Circular L1(DPI)01-2019 (24 July 2019) sought bids from local authorities for funding under the Developer Provided Water Services Infrastructure Resolution Programme 2019- 2021. A total number of 19 local authorities with Developer Provided Water Services Infrastructure in residential estates in their areas made applications for funding.
An Expert Panel was put in place by the Department to support the bids evaluation process and make recommendations on the suitability of project estates for funding based on the objective criteria set out in the Framework document for the multi-annual programme issued to local authorities when requesting bid proposals. In addition to providing an expert perspective, the Expert Panel brings independence, openness and transparency to the bids evaluation process which is done on a national basis. The Expert Panel’s membership includes Departmental, stakeholder and independent representation.
The Minister, in considering the recommendations of the Expert Panel, has accepted these in full and the purpose of this Circular is to inform local authorities of these decisions which in the case of the approvals and projects requiring further information are included in the attached appendices
