Decision type: Key

Decision status: For Determination

Notice of proposed decision first published: 30/04/2018

Anticipated restriction: Part exempt  - View reasons

Explanation of anticipated restriction:
The contract award will contain commercially sensitive information, both in respect of costs and named bus operators. The award of contracts may result in a transfer of service(s) to an alternative operator where a cheaper bid has been submitted, and therefore bus operators will need to be advised of the outcome prior to the information being in the public realm. The outcome may also result in TUPE implications which would impact on individual bus drivers.

Decision due: Not before 5 June 2018 by Cabinet
