WHITE COLLAR CCT POSTPONED FOR SCOTLAND

The extension of compulsory competitive tendering to white collar services in Scotland will be phased in after local government reorganisation, the government announced this week. Scottish local government minister Allan Stewart said his announcement was proof that the government was prepared to listen to sensible representations from councils, 'despite the Convention of Scottish Local Authorities' unhelpful attitude towards reform'. One third of professional service CCT contracts should be let by October 1997, he said, with a further third by January 1998 and the remainder by April 1998.

Mr Stewart also announced the requirement to go out to tender on manual services will be waived from April 1995 when shadow councils are set up. The requirement would be phased back between July 1997 and January 1998.
