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

Purpose:

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.

Decision:

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.
