Department of Transport (Ireland) – PSO Lifeline Routes

AviaSolutions supported the Irish Department of Transport in the tendering process for six Public Service Obligation (PSO) routes to Dublin.

This involved:

  • Advice on the design of the tender process to maximise competition and reduce subvention required.
  • Advice on the development of the evaluation framework for tenders.
  • Participation on the evaluation panel selecting successful tenders, with specific responsibility in the area of route costs and level of service.

The PSO tender process was carried out efficiently and on time, with government subvention levels substantially lower than was historically the case.
