Waiver Of Council's Contract Standing Orders And Direct Award Of A Contract For The Provision Of Healthy Hearts Service

Decision Maker: Cabinet

Decision status: Recommendations Approved

Is Key decision?: Yes

Is subject to call in?: Yes


Report recommends a direct award for six months for the Healthy Hearts Contract.


1.    To approve a waiver under Contract Standing Orders (CSO) 3.1 in relation to the competition requirements of CSO 10.2 and CSO 11.2 (either to call off a framework or to advertise the contract and seek public quotations). The justification of the waiver is that the nature of the market for the services to be provided has been investigated and it is demonstrated to be such that a departure from these CSOs is justifiable and in the Council’s overall interest.  


2.    To approve the direct award of the contract for the delivery of a Healthy Hearts service to Thrive Tribe for six months from 1 October 2019 with an option to extend by two periods of up to three months each. The maximum contract cost over twelve months would be £472,029.


3.    To delegate the decision to extend the contract to the Director of Public Health in consultation with the Cabinet Member for Health and Adult Social Care.
