Dear Members

AECI Delegates attended a meeting in the Dept of Finance yesterday Thursday 11th December 2014 where Minister Simon Harris addressed all the stake holders who made submissions to change the manner in which Government contracts are processed.

The stake holders in attendance were:

  • AECI
  • ACEI
  • Chambers Ireland
  • CIF
  • Dept. of Arts, Heritage & the Gaeltacht
  • Engineers Ireland
  • Health and Safety Authority
  • ICTU
  • RIAI
  • SCSI

We would recommend you click on the link below to see the full “Report on the Review of the Performance of the Public Works Contract”, in which early comments appear to be positive that the Government Dept seem to have taking on board the suggestions in the various submissions. I would appreciate any comments you have on this document good or bad and we can then compile these and forward them to the Government Official responsible.
