The local authorities wish to appoint a single provider framework to last for three years, with an option of a one-year extension.
The estimated value of the contract ranges between £780,000 and £1,200,000. LGSS explains in the tender documents that the contract's value is difficult to estimate, partly because it is likely that the local authorities will be selling off property during the contract lifetime.
