NI Water calls firms to float some ideas

By David Elliott

Northern Ireland Water is holding an information day for building contractors interested in bidding for a £100m water and sewerage networks service contract.

The event will be held on Thursday February 28 and is designed to enable companies to find out more about the scope of the contract and meet the NI Water staff involved in the procurement process and who manage the current contract.

Sara Venning, NI Water's director of customer service delivery, said: "The winning bidder of the contract will provide a range of water and sewerage services, including sewer and watermain repairs and maintenance, clearing of sewer blockages, leakage repairs and minor water and sewerage infrastructure improvements.

"We are looking for a company which not only will enable us to continue our focus on cost efficiency and value for money but will also put the needs of our customer at the centre of everything they do."

Lewis Murray, senior category manager and organiser of the information day, encouraged contractors to attend.

"The information day is an ideal opportunity for companies to come along and see what is involved in applying for and managing such a large scale contract.

"The day will consist of presentations from the NI Water team who manage the contract and those who will be managing the tender process."
