|RFT Title: 166977:1 Riparian works along the bank of the Arney River - SUSPENDED
||The Tender ‘Riparian Works along the bank of the Arney River – #166977:1’ will be suspended given the current situation with Covid-19.
This action has been taken due to a number of considerations
• To accommodate supplier-side disruptions such as remote working, lack of access to IT, ill health, family circumstances, travel restrictions etc.
• Tendering requirements that demand the physical presence of staff (i.e. Site visits)
• Possible disruptions in supply-chain
• Restrictions on access to farm land and potential impact on landowners regarding social distancing
Inland Fisheries Ireland intend to suspend the process for a period of time(e.g. 1-2 month), the duration being dependant on advice and direction from the Irish government and Northern Irish Assembly and from their medical advisors .The current tender will be removed immediately and re-advertised in the coming weeks/months and the procedure will be continued in line with previous plans.
As you know this is a very fast moving issue and we will aim to update interested parties as the situation changes. We apologise to all interested parties for any inconvenience caused.
