OD/20/36 New Electricity Supply for Portman Road MSCP

Decision Maker: Officer Decision

Decision status: Recommendations Approved

Is Key decision?: No

Is subject to call in?: No


The proposed multi storey car park project at Portman Rd will have a requirement for a 900kVa electricity supply.


There is a minimal supply capacity within the distribution network for the area and UKPN have confirmed that they have received other requests for supply.


MCS have therefore received a quotation from UKPN for the sum of £60,857.39 for this provision.


It is the proposal of this decision to place the order with UKPN funded from existing budgets allocated for the project to enable a rapid order to be placed with UKPN.


To waive contract standing orders as there is only one potential provider who can provide all the services required and to place the order with UKPN.


Reason: To supply the building with Electricity to enable the development.
