Subject: Appendix A to Annex 23 – ASC contract ‘AMOUNTS CLAIMED FROM THIRD PARTIES’
Re: Area 9
I am concerned that your contractor has, from the commencement of the contact (01/07/2014) been permitted by Highways England to act contrary to the contract and overcharge third parties. It appears drivers, fleets and insurers are owed £millions, that this is a scandal. The issue continues, is current.
I await your response to the 3 questions below
1. confirm that the manner in which Third Parties (drivers, fleets and insurers) are to be charged by your contractors is as per Appendix A to Annex 23 (or similar) where this exists
2. explain why, in Area 9, where Appendix A to Annex 23 operates, your contractor has not complied with the Appendix since the inception of the contract
3. confirm that the contractor will now be asked to comply with the contract or explain why this is not to occur.
This email subsequently gave rise to a meeting with the Authority, the KPMG enquiry )project Verde) and inaction! Read more here
