The contract is for a period of 5 years commencing in October 2019 and expiring in September 2024. The contract will be the principal means of service provision for DCC to meet its hire vehicle needs. It is envisaged that East Devon District Council and Dartmoor National Park Authority will use this arrangement as a route to hire vehicles. The position of the other member organisations within the Devon and Cornwall Procurement Partnership is reserved for the use of the arrangement however currently there is no commitment from these organisations as to their use of the arrangement.
