Summary of Reason(s) for Decision Taken:

Bag It Up Group subsequently declined the Authority’s offer and withdrew their Tender. The Contract was therefore offered to Salvation Army Trading Company Ltd, who accepted to take up the contract.

A competitive process was undertaken from which two bids were received these were considered as part of the formal evaluation process as set out in the procurement documents.
