Definitive awards in most districts

Thursday 23 November 2006 (update)
On 1 November last, the deadline for submitting appeals against provisional awarding decisions by Stichting Incident Management Nederland passed. Because no appeal was submitted in most districts against the provisional decisions, Stichting Incident Management Nederland is able to announce definitive awards in these districts of a recovery agreement for the period 1 April 2007 through to 31 March 2010.

The list below shows the districts in which an appeal HAS been issued or where the provisional decision could be influenced by the result of an appeal procedure in another district (marked with red background). In these districts, a definitive awarding decision will have to wait until the judgement by the Appeals Committee (at the latest 1 February 2007). In all districts in which no appeal has been submitted (marked with a blue background), definitive awarding took place on 1 November last. Over the coming weeks, Stichting Incident Management Nederland will be sending an agreement to the companies in question for each awarded district.

The Stichting would like to ask all companies that have been definitively awarded one or more districts to start installing as quickly as possible the GPS equipment (Momo) required for implementation of the contract. In that connection, please contact EAL (055 - 539 49 00, ask for Jimco Tuinenga or Dianne Schubert). The GPRS subscription from KPN can be requested via the EAL order form.

Possibly unnecessarily, Stichting Incident Management Nederland would once again inform all parties involved of the fact that the compensation scheme from Rijkswaterstaat for covering the costs of purchase and installation of Momos only applies to vehicles of which the registration was already listed on the certificate submitted with the bid for participation in the tender procedure.

It is also important to note that the agreement specifies that recovery operations may only be carried out by vehicles complying with all requirements imposed by Stichting Incident Management Nederland. This means that you must keep us informed of any changes to your certified vehicle fleet. This is only possible by submitting a copy of an altered certificate on which the changed list of vehicle registrations of certified vehicles appears. It goes without saying that approval of these vehicles is only possible if they are equipped with a correctly functioning Momo. Momos in vehicles added at a later stage to the vehicle fleet, as already stated, must be purchased and installed for your own account.
