In 2004, Worcestershire County Council and the University of Worcester formed a new partnership with a view to deliver a joint Library and History Centre; a successful bid for PFI credits was submitted in March 2005. The project was formally launched to the market in early 2007 and three bidders were selected to commence a Competitive Dialogue process in October 2007.
