Bournemouth Borough Council required a term contract partner to provide drainage and water-related services in support of three major areas of operation, Highways, Seafront Services, and Housing.
Bournemouth Borough Council is a Unitary Authority who have to balance a service provision to the tenants of the Borough against a budget. In order to deliver an effective service, it is sometimes better to contract in services through specialist suppliers to minimise costs and overheads but still maintaining efficient deliverable.
