The Eagle has landed in Lincolnshire
Published: 14 June, 2013
Authorities in Lincolnshire have come together for the first time to jointly procure refuse collection vehicles in association with members of the York and North Yorkshire Waste Partnership. They have selected Dennis Eagle as the main supplier for refuse collection fleets as part of a contract that runs until April 2017.
The collaboration is expected to result in the delivery of more than 100 vehicles over the next four years. Thirty seven have been ordered to date, including seven for Boston, 16 for East Lindsey, two for West Lindsey and six for South Kesteven.
Carl Miller, Procurement and Contracts Officer for Procurement Lincolnshire, comments: ‘Many of our councils already have Dennis Eagle vehicles in their fleets, but this is the first time we have standardised and aggregated our requirements under a common acquisition method with a single supplier. Dennis Eagle was appointed following a competitive tender process. This was evaluated on quality and value, taking into consideration whole life as well as upfront costs.'
