The Borough of Welwyn Hatfield is a local government district in Hertfordshire and is home to over 122,000 residents.
The council went through a detailed multi-stage tender process in which every bidder was evaluated by a cross-party procurement board to ensure the chosen contractor was able to provide high-quality services at an affordable rate for the taxpayer.
