The two Authorities work in partnership to produce the term maintenance and, installation of traffic control and information systems for the entire geographical county of Dorset. Whilst the successful contractor will be awarded separate contracts with each of the respective named authorities, a fundamental requirement of the way in which the two contracts are to be delivered is through continuation of the existing close co-operation.
