SECTION II: CANCELLATION OF PROCEDURE
Date of decision on cancellation of procedure
17th December 2018

Reason for cancellation of public procurement procedure
Prior to the opening of tenders, the termination of the procurement activity has been made necessary, as the specification lacks reference to material safety, allowing works to be delivered at lower cost, using materials that are not environmentally safe.

Re-advertisement of tender
The Herefordshire Wildlife Trust will evaluate the need for a future procurement process following a review of the tender specification and the resultant likelihood of achieving the necessary project outcomes.

If re-advertised the tender will be added to the HWT website and myTenders.co.uk
