This report seeks to further extend the
Council’s current lift maintenance contract with ELA Group by
2 months to enable completion of the current procurement process to
appoint a new long- term maintenance contractor.
It is recommended that the existing Lift Maintenance Contract with ELA Group be extended for a further 2 months until 11 November 2019 at a total cost of £90,000.
Extension of the contract will ensure the delivery of lift maintenance services to residents until the new long-term contract is in place.
The tender for the new long- term contract was due to end on Friday 9 August
2019 but has had to be extended due to tender clarifications from contractors and TUPE issues.
There is no realistic alternative to extending the contract as it would leave the Council without a lift maintenance service until a new contract is procured which is untenable.
