The Government Procurement Service has issued its Intention to Award in the hotly contested central government travel management tender, Public Sector Travel has learned.
A source close to the negotiations said that HRG has been successful in its bid for the international lot, which includes the MOD and Foreign and Commonwealth Office. The other lot, covering those central government departments with mainly domestic travel requirements, has been won by Yorkshire-based Redfern Travel.
The tender now enters the so-called ‘Alcatel’ period, ten days of standstill in which unsuccessful bidders, such as Carlson Wagonlit and Expotel which both have a significant amount of government business, can challenge the intention to award.
