Contract award and management of Project Stratum

Northern Ireland’s Comptroller and Auditor General has today (14 December 2021) published a report on Project Stratum, the £165 million project which is NI’s largest publicly funded investment in broadband infrastructure to date. It finds that, while there are many things to be commended in how the Project Stratum contract has been awarded and will be managed, there are concerns around the number of properties that will be covered by the project, and the potential for some premises to have been commercially viable without subsidy.
