland Assembly: Ministerial Statement: North/South Ministerial Council: Transport Sectoral Meeting (2 Nov 2020)

Nichola Mallon: ...up our travel corridor on this island. I worked closely with Minister Ryan to see the study extended, and our officials are now working to finalise the terms of reference before proceeding to procurement. Minister Ryan and I have a shared desire to enhance rail connectivity across our island, and we recognise the benefits of this cleaner, greener, more sustainable mode of transport and are...

Northern Ireland Assembly: Oral Answers to Questions — Infrastructure: Flood Alleviation Scheme: Newcastle (20 Oct 2020)

Nichola Mallon: ...to the residents that I will do everything that I can to see the flood alleviation scheme accelerated. Having been there too, the Member will be aware of that. Work is ongoing. We are moving to the procurement of contractors. Officials are working to a timeline in which construction will begin in early 2021. As I have said to officials and elected representatives there, I have asked my...

Northern Ireland Assembly: Oral Answers to Questions — Health: Ventilator Capacity (20 Oct 2020)

Robin Swann: I thank the Member for his question. Since March 2020, the critical care network has procured 180 intensive care ventilators and 24 advanced patient transport ventilators to supplement the existing devices in the treatment of the most sick patients. Of those orders, 124 ventilators have been received, allocated and commissioned for use across our trusts. The remaining 80 ventilators are...

Northern Ireland Assembly: Oral Answers to Questions — Finance: Procurement Board (19 Oct 2020)

Conor Murphy: You are correct in that procurement is one part of public spending; it is about 25% of public spending, so it is very important. It is important that we have policies attached to that: things like social value and more efficiency around the spend are key. I am looking at the idea of a fiscal council to assist with the overarching spending plans and what levers we have available around revenue...

Northern Ireland Assembly: Oral Answers to Questions — Education: IT Equipment (19 Oct 2020)

Peter Weir: ...that were in the system, as there was initially a misunderstanding that devices in the system could not be easily adapted. However, they could be, through C2k. In addition, that scheme included the procurement of additional devices, and, also, critically for some rural areas, remote broadband connectivity solutions. In July, I announced that free Wi-Fi and mobile connectivity would be...

Northern Ireland Assembly: Executive Committee Business: Supply Resolution for the Northern Ireland Main Estimates 2020-21 and Supply Resolution for the Northern Ireland Estimates 2016-17 Statement of Excesses (19 Oct 2020)

Chris Lyttle: ...it over the next few years? In my position as an Alliance MLA, I draw to the Finance Minister's attention reports that funding from the Department of Education Engage programme has been used to procure access to private transfer test tutoring or tutoring applications for some pupils in Northern Ireland. Will the Minister and his Executive colleagues ensure that there is an assessment of...

Northern Ireland Assembly: Private Members' Business: Onshore Petroleum Licensing and Drilling (13 Oct 2020)

Diane Dodds: ...in Northern Ireland. This research is designed to help to inform the evidence on which we can base our future petroleum licensing policy. My Department is working through the final stages of the procurement exercise and intends to award the contract for this project in the coming days. There has been much speculation this afternoon in the House, and many have referred to the policy...

Northern Ireland Assembly: Oral Answers to Questions — The Executive Office: Investment Strategy: Update (13 Oct 2020)

Arlene Foster: ...of things that were not involved in the investment strategy when it was first drafted, but, since then, climate change in particular has become a huge issue for those of us who are involved in procurement. We in Northern Ireland spend a lot of government money, and it is important that climate change is part of that. I know that the Minister for Infrastructure now has a body looking at...
