Is the council just looking for the cheapest option?

It is extremely rare for a tender to be evaluated on price alone. The method used for evaluating tenders is described as “most economically advantageous tender” which means that a mixture of quality and price criteria would be used to evaluate all responses.  These criteria are weighted, dependant on their importance; price is quite often less than 50% of any evaluation.
