Dear Mr. Griffiths,

Relating to Freedom of Information (FOI) Act request reference:
FOI/4115/8/20/04/2010

In relation to your recent FOI requests, I am responding to all
requests to Leeds City Council and the Leeds ALMO (Arms Length
Management Organisations) Homes Communities that received the same
enquiry regarding construction consultancy services and
construction contractors.

Construction consultancy services are procured on a needs only
basis. We procure by utilising a shared procurement system,
scms.alito.co.uk, where all our requirements are advertised. This
portal allows organisations to register their company details and
receive alerts as and when interested or associated projects become
available. The system allows for documents to be downloaded,
completed and uploaded back to the system. The system also allows
for correspondence and communication through out the tender
process. The portal is used for all procurement activity (over a
certain value) across the Council and includes construction
consultancy services and construction contractors. This system can
also be utilised to identify contracts awarded.

To keep abreast of any future opportunities that may present
themselves, please feel free to register – for free – on our
e-tendering website, called the supplier and contract management
system (scms.alito.co.uk).

There is no current framework for construction consultancy
services.

Construction contractors are procured via the previously mentioned
SCMS system either by ‘open’ advert on the system requesting
organisations to express their interest, or via the Councils own
Approved List. The Approved List is open to all organisations and
can be applied for via the SCMS system. Organisations are selected
on a rotational basis, and is utilised where no existing contracts
exist or where the requirement is for a ‘one-off’ project where
pre-vetted organisations are invited to submit their proposals in
response to the requirements of the project.

Attached is a list of contracts related to the housing construction
sector and contains details as listed within your enquiry. If you
have any queries regarding this information, please contact me on
0113 247 8491, or in my absence please contact Peter Leighton-Jones
on 0113 395 1758. Please remember to quote the reference number
given in any future communications.

I hope the information provided is sufficient to meet your needs
but if you have any queries regarding this email please contact me
on 0113 247 8491. Please remember to quote the reference number
given in any future communications. If you are unhappy with the
service you have received in relation to your request and wish to
make a complaint or request a review of our decision, you should
write to: FREEPOST RLZR-ELTV-RUEH, Leeds City Council, PO Box 657,
Leeds, LS1 9BS or use the online form under complaints and
compliments to Leeds City Council on the external internet site.

If you are not content with the outcome of your complaint, you may
apply directly to the Information Commissioner for a decision.
Generally, the ICO cannot make a decision unless you have exhausted
the complaints procedure provided by the council. The Information
Commissioner can be contacted at: The Information Commissioner’s
Office, Wycliffe House, Water Lane, Wilmslow, Cheshire SK9 5AF.
