‘Keep consultancy work flowing’

01 May 2020

Public authorities have been urged to keep a steady flow of transport consultancy opportunities coming forward to help the sector through the Covid-19 pandemic. Writing on Linked-in, David Young, a director at transport consultant SCP, said there had been a “significant drop-off” in the number of tender notices advertised on the OJEU [Official Journal of the European Union] portal. “During Covid-19 it is essential that we keep people and businesses working wherever possible. This avoids jobs at risk and furlough costs to the taxpayer. Local government needs to continue to put opportunities out to the market and barriers, like funding confidence and lack of resources, need to be addressed.”
