OD/14/13 Procurement of nine vans

Decision Maker: Officer Decision

Decision status: Recommendations Approved

Is Key decision?: No

Is subject to call in?: No


There is a need to increase the Council’s fleet of vans following a review of requirements. It was considered that in this case, purchase rather than lease would provide better value to the Council. A mini tender exercise was carried out in line with Contract Standing Orders for the procurement of nine vans. The tender included both provider and type of vehicle and included environmental issues and whole life costs. The total cost will be £78,134.85


The Fleet Manager led the procurement process in consultation with Officers from Finance and Procurement and service users. The Leader of the Council has been consulted by the Chief Operating Officer in making this decision as has the Council’s S151 Officer.
