Following On Tower UK Limited acquisition of Arqiva Limited the council has been requested to approve the entering into a novation of the contract from Arqiva Limited to On Tower UK Limited
The Strategic Director for the Environment approves the entering into a novation of the contract from Arqiva Limited to On Tower UK Limited following On Tower UK Limited acquisition of Arqiva Limited. The total value of the contract is estimated at £1,065,307, over its 10-year life.
The Council is proposing to enter into the Deed of Novation to enable the services to continue to be provided until the expiry of the contract in August 2024.
Option 1. Entering the Deed of Novation will ensure continuity of service. The installation and maintenance of equipment will facilitate the provision of a wireless network in streets and open spaces within the London Borough of Hammersmith and Fulham. This is the preferred option.
Option 2 refuse consent to enter into the deed of novation is likely to cause disruption to service provision
Option 3 undertake a procurement of a new contract and draw the current contract to an end which could result in disruption to service installation and maintenance.
