Web guide to Best Value on Internet


LOCAL AUTHORITIES will be encouraged to benchmark their own procurement performance under the Government's new Best Value regime by visiting a new best practice website.

Subscribers to LA Compare will be able to study the way other local authorities select the Most Economically Advantageous Tender (MEAT) under the new legislation. It is hoped that the service will help ease implementation of the system, which replaced Compulsory Competitive Tendering on 1 April.

Head of the ICE's Best Value Taskforce David Green backed the Mouchell- sponsored site which goes on line later this month.

He will also launch the ICE's own Best Value Guide on 9 May. The guide is the result of two years' work by the ICE led Best Value Taskforce

Best Value Guide, price £195. For more information call Elinor Goodchild at the ICE on (020) 7665 2223.
