    Promoter – Financial Intermediary

    DEPARTMENT OF EDUCATION AND SKILLS

    Location

    Description

    Part-financing of the school capital investment programme defined and implemented by the Department of Education and Skills (DES) of Ireland for the period 2016-2020

    Objectives

    The programme comprises the construction, extension and refurbishment of several small-scale (individual cost below EUR 25m) school facilities located all over Ireland. The new schools will have an attractive design and are intended to improve the quality and efficiency of education services' delivery.

    Sector(s)

    Proposed EIB finance (Approximate amount)

    EUR 200 million

    Total cost (Approximate amount)

    EUR 450 million

    Environmental aspects

    The project includes new buildings and extensions and renovation of existing primary and secondary schools. Directive 2011/92/EU does not specifically mention the need for an environmental impact assessment (EIA) for buildings related to education, but it may be that some sub-projects can be regarded as urban renewal projects and might require an EIA (Annex II of the directive). This will be examined during the appraisal.

    Procurement

    The procedures for tendering and procurement used by the promoter must comply with EU directives on procurement (Directives 2004/17/EC and 2004/18/EC amended by Regulation (EU) 1336/2013). The procedures will be analysed during the appraisal.
