The most effective mechanism for incorporating competition in government is competitive contracting (or competitive tendering). A wealth of experience has been reported around the world on the savings both the direct savings from competitively contracted services and the "ripple effect" savings from the influence of competition on internal. compulsory competitive tendering.

Since the abolition of compulsory competitive tendering (CCT), an authority is not obliged to expose internal services to competition, unless it decided to do so based on the principles of best value. Therefore, if the investigation reveals in-house provision provides best value, there is no need for a tender process at all. Property is a key resource for the delivery of public services and needs to be managed well. The previous Conservative government had a conviction that better value public services could be delivered by harnessing private sector expertise and, since the late s, embarked on an unprecedented level of competitive tendering. This procurement method had extended to the appointment of property.
This has achieved the necessary quality of service while giving cost savings to the Council. 1 Introduction The Background to Compulsory Competitive Tendering For a decade there have been government policies in the United Kingdom which have sought to introduce more competition into the provision of local control government services. In, the Secretary of State for the Environment announced that compulsory competitive tendering (CCT) was to be extended to a range of local authority professional and corporate services. In February proposals for the implementation of CCT for professional construction-related and property services were announced (DOE, ).

Competitive tendering (bidding) is a widely used procurement method within government agencies and private sector organisations.

Competitive tendering is a system introduced in the UK during the s to force publicly run organisations to request bids from a number of different firms for contracts to supply goods or services.
The aim was to drive costs down and improve the efficiency of state funded organisations, including central and local government departments. At the introduction of the compulsory competitive tendering (CCT) legislation in the Victorian parliament inthe minister confidently stated `Quality will rise while costs will fall'.
So there we had it, the vision splendid, the promise of market testing to drive efficiency and effectiveness across the local government sector. The Conservative Government's Local Government Act extended compulsory tendering to a wide range of local authority services mainly supplied in the past by public departments in-house.
This article reviews why the legislation was introduced; considers the evidence on efficiency savings from competitive tendering; details the services Cited by: The paper applies institutional theory to analyse the changing role of accounting and contracting in UK local government as the compulsory competitive tendering (CCT) regime was extended to white‐collar activities such as housing management, finance, legal services and information technology.
This article examines the challenge to the Governments policy of market testing represented by the European Union's Acquired Rights Directive.
The aim of the Directive, expressed in UK legislation through the Transfer of Undertakings (Protection of Employment) Regulationsis to safeguard jobs, terms and union recognition under a new employer. During the s, the number of transfers of undertakings has doubled every three years at EU level, accounting for 40 per cent of the global number of business transfers.
Yet limited research has been carried out to investigate how terms and conditions of employment and other work-related experience may have changed for the workers who have been transferred from the transferor. Qualitative data from a sample of urban UK councils is used to present a longitudinal analysis of the problems of maintaining service quality in local government parks and open spaces.
Service quality has evolved through several distinct reform eras in parks management: traditional management (pre‐), compulsory competitive tendering (‐), and best value.
