Let’s look at the budget from a procurement point of view. Next year the Public Capital Programme will be at a record level at over €10 billion; the commercial semi-state sector will procure at least €8 billion; and Ireland’s 3,000+ contracting authorities will tender for some €15 billion+ in supplies and services. Ireland’s procurement market has grown to €33 billion. Wow. Busy times ahead for buyers and suppliers.
