A business consultant/consultancy with experience in the Biorenewables sector to provide ad hoc Business Engagement Support on a call off (zero contracted hours) basis covering a range of topics including: project management, contracts management, stakeholder engagement, funding applications, commercial proposals and strategic planning.
This tender is to commission work on the design and execution of a pilot surveillance study covering England, Wales, Northern Ireland and Scotland on AMR in Campylobacter spp. on fresh/frozen chicken sold at retail/wholesale and AMR in Salmonella spp. on fresh/frozen minced pork sold at retail / wholesale. In addition, selected commensal organisms (e.g. Escherichia coli, Enterococcus spp. and Klebsiella spp.) will also be included in this study as AMR is not an issue restricted to pathogens. Additional samples will also be taken in Scotland. The study will be representative of all four countries using market share data.
Study design, sample collection at retail and transportation to the testing laboratory;
Microbiological testing, data analysis and reporting.
This project is part of the radiological programme that includes monitoring and assessing the impact on the food chain of radiological discharges. The programme includes the monitoring for levels of radioactivity in food and the predictive modelling of exposure. The work enables FSA to assure the public about the safety of food, and this is an important contributing factor to public confidence in the nuclear industry and power generation. The results of the work inform and are essential to the production of the annual Radioactivity in Food and the Environment report.
Each year in partnership with EA, NRW and SEPA, the FSA publishes a report: ‘Radioactivity in Food and the Environment’ (RIFE) which provides the most comprehensive annual independent report of public exposure to radioactivity in the UK.RIFE assesses the effects of radioactivity on the public including people who live close to nuclear sites and eat locally produced food. The report also assesses the exposure to radioactivity from the direct radiation arising from activities carried out on nuclear sites.
To support the production of RIFE the FSA (supported by the EA and ONR) instructs a technical support contractor to undertake a Consumer Habits Research Programme around nuclear licensed sites in England and Wales. Each year, surveys of local habits for leisure, dwelling and food consumption at a selection of sites are conducted. The sites are agreed at an annual meeting of FSA, EA and ONR.
The Provision of Services for The National Reference Laboratories In The UK For:
FS616035 National Reference Laboratory for Feed Additives — Authorisation and Control.
FS616029 National Reference Laboratory for Genetically modified organisms in feed and food.
York Central (YC) is a brown-field opportunity site of regional and national significance. The site has the potential to deliver major mixed use regeneration immediately to the west of York railway station. Being c 72 hectares of underused and underutilised land, there is an immense opportunity to transform this site and capitalise on the inherent transport connections and proximity to the traditional city centre core.
Recent and evolving master-planning work envisages that the site could support:
— development of up to 80 000 m
— development of between 1 500 to 2 500 residential units;
— growth of the existing National Railway Museum as a cultural hub;
— the creation of new public realm, parks and green corridor connections between existing communities and throughout the site for pedestrians and cyclists.
The scope of services includes brand identity and marketing collateral, an integrated communications and marketing strategy and community engagement/consultation.
As part of the overall scope of services, regular engagement with the project team, update meetings and reports are required.
The appointed agency from this brief will not be marketing the site to procure future developers and/or investors.
Tenders are invited to carry out small scoping or proof-of-principle studies, looking at the use of novel technologies for detection of chemical and/or microbiological contamination in food or on food surfaces. We are looking to fund a number of projects.
The aim is to identify whether new technologies, or technologies not currently widely used in relation to food, could provide an effective means of detecting chemical or and/or microbiological contamination of food. These could be aimed at production premises (including abattoirs), or places where food is prepared (including restaurants and the home). The aim is to invite project (s) in any setting to detect chemical and/ or microbiological contaminants but we will state our specific interest in funding at least one project on the detection of chemical and/or microbiological contaminants in abattoir settings.
Detection of food contamination.
