Northamptonshire County Council - Highway Services Industry Day
Main contract details
Northamptonshire County Council (NCC) is holding an Industry Day in respect of future Highway Services. The Council is keen to work with a proactive partner(s) to deliver high quality and efficient services using innovation and continuous improvement.
This represents an exciting opportunity for prospective partner organisation(s) to work with two new unitary authorities, which will replace the existing 'two tier' system comprising the county council and seven borough/district councils in April 2021, in continuing to drive improvements in service delivery standards and efficiency.
Please note: this event is not an invitation to tender or a request for formal expressions of interest.
This notice is placed in order to facilitate further market engagement and update potential providers, following the soft market testing exercise, earlier this year. This notice is of an Industry Day, to provide a pre-procurement market briefing, rather than a call for competition in its own right, and therefore response does not commit respondents to bid, nor provide any process exemptions or preferential treatment to any provider registering to attend.

- Background to NCC highways network and current arrangements;
- Potential scope of future contract
- Transfer of service provision from NCC to two Unitary authorities
- Key contract elements
- Procurement process
- Planned timetable
- Question and Answer Session
