The Transport & Engineering Division is responsible for managing the various engineering construction related Framework contracts on behalf of the Authority. There are separate arrangements for non engineering Frameworks which are managed by Property Services.


These Framework contracts allow the engagement of external Consultants for all relevant work primarily due to the in house Engineering Design section not having the specific specialist skills available. Work is undertaken for all Departments and a wide range of specialist skills are employed. It would not be cost effective to retain the majority of these skills within the in house teams.
