Public Sector Network Tender Alert


387098-2012: UK-London: parking services

The Council has been operating decriminalised parking enforcement since 1994. With the implementation of Part 6 of the Traffic Management Act in March 2008, this became Civil Parking Enforcement. The entire borough is designated as a Civil Enforcement Area.
The parking enforcement service (and associated services) are currently contracted out and are provided by a single service provider. This includes enforcement activities, some elements of notice processing and permit issue, the provision on a parking shop and other related activities. The Council also carries out bus lane and moving traffic enforcement through the use of CCTV, and does not clamp or remove vehicles. Currently, there are no plans to introduce clamping or removals.
The existing Contract includes the provision of a parking shop. With the growing use of web-based services, such as permit applications, this is no longer required and is therefore not included in this specification. However, this Contract will include some activities that are not part of the existing Contract, such as the provision of an I.T. system, the authorisation of suspensions, all notice processing activities and the provision of cashless parking services (currently provided under a separate arrangement).
