A notice that you have registered an interest in has been cancelled. The

Notice ID: JUN120916
Title: Grant Management Information System
Authority: Enterprise Ireland
The tender process for procurement of a Grant Management Information System for the County Enterprise Boards has been cancelled. We delayed the procurement process in September 2009 in the expectation that it would proceed this year. We apologise to prospective suppliers, but unfortunately we are unable to proceed pending a decision on the future of the County
Enterprise Boards network.
This may reflect nothing more than the ongoing general uncertainty around a lot of Government programs but it would be useful to have that clarified - with many unemployed people turning to CEB's at present for support in moving towards self-employment that overhanging threat could be counter productive.
