Northern Ireland Assembly: Oral Answers to Questions: Capital Budget (1 Apr 2014)

Simon Hamilton: ...be hastened up and progressed, we could be in a position whereby capital money might be at risk of being lost and going back to the Treasury.  With that in mind, I have asked the subgroup of the procurement board to look at a whole range of issues for the delivery of major capital projects.  On this issue, I favour an approach whereby the Executive as a whole take a decision to...

Stephen Farry: ...business case will also consider future provision in the Larne area. The business case is considering the range of options to identify the value for money option, the funding requirements and the procurement route.  Until the business case has been received, assessed and approved, I am not in a position to be definitive about the college’s future plans.  However, I can assure you that...

Northern Ireland Assembly: Oral Answers to Questions: Primary Schools: Computer-based Assessment (25 Mar 2014)

John O'Dowd: During the last procurement exercise and the delivery of this project, one of the key mistakes made was that it was rushed.  People steamed ahead towards a deadline, and, at some stage in that rush, there should have been a call to stop and evaluate where things were going.  I do not want to make that mistake again.  A number of lessons learned from, and recommendations in, the Hudson and...

Northern Ireland Assembly: Private Members' Business: Social Housing:  Affordable Homes (24 Mar 2014)

Sammy Wilson: ....  One year of that was due to messing about by NIEA, which is part of the Department that the SDLP Minister is responsible for, in getting land contamination dealt with.  There is planning, procurement of land and tendering.  How does the SDLP expect to get another 2,000 houses into the programme and get them built — or even started — within a year?  Physically, I do not believe...

I thank the Member for his question.  In March 2011, the Assembly Commission procured an independent Internet connection for use in Parliament Buildings.  The hardware and installation costs for that service were £54,595, with recurring costs of £14,260 per annum.  In...

Northern Ireland Assembly: Oral Answers to Questions: A6:  Smaller Projects (18 Mar 2014)

Cathal Ó hOisín: ...I acknowledge his announcement.  As someone whose birthday occurs today, it makes me only slightly older than the proposals for the Dungiven bypass — very slightly, I might add.  When will the procurement process for the three sections of the A6 that he has outlined commence?

Northern Ireland Assembly: Oral Answers to Questions: Suicide Awareness Training (25 Feb 2014)

Gordon Dunne: I thank the Minister for her answer, but, with all due respect, she has not answered my question.  The reply to a question for written answer — AQW 27495/11-15 — did not clarify the procurement procedures that were used.  It indicated that the award was made "via letter of offer" and not through the Public Contracts Regulations 2006.  Will the Minister now give us an assurance that, in...

Northern Ireland Assembly: Oral Answers to Questions: Welfare Reform (17 Feb 2014)

Simon Hamilton: ...the rest of the United Kingdom, we will have to replace that system, the cost of which is estimated at £1·6 billion over the next 10 years.  Then, there is the very real concern that, even in procuring a very expensive IT system of our own, it will take until beyond 2016 to put it in place.  The ramifications of that are that many people, including 200,000 working families in Northern...

Simon Hamilton: ...have done most and perhaps best is continue to invest in infrastructure across Northern Ireland.  We have assisted the construction industry by at least attempting to simplify and streamline the procurement process, as I outlined in response to other questions, and that has helped to reduce costs to the industry and, most importantly, public bodies.  That has maximised the funding...

Northern Ireland Assembly: Executive Committee Business: Budget Bill:  Second Stage (11 Feb 2014)

Simon Hamilton: ...concerns about capital funding.  He asked about better planning for capital funding, citing, I think, the A5 as an example.  I agree with him.  That is why I created a subgroup under the procurement board, which I chair, to look at that very issue.  I think that there are valid criticisms about our management of major capital projects.  I have asked it to look at a range of issues,...
