Taxi and minibus drivers who want to carry out ad-hoc work for Northamptonshire County Council are being reminded to submit their tender bids by the deadline of midday on Monday, April 19.

The county council is implementing a new system where any company that wants to carry out ad-hoc work must sign up to the agreement in advance.

The new framework has been drawn up by the authority to control costs and improve response times to call-outs by allowing service areas to order taxis themselves and reducing the need for journey planners to negotiate with taxi operators.

Invitations to tender for the taxi framework agreement are currently available on line at our e-Tendering website.

For more information contact, by telephone: Janet Wincott on 01604 364491; Richard Madgin on 01604 364484; or Paul Meadows on 01604 364316.
