OD-16-68 Provision of Quantity Surveying Services

Why is it being made listing reasons for the decision

The provision of Quantity Surveying services to Maintenance & Contracts is essential in enabling the progression of multi-million pound capital works programmes. Previous procurement exercises have failed to provide long term solutions.


It is proposed to use the Council’s membership of the E2 consortium run by Orwell Housing Association to procure this service in the short term on a 12 month fixed term contract at a cost of £73,840.00


Contract Standing Orders 3.5 Collaborative arrangements are relevant in this case.


Alternative options considered and why rejected

Previous procurement options have not been successful in providing this service for the long term.
