In the latest Mayor's Decision List, there's this item -
1. To seek a single quote from Associated Newspapers Ltd for the provision of bulk drop delivery and distribution services for the Londoner in London Underground ticket halls and bus depots.
2. A waiver from the contracts code requiring five quotes for an estimated contract value in excess of £25,000 in relation to the above procurement.
The estimated total cost of this contract is £26,910 and will be met from the 2007/08 Londoner budget subject to the annual budget process for 2007/08.
Can you please state -
1. How many copies of The Londoner are involved, and over how long? 2. Which stations are involved? 3. What is the frequency of the drops? 4. Why was the waiver necessary?
