Councils’ joint procurement programme awards NSL new contract

Following a joint procurement programme, Bolton Council and Rochdale Council have confirmed NSL as the successful bidder for a comprehensive range of civil enforcement activities. The company has delivered successful enforcement services in both towns for more than a decade, but the new five year contract will be managed under one contract and will include a number of new services when it starts in January 2017.

“We’re absolutely delighted to be continuing our long and productive partnership with both Councils,” says NSL’s Account Director, Andy Bradley. “Securing the new contract is a credit to the terrific work of the operations team – in particular, Rick Jones and Tony Hunt – which has established such a close relationship with both authorities. The joint procurement exercise demonstrates the forward-thinking approach of both Councils and will enable us to build on our achievements to date with a progressive range of front line enforcement and support services.”

The new £5 million, five year contract will see NSL providing all Civil Enforcement Officers (CEOs) for on and off-street civil parking enforcement as well as mobile CCTV enforcement that capitalises on Automatic Number Plate Recognition (ANPR). The company will be responsible for providing all handheld computers and software, stationery, uniforms and communication devices for the team of CEOs. It will also provide frontline maintenance of Pay and Display equipment and cash collection and reconciliation in Rochdale.
