Edinburgh councillors vote to carry out service improvements in-house

Councillors in Edinburgh today voted to terminate the procurement process without award of any contract for the Integrated Facilities Management and Corporate and Transactional workstreams.

Officers will now focus on implementing a programme of improvement based on the vision set out in the Council's internal improvement plans for both areas.

The proposals were contained in Integrated Facilities Management and Corporate and Transactional Service reports published by the Council on Friday 13 January.

Sue Bruce, Chief Executive, said: "We now have clear council decisions on both workstreams and I look forward to working with the staff and trades unions representatives to deliver the improvements to which we have all now committed."

Press release of the proposals issued on 13 January.
