Warrington Borough Council has appointed Jacobs to continue working in partnership to collect unpaid Council Tax, Business Rates and all corporate debt outstanding to the council.
The contract has been granted for up to a 4 year period and follows a very robust open market procurement exercise reducing the number of places available to suppliers on the new contract from 4 to 2 approved Enforcement Agencies.
The procurement process was undertaken under the established Rotherham Framework consisting of 10 approved enforcement agencies.
Alyn Lewis, Client Development Director at Jacobs said “We are extremely delighted to have been appointed by Warrington Borough Council to continue working in partnership. We are especially pleased to be in the top two providers selected and to keep our place on the new contract. This appointment is testimony to our range of quality and innovative services based on high collection performance, excellent customer service and market leading technology promoting automation and efficiency
that adds value to both the council and customers of Warrington”.
Bethan Lewis, Head of Public Sector Procurement at Jacobs further commented “The Rotherham Framework is available at no cost to public authorities to utilise and significantly reduce the work involved in undertaking a tender exercise. The framework was updated and renewed in 2017 and is fit for purpose for both Local Taxation and Parking PCN enforcement requirements. A number of authorities have utilised the framework by undertaking a further mini competition through either written submission and/or formal presentation only. For more information on the framework and how it can save you administration time and costs please contact me direct”.
