Brentwood Borough Council are currently using the 'PAE' Procurement Agency e-tendering portal to provide e-tendering services for the authority. Please provide a copy of the procurement contract award notice for this service. This contract award notice should include :
Name and full address of the contract award winner
Description of the services being provided
Contract start date
Contract expiry date
In response to your Freedom of Information request I would respond as follows:
Brentwood is a Member of the Procurement Agency for Essex (PAE), along with all other Local Authorities in Essex and some Housing Associations and the fire brigade.
Membership is free (at the present time).
The PAE does not provide an e-tendering portal and to our procurement officer’s knowledge the Council does not have a contract with any company to provide such a service.
