As part of a programme-wide initiative with Enterprise Ireland, a series of “Meet the Buyer” events are held around the country offering small and medium-sized enterprises within the construction sector the opportunity to meet directly with the senior buyers within NDFA managed programmes.
An “enterprise zone” with support offered by local and county Enterprise Boards and by Intreo (the employment service of the Department of Social Protection) has been a key feature at these events.
Enterprise Ireland, in association with the NDFA and The Department of Further and Higher Education, Research, Innovation & Science and the Higher Education Authority organised two ‘Meet the Buyer’ events for the Higher Education PPP - Bundle 1:
These events offered companies of all sizes the opportunity to meet with the selected construction contractor JJ Rhatigan & Company & and
facilities management provider Sodexo Ireland Ltd., and the chance to pitch for business. Construction, engineering, mechanical and electrical companies, as well as companies in related sectors, were invited to attend.
