The directing municipality of Haarlem had for the following task:
‘To set up a renewed collaboration with the market for the management and maintenance of the total public space’.
This allowed the municipality to concentrate on its guiding role and therefore save costs.
Aratis wrote the best approach to this question and then prepared the necessary contracts and guided the tender. This has ultimately led to 12 UAV-GC contracts, 6 of which are tendered and 6 are inexpended. By choosing a task budget, tenders could not be distinguished by price, but only by quality.
This innovative way of contracting is interesting for many municipalities, because the quality of services has improved while the costs have been lowered.
