Dear Madam,


Freedom of Information Request Procurement of Contractors and Construction
Consultancy Services


In response to your email dated 15 June 2010, I would reply as follows:


1          Ceredigion procures Engineering Construction Consultancy
Services either through it's our own 'in-house' Engineering Consultancy or
through a single provider Engineering Consultancy Framework.

            Ceredigion procures Building Construction Consultancy Services
through it's our own 'in-house' Buildings and Property Consultancy.


2          Ceredigion maintains an approved list of Building and
Engineering contractors for different types of work and cost bands.
Contracts are awarded following a competitive tender between a select list
of 6 contractors chosen in rotation from the appropriate approved list


3a        There are currently no Engineering Consultancy Services or
Property Consultancy Services frameworks in place in Ceredigion. The
previous Engineering framework finished on the 31st January 2010.

            Ceredigion is looking at using a joint Property Consultancy
Services framework for contractors for £2m-£100m schemes with Powys County
Council. Ceredigion and Powys are also investigating the possibility of
using the OGC Framework for Property Consultancy Services


3b        Ceredigion, Powys and Gwynedd County Councils are in the process
of setting up a joint single provider Engineering Consultancy Services
(ECS) framework for the three Councils and are also in the process of
setting up a joint Workshare Property Consultancy Services for the three


3c        It is expected that the new ECS framework will start on the 1st
July 2010 and last for a period of 3 years. There is no start date for the
OGC Framework for Property Consultancy, as the project is not yet


3d        The agreement allows for a possible extension of 1 year for

            Not applicable for Property Consultancy Services.


3e        The person who will be responsible for managing the new
Engineering Consultancy Services framework in Ceredigion is Mr. Alun
Davies, email contact details. [1][email address]

           Property Consultancy Services frameworks queries should also be
addressed to [2][email address] as there is currently no specific
allocation of this task to an individual.


If you have any complaints, please write to the Assistant Chief Executive
- Legal Services, Ceredigion County Council, Penmorfa, Aberaeron,
Ceredigion SA46 OPA.  If this fails to resolve the matter to your
satisfaction, you have the right to apply to the Information Commissioner.
