The NDFA is supporting the Department of Education (DoE) by delivering an element of the Department's school building programme on its behalf.
The Exchequer Funded Schools Programme (also known as the Devolved Schools Building Programme 2 (DSBP2)) initially comprised of 20 individual school building projects ranging from new builds, to extensions / refurbishment projects for works at both primary and post primary level. The DoE has recently referred a further 17 school projects to the NDFA for delivery in the same fashion.
it is intended that these projects will be delivered as six distinct project bundles, Project Nore, Project Boyne, Project Dargle, Project Lee, Project Liffey and Project Shannon.
