This consultation ran from to
The consultation relates to the bidding process through which the transformation funds for fire and rescue authorities will be administered.
On 26 June 2013, the government’s spending round document announced £75 million of funds for 2015 to 2016 (£30 million of revenue and £45 million of capital), will be made available to the fire and rescue sector on a bid-for basis to support transformational change and deliver further efficiencies.
This consultation is on the draft bidding process through which these funds will be administered.
The consultation aims to both familiarise fire and rescue authorities with the single bidding process being developed for these 2 funds (so that authorities will know what to expect) and to gather opinion and feedback to make sure the bidding process operates as smoothly and effectively as possible. We want to make sure the funds deliver the types of transformative change identified by the government in its spending round document.
