THE APHA announced on January 27 that it had awarded two contracts for the supply of TB testing and other Official Veterinarian (OV) services in Wales. However, it said, it was not yet in a position to award contracts in England as an unsuccessful tenderer had issued legal proceedings. It said the matter was currently being addressed and remained confidential.
From April 1 this year, all new TB testing and other OV work in Wales will be undertaken by two regional Delivery Partners. Menter a Busnes has been awarded the contract for services in the Wales North region, while Iechyd Da (Gwledig) will deliver services in the Wales South region. The contracts are for a three-year period, with the option of extending them for up to a further two years.
