That Lever Technology Group to be appointed as the company to carry out a CCTV wireless survey of the Town, provide a specification of works needed and a post implementation audit. 3 competitive quotations were sought from wireless survey providers. Scoring on cost, quality and proven experience, Lever Technology Group scored highest.
In preparation of procuring a Service Provider or consortium of Service Providers for the delivery of a fit for purpose, and legally compliant Borough wide CCTV system upgrade, IBC needs to first complete a CCTV wireless survey to confirm feasibility of digital coverage and to determine what requirements and specifications are actually required.
The current CCTV maintenance contract has been extended till January 2019 ( see earlier decision notice). This provides a timeframe for procuring a new provider for an upgraded CCTV system. Before any of the works can be completed a Wireless survey is required to determine the current infrastructure in the Town. This will allow for IBC to understand what wireless connectivity we currently have and will inform the work and specification required for the procurement of an upgraded system.
Do nothing was rejected as an option because this would not deliver the anticipated operational savings and improved performance expected from this upgrade.
The Lever Technology Group quote is the most competitively priced at £37,855 and have proven experience in delivery, which minimises this risk and is economically in the best interests of the Council. In addition this company gains no advantage as they would not be able to bid for the CCTV upgrading work.
