Decision details

Procurement of a building contract on an investment property

Decision Maker: Cabinet

Decision status: Recommendations Approved

Is Key decision?: Yes

Is subject to call in?: No


The Director of Place reported that a building contract was required to make improvements and increase the size of an investment property.  The small scale of the contract made the Council’s usual procurement process unsuitable, and therefore an exemption to this process was sought to allow for a more focussed tender exercise to be carried out.




i)        To approve an exemption from the procurement rules to enable a tender from 4 to 6 contractors for this proposed construction project rather than an open tender.


ii)       Delegate approval to the Director of Place in consultation with the Cabinet Member for Finance and Assets, to approve the final tender sum and authorise the Council to enter into a construction contract, provided that the figures are within the agreed budget envelope.




i)          To ensure competitive interest in this construction project from suitable contractors.
