Slough Borough Council awards contract to Qa

A one-year Corporate Consultation Contract involving a range of community consultation and engagement projects has been awarded to Qa Research as sole supplier.

Slough Borough Council assessed a number of potential suppliers and their capacity to help the authority meet its consultation obligations over the next twelve months.

The sole supplier contract includes:

  • the statutory Annual Survey
  • assistance with Budget and Council Tax surveys
  • refreshment and management of the 1500-strong Citizen’s Panel – including a postal survey on health in partnership with the local PCT
  • ad hoc research

Preparations are already underway for Annual Survey fieldwork from January 2008.

The Communities team at Qa said: “We are delighted that this important authority recognises Qa’s ability to meet all their consultation needs. We are looking forward to helping the Council deliver excellent and well-coordinated projects across diverse local communities.”
