In October 2017 and again in January 2019 Birmingham City Council carried out soft market testing exercises with the waste market to ensure that the implementation of our proposed procurement strategy would deliver robust competition and achieve value for money outcomes for the Council.
Following these earlier exercises the Council has developed its future procurement strategy and is currently undertaking a range of procurement packages in support of the strategy agreed by the Councils Cabinet committee on the 13th February 2018. This report entitled “Procurement Strategy for Waste Management Services in support of the Waste Strategy Framework 2017 -2040” is also publically available and can be found here.
Birmingham City Council now invites interested parties to further engage with us so that we may capture the thoughts and views of the waste market about aspects of the Council’s Procurement Strategy for:
• the processing of a range of recyclable materials and other associated services.
