Brent Council Executive will be deciding whether to award the Public Realm contract to Veolia at their meeting this Monday October 14th 7pm Brent Civic Centre.
Veolia is the only company left in the bidding process and officers are recommending that they be given the contract. This follows the officers’ decision not to allow Enterprise, the other bidder, additional time to formulate their bid.
We will be arguing in a speech to the Executive that they should reject the officers’ recommendation and instead extend the current contract for one year and then open up a new procurement process.
The new procurement process should include strong ethical conditions and the Council should consider separating the parks maintenance from the waste element. This would encourage companies that specialise in waste and recycling only to make bids and allow for an in-house bid for parks maintenance.
PLEASE COME ALONG AND ATTEND THE EXECUTIVE ON MONDAY TO DEMONSTRATE YOUR SUPPORT FOR THIS DEMAND
