Local Businesses To Benefit From Bangor University Scrapping Mega Contract

Bangor University had been intending to roll all of its facilities maintenance contracts into one, large multi-million pound deal, but has now changed its mind.

The higher education establishment has instead decided to leave its contracts for services such as plumbing, building maintenance, electrical and heating services separate.

North Wales Live revealed that this will come as a relief for local businesses, who were concerned that offering all these services under one contract would mean that a large, national firm would swoop in and take over.

Plaid Cymru had been campaigning against the proposed change and has welcomed the university’s decision.

Rhun ap Iorwerth, Plaid Cymru AM for Ynys Mon, told the news provider that it’s important for all large organisations to consider the impact of such decisions.

“Procurement holds so much power in terms of making our local economy stronger and organisations - be they councils, Welsh government or even universities - mustn’t think of spending decisions in isolation,” he asserted.

This isn’t the only good news for businesses in Bangor recently. North Wales Live also highlighted the announcement that a £2.16 million pot of money is to be made available to help renovate properties in the city centre and draw in more businesses.

A report last year found that almost one in five units in Bangor city centre were lying empty. The aim of this money is to help commercial property owners bring spaces back into use by carrying out renovations and improving frontages.
