Local authorities preparing to put their housing management services out to tender were today urged to involve tenants in the process by Scottish housing minister Raymond Robertson.

Speaking at a seminar at Strathclyde University for local authorities who are currently putting their housing management out to competitive tender, he also stressed the benefits of CCT in the housing sector.

'It is important that individual tenants and tenants organisations have access to sufficient quantity and quality of information about the CCT process to enable them to play a constructive part. Information about costs and resources will be as important as that concerning standards of service and the content of contracts.

'Since the government introduced the idea of market testing for local government services, the successes of the policy have been fully demonstrated. The aim of our policy on CCT is to stimulate greater efficiency in the organisation and delivery of services and to secure better value for money for the local communities who pay for the services. But it is not just about price - CCT enhances quality as well.'
