Curious, one reason not to list the names of the directing minds is the fact that, as I mention above, a corporation is itself a legal person. It is the corporation making the bid, not the shareholders or directors who are causing it to do so. This is so even if the corporation was formed for the sole purpose of participating in the tender process.

That's the lawyerly answer.

From the perspective of the average concerned citizen, however, I agree that it makes sense that the directing minds of a bidding corporation should be revealed so as to permit council to make a truly informed decision (although it is open to them to take into consideration the past performance of the #ed company, if it has any history).

But there is a valid "juristic" reason not to do so.
