FOI Request - Debt Collection, Recovery and Enforcement Services
I am writing to you under the Freedom of Information Act 2000 to request the following information from Moray Council:
1. Beyond those tenders currently in the public domain, what opportunities are currently in your procurement pipeline in relation to debt collection, recovery, and enforcement services, specifically in the following areas:
o Penalty Charge Notices issued for parking infringements
o Council tax arrears
o Non-domestic rates paid by local businesses
o Sundry debt arrears
o Low Emission Zone/Clean Air Zone/Congestion Zone non-compliance
o Bus lane violations
o Moving traffic offences
o Speed enforcement
o Free flow tolling
o Road pricing (including charges to enter bridges and tunnels)
2. For those opportunities which are currently in the pipeline, what is the estimated contract value for each individual pipeline opportunity (given in £1000s of pounds)?
3. For those opportunities currently in the pipeline, can you provide an expected timetable for the future tendering of those opportunities (please provide the timeline on a month-by-month basis or describe, in months, the estimated tender process length)?
The information on debt collection contracts is published in the Moray Council's contract register which will tell you when the contract is expiring. Any procurement would start before the contract expires. All debt collection is covered by the same contract. This information is therefore exempt under section 25 of the Freedom of Information (Scotland) Act 2002, information otherwise accessible.
