Cumbria County Council currently has contracts in place for the supply and distribution of frozen foods and fresh milk (including 189ml cartons under the school milk scheme). These contracts are available to use by a range of customers (including, but not limited to, Cumbria Care Residential Homes, Day Care Centres, Outdoor Centres and Schools). The current contracts expire on the 31 July 2014.
As per the Contract Procedure Rules we seek approval to procure which will give Corporate Procurement the authority to commence a tender process to identify suitable supplier(s) for the next 4 years.
