Background Information: The IAA agrees the principle by which the Cambridgeshire Authorities will work together to govern and manage the contract and a cost sharing arrangement, based on the outcome of the procurement process. The intention is to level out variability of operating costs in this round of procurement and present one fixed fee that is acceptable to RECAP, thereby mimicking the existing contract arrangement.
