RE: Freedom of Information Request: Procurement Arrangements

I refer to your "Freedom of Information" request of 17^th June 2010
regarding Thurrock Thames Gateway Development Corporation's (the
Corporation) procurement arrangements in connection with the Contractors
and Construction Consultancy Services.

As a NDPB (Non-Departmental Public Body) the Corporation has an
established procurement policy this dictates the following requirement

. That it conforms both to relevant Treasury and Office of
Government Commerce (OGC) guidance (which can be found at
[1]http://www.ogc.gov.uk/) and which takes account of all relevant EU
legislation.

o The Corporation has access to framework arrangements that have been
established by OGC
[2]http://www.ogc.gov.uk/contractsdatabase/... and HCA
[3]http://www.homesandcommunities.co.uk/con.... It is
the Corporation's policy that where framework/panels exist, (as these
agreements have already been EU tendered), that these are the prime
source for procurement. Only in exceptional circumstances will the
Corporation evoke a separate procurement exercise.

Covering the questions you raised:

1. The Corporation's procurement policy, an extract of which I have
included above ensures that the services you have listed in your
letter are procured using framework contracts (either OGC or HCA).
2. As 1 above.
3. We do not use our own frameworks

I hope the information supplied is what you require. Should you require
further

assistance please do not hesitate to contact me by email

[4][email address].

Yours sincerely
