The National Environment Agency (NEA) is calling for proposals on the management of four hawker centres that are under the stall ownership scheme.
SINGAPORE: The National Environment Agency (NEA) is calling for proposals on the management of four hawker centres that are under the stall ownership scheme.
The four centres, whose lease will expire on 31 May 2014, are located at Block 207 New Upper Changi Road, Block 117 Aljunied Avenue 2, Block 20 Ghim Moh Road and Block 503 West Coast Drive.
In a statement on Friday, NEA said the selected parties will be appointed as master tenants.
The arrangement is to allow them to operate hawker centres using new models, given their prior experience in food and beverage operations, as well as property and lease management.
NEA said the aim is to widen the diversity of affordable food options and dining experiences, as well as employment opportunities for Singaporeans and permanent residents.
The statement noted that a public consultation panel had in 2012 recommended that new hawker centres be managed on a not-for-profit basis by social enterprises or cooperatives.
NEA said it welcomes proposals from interested parties or organisations that meet the requirements.
It added that depending on the level of interest in the exercise, it may consider extending the approach to other hawker centres that are under the stall ownership scheme.
The call for proposals is being made through the GeBIZ procurement system.
