When questioned about by this matter by Karl Fitzpatrick from Chevron Training, Minister Bruton stated that “Phil Hogan has made sure that in the design of the water metering initiative which he is planning to roll out, that it won’t be one big national contract”. Instead, it is planned that “it will be broken into hundreds of smaller contracts that will give people the opportunity to access them”, added Minister Bruton.
Karl Fitzpatrick welcomed this announcement by stating that “the decision to award these water meter installation contracts to local companies means that it will create significant employment opportunities throughout Ireland”. “However, it is now important to ensure that people develop the necessary knowledge and skills to be in a position to win these contracts”, added Mr. Fitzpatrick.
