The Contract Awards Committee of the BAI has announced its intention to invoke fast-track applications processes for a number of local sound broadcasting services, in accordance with Section 67(3) of the Broadcasting Act 2009.
The fast-track process can be invoked by the Committee when only one expression of interest, from an incumbent sound broadcasting contractor, is received following a call for expressions of interest. Such a call was made by the BAI in July of this year and no additional expressions of interest were made.
The BAI will place notifications of same on its website and in the national press during the week commencing 22nd October 2012. A guide to submissions and a Statement of Intent form will be available for interested parties. The Committee will meet at the end of November to consider any submission pursuant to the notifications, if any, and determine the next phase in the licensing process for each of the services.
