The deal comes after Horse Racing Ireland`s 2020 budget cut funding for the IHR`s integrity service by 200,000 euros at the start of the year. However, it was reported that the tendering process between the RSI and the BHA preceded the reductions. Central Contracts and Legal Services (CCLS) monitors personal services, customer services and inter-local contracts for DSHS. Chapter 39.34 RCW, the Interlocal Cooperation Act, gives Washington state agencies such as DSHS the power to enter into contracts with other state agencies. The Act requires either to submit inter-local agreements with county registrars or to publish a list of all such contracts by sending goods. The tender, which is estimated to cost around 350,000 euros, aims to recreate other sports data exchange agreements around the world. The Irish Horseracing Regulatory Body (RSI) has signed a new agreement with the British Horseracing Authority (BHA) in which the duo will monitor betting trends across the Irish equestrian sector. Under the four-year contract, the RSI and the BHA will work together in “different areas of intelligence.” “We are depositing an element of our function. This is the same as using a third-party provider to provide the lab or provide camera images. It will be a monitoring service,” said Denis Egan, RSA`s Executive Director.
“We will work together in different areas of intelligence. It`s just a stronger bond between the two of us,” said an IHR spokesperson. DSHS has decided to publish a list of its inter-local agreements on this website. CCLS manages this page and updates it daily with current inter-local agreements, either in development or in force.
