It is expected that the successful partner(s)will be required to manage the mobilisation, opening and commissioning of the leisure and golf provision within Middlesbrough boundary.
The contract(s) are expected to be for 15 years. The council is minded to include the services currently provided by the Council’s Leisure and golf Services Department as part of this contract however additional facilities or services may be open to consideration as part of the competitive dialogue.
The Council considers that this is a contract for part B services under the Public Contracts Regulations 2006 (‘the Regulations’) or a service concession contract that falls outside of the scope of the Regulations.

It is expected that the Transfer of Undertakings (Protection of Employment) Regulations 2006 (‘TUPE’) will apply to the award of this contract and that staff may transfer to an incoming provider (s).
