MP’s warn government on need to control PFI contracts

by simongalton on 2 September, 2008

The BBC have reported on a recent publication by a parliamentary select committee which states that the government needs to provide more support in the monitoring and management of PFI contracts to prevent costs spiralling: http://news.bbc.co.uk/1/hi/uk_politics/7592179.stm

The Liberal Democrat group welcomes this report and hopes that it will encourage Local Authorities to ensure that they have robust measures in place to manage projects run alongside the private sector. This is particularly important considering the current County Council project looking in to PFI funding for a new waste treatment plant and the necessary investment of resources that this will entail.
