DCC/NPS Project Agreement

Dear Mr Bradshaw

Please see the attached Project Agreement between Norfolk Property Service (NPS) and the Devon County Council (DCC).

I am of the opinion that the attached document is not a legal document and in breach of EU contract law. It has been pushed through under Teckal and in my opinion is nothing but a scam and a tool to assist the passage of fraud and theft of public funds and in particular PFI capital funds.

No wonder the DCC have placed me on a lifetime email ban and refused to release this document under the FOIA 2000.

This Project Agreement is for a fifteen (15) year period to provide multi disciplinary property consultants. A very impressive title indeed.

However, the Project Agreement does not have any independent transparency, accountability or security and there are no fiscal ringfences.

At this juncture, Carrillion are the maintenance contractors for the Devon Schools and NPS are the glorified architects.

The service specification runs from 1st April 07 (April Fool's joke) to 31st Jan 08. Therefore, this contract agreement has expired.

The service agreement calls or a 5 year review from the DCC, which has not been carried out.

This agreement refers to The Asset Management Plan which at best is a joke and at worst, a design to deceive. The Project Asset Management Plan at the DCC and in particular the Devon Schools is non-existent.

I call upon my MP to write to the Minister of Education and the Treasury Minister to call for a public Iiquiry into the DCC/NPS Project Agreement as attached.

I have reason to believe this scam is active nationwide and not just isolated to Devon.

For your urgent action and files.

Yours sincerely

Alan M Dransfield
