The Gas Servicing and Maintenance contract to the Council’s Housing stock was tendered and approved by Executive on 24th July 2012. The report contained sensitive commercial information and was considered on the closed agenda.
It was let on a 4 year contract with an option to extend by up to 2 years. The initial 4 year period expired on the 30th September 2016 and the option to extend by 1 year was taken up on 6th June 2016. It has been decided to extend the contract by one final year. The value of the contract for one year is £1,000,000.
Alternative options considered and why rejected
The option to re-tender the contract was considered but given that the existing Contractor provided the most advantageous tender and they have performed and demonstrated that they capable of continuing to provide the level of service required, the option to extend the contract by a further year was considered the most economically advantageous option.
It has been decided to extend the contract by one final year. The value of the contract for one year is £1,000,000.
The existing contractor has confirmed that they will accept the same terms and conditions and rates in compliance with the contract agreement, which complies with Public Contracts Regulations.
