DES Press Release: The Department of Education and its education sector procurement hub, the Education Procurement Service (EPS), in conjunction with the Schools Procurement Unit (SPU), the Financial Support Services Unit (FSSU) and Education & Training Boards Ireland (ETBI), have established a framework of three market providers in order to provide payments solutions for schools to avail of. The payments solutions will facilitate the handling of payments from parents to schools electronically (including internet, mobile phone app and chip and pin), while continuing to allow parents that wish to make payments by cash, cheque, etc.
The framework is valid from February 6, 2018 to February 5, 2022.
The framework is currently been reviewed and we will provide an update when it is available.
