OD/16/75 Procurement of an ex-demonstration Batwing mower

Decision Maker: Officer Decision

Decision status: Recommendations Approved

Is Key decision?: No

Is subject to call in?: No


Due to a major engine fault on one of our mowers, consideration was given to purchasing a new mower, trading in the current mower for a new mower or a relatively new ex demonstration mower.


The merits and benefits of all the options were considered and after consultation with relevant officers, all of whom are in agreement with the decision that purchasing an ex-demonstration Mower at a net cost of £14,000, is the best value option. Therefore, there is a need for a Waiver of the requirement to conduct a competitive purchasing process, as it is the view of all consultees that this decision is economically in the best interests of the council.
