OD/18/55 Unified Communications

At Executive committee on the 27th November 2018, approval was given for report: E/18/36 Procurement of Unified Communications Solution.


The decision made was:

“That the Chief Operating Officer, in consultation with the ICT Operations Manager and the Portfolio Holder for Resources, be authorised to enter into a contract with the chosen preferred supplier, as identified in exempt Appendix 2 to the report, for the purchase of a Unified Communications and cloud-hosted Office solution to replace existing telephony, contact centre and desktop Office systems”


This is deemed not to be a key decision as at a total contract value of £165,000 it falls below the approved threshold of £250,000 for capital expenditure. (Ipswich Borough Council’s key-decision guidance was approved by full Council on 16 January 2002)
