Market Engagement
We would like, at this stage prior to commencing formal procurement, to seek input from the market as to what the appetite is for undertaking this service and to allow an opportunity to discuss options for the delivery of future provision.
Some of the issues we are seeking input on include:
• contract length
• the state of the market
• charity payments

The Authority intends to hold an open information session for all interested organisations as individual scheduled meetings via Microsoft Teams.
A questionnaire will be issued to all interested organisations prior to the individual meetings and will be discussed with all interested parties in a set format. All discussions will be noted, any commercially sensitive information will be kept confidential.
