THE LEGAL implications of competitive tendering are among the issues to be discussed at a series of seminars organised by the Department of the Environment.
Seven events have been arranged across the country to explain the legislative and political context of the contracting out drive. Environment minister Sir Paul Beresford said the seminars will include speakers from his department, business and local authorities.
Under CCT legislation local authorities must submit 45 per cent of their legal work for competitive tendering.
Beresford said: "The success of CCT is now firmly established. It has allowed councils to save money and provide improved services across a range of areas such as waste management and catering."
He added that it can only work if all contractors involved are fully aware of what the process involves.
