Bailiff Services

We have considered commissioning options for a range of bailiff services. These include collection in:
  • council tax
  • national non-domestic rates (NNDR)
  • benefit overpayments
  • business improvement districts (BIDs)
  • one council finance debts
  • parking services

We were looking to understand how experienced key providers in the marketplace feel these requirements might best be met and commissioning options, and to carry out a soft market testing exercise to engage in early informal dialogue with key providers.            

In December 2013 we sought interested parties to participate in the soft market testing. Participating organisations were sent a questionnaire and memorandum of information. The deadline for receiving questionnaires was Monday 16 December.

Answers provided by suppliers, and any subsequent discussions, will assist us in shaping and scoping requirements, and provide insight into the most suitable commissioning option for these services. We do not have a firm intention to award contract(s) at this stage.
