Share this page

Tuesday 14 May 2024

The States of Guernsey and Government of Jersey's joint procurement process for passenger and freight ferry services is beginning its next phase.

The two Islands are now inviting formal tenders from applicants with the necessary experience and capability.

The joint tender exercise is available from today, Tuesday 14 May and can be located on Channel Islands Tenders (channelislandtenders.com).

The deadline for submissions is set to the 8 July 2024.

Deputy Neil Inder, President of Guernsey's Committee for Economic Development said:

"We have completed the initial market testing phase of this procurement process, and now we are inviting formal tenders from interested applicants.  We remain on track to complete the overall process and make a final decision before the end of the year, in time for when the current agreement ends. 

This is an open and impartial procurement process being run jointly by Guernsey and Jersey, and we therefore don't intend to provide an ongoing commentary or engage in speculation while it's taking place.  But we will provide the community with any significant updates as the process continues."

Deputy Kirsten Morel, Jersey's Minister for Sustainable Economic Development said:

"The reason that we are going through this process is to ensure that we secure the best possible freight and passenger services for the Channel Islands. The islands are working together with the shared objective of finding the operator which can deliver the best service in terms of resilience, reliability, passenger experience and sustainability."
