In Summer 2009 the Management Committee appointed the Northern Utility Consulting Brokerage (NUCB) as the broker to the Consortium for electricity, gas and telecommunications. Subsequently a number of members used NUCB to identify the lowest priced contracts and entered into contracts direct with the suppliers. All members using the service were satisfied that they had achieved lower prices than they would have done by taking on this task themselves.
However in August 2010 the Consortium was informed that NUCB has stopped trading. The Management Committee then initiated a process to identify an alternative broker to represent the Consortium, and this has now been completed.
