For the establishment of panels of fishing vessels for Landing Obligation simulation studies

Bord Iascaigh Mhara - Irish Sea Fisheries Board ( BIM ) | Published May 27, 2015  -  Deadline June 10, 2015
34513100, 34513550

BIM, established under the Sea Fisheries Act 1952, is the Irish State agency responsible for developing the Irish seafood industry. Our mission is to develop the Irish seafood sector by adding value, driving growth, increasing competitiveness and creating jobs. A key element of the newly reformed Common Fisheries Policy is the progressive elimination of discards in all EU fisheries through the introduction of a Landing Obligation (LO). The landing obligation will introduce a number of challenges to the Irish fleet particularly in the demersal mixed fisheries fleet segment. The impacts of the landing obligation are difficult to predict, but are likely to be metier and business specific. Key challenges will include requirements to land non-marketable undersize or over quota fish, cessation of fishing activity once the quota for the first individual TAC species is exhausted and costs associated with handling and disposal of non-marketable fish. In order to assess potential impacts, BIM and the Marine Institute intend carrying out trials to simulate the full introduction of the LO. BIM now wishes to appoint panels of suitably qualified vessels to assist in this work on full charter basis. Candidates are required to provide information on their vessels and meet minimum criteria in relation to their suitability to participate in LO. As specific trials arise, a mini competition based on price, will be run between successful Candidates. Commencing in June 2015, the duration of the panel(s) will be a maximum of three years and applications to participate in these studies can be submitted at any time during this period.

The CER changed its name to the CRU in 2017 to better reflect the expanded powers and functions of the organisation. The CRU has a wide range of economic, customer protection and safety responsibilities in energy and water. The CRU’s mission is to regulate water, energy and energy safety in the public interest. The work of the CRU impacts every Irish home and business, by ensuring safe, secure and sustainable energy and water supplies at a reasonable cost. The sectors we regulate underpin Irish economic competitiveness, investment and growth, while also contributing to our international obligations to address climate change. The CRU is guided by six key strategic goals which are that the short and long run interests of the public are protected by ensuring: • energy and gas are supplied safely • the lights stay on • the gas continues to flow • a reliable supply of clean water and efficient treatment of wastewater • consumer prices for energy and water are fair and reasonable • regulation is best international practice Further information on the CRU’s role and relevant legislation can be found on the CRU’s website at The Services comprise of the development of an overall communications strategy and event identity to deliver effective consumer engagement with the rebranded name of the CER/CRU and awareness of the benefits of utilising its energy services across safety, retail and customer care functions.

Addressing the Skills Needs Arising from the Potential Trade Implications of Brexit

Department of Jobs, Enterprise and Innovation | Published October 24, 2017  -  Deadline November 14, 2017

The Department of Business, Enterprise and Innovation (DBEI) is commissioning concise pieces of research and consultancy work, to assist in the development of a study on “Addressing the Skills Needs arising from the Potential Trade Implications of Brexit”. The Expert Group on Future Skills Needs, whose secretariat is hosted in DBEI, will be the main client. The study will seek to identify the skills needs that would be required for Irish based enterprise to mitigate and/or circumvent the impacts of a WTO/Hard Brexit scenario on Irish goods trade, and develop a suite of recommendations that can be drawn upon to meet this objective. Both export and import goods trade will be examined. It will focus on qualifications, skillsets, competencies and workforce roles relevant to: - The diversification of goods trade (i.e. those relevant to international selling and sourcing) at enterprise level; and - The movement of goods trade across international borders (trade facilitation), at both specified enterprise sector level and in the wider Freight Transport, Distribution and Logistics (FTDL)sector The successful tenderer will undertake a concise literature review, a research exercise conducted through structured surveys and workshops with companies, organisations and stakeholders (focused on trade diversification and facilitation), and a demand scenario for the FTDL sector- all focused on the impact of a Hard Brexit scenario on the demand/supply of the associated skillsets. DBEI will undertake a review of two earlier EGFSN reports on the associated skillsets under study, an international review of actions to develop and attract these skillsets, and an assessment of their current and planned supply. The tenderer will be required to integrate the findings from all these elements into a report containing recommendations aimed at addressing the identified skills needs. The project will commence in early December 2017, with the final report due end-February 2018.
