Walsall MBC and Canterbury City Council have been found guilty of anti-competitive behaviour. The DoE has asked them to relet certain contracts.

Both councils must have the new arrangements in place by 1 April 1996 following DoE intervention this week, and must seek its permission if they wish to reaward the work in question in-house.

Walsall must retender the contract for the repair and maintenance of vehicles and plant. The DoE said the tender documentation contained default procedures which were 'arbitrary in construction and penal in intent', and did not include a clearly defined process for dealing with disputes.

Canterbury must retender its street cleansing contract. The DoE said it failed to clarify the position of the lowest tenderer with regard to the transfer of undertakings regulations before rejecting its bid.
