Award of Contract for Highways Core Professional Services

The supply of professional design services and client support is critical to ensuring the County Council can meet its statutory duty to maintain the highways and to ensure that, in constructing new roads, the authority takes such measures as appropriate to reduce the possibilities of accidents. The contracts awarded for these services in 2016 are due to end in 2022 and new contracts are required.

 

A competitive procurement process will be undertaken and, when concluded, the Director of Highways, Transport and Planning will be asked to award the contract for Highways Core Professional Services in accordance with the County Council’s Standing Orders on Procurement and Contracts.
