It'll reveal whether the tendering process can continue

A report into the future of the National Broadband Plan is being published today.

It'll reveal whether or not the tendering process for the National Broadband Plan can continue, after serious questions were raised about it.

Cabinet ministers will see the report before it's released to the public.

The report has been examining whether meetings between former Communications Minister Denis Naughten and businessman David McCourt undermined the process.

Mr McCourt is heavily involved in the last remaining consortium bidding for the contract to roll-out broadband across the country.

The Government received the report last week and has spent time contacting the parties named in it, and redacting parts considered commercially sensitive.

Leaks in the last week have suggested the report will find that the process hasn't been undermined.

The report should also outline if there'll be any delay in the project and how it moves forward.
