Decision Maker: Cabinet Member for Housing

Decision status: Recommendations Approved

Is Key decision?: Yes

Is subject to call in?: Yes

Purpose:

This report seeks approval to let a contract to undertake planned servicing, day to day repairs and minor improvement works to housing passenger lifts. The value of the contract exceeds the threshold for service contracts and has therefore been tendered in accordance with the Public Contracts Regulations 2006 (as amended).


Decision:

1.             That the Cabinet Member for Housing approves the appointment of Liftec Lifts Limited to carry out emergency and day-to-day reactive repairs, planned servicing and statutory inspections together with minor improvement works for all housing passenger lifts with an estimated annual value of £403,420 which equates to £2,017,100 over the five year period or £2,823,940 if the option to extend for a further two years is taken up. This excludes inflationary uplifts linked to industry indices.

 

2.             That the Cabinet Member for Housing agrees that the contract will start on 11th May 2020 for a period of five years, with an optional extension of a further two years.

Reasons for the decision:

The provision of a lift maintenance service is essential for both reasons of safety and resident convenience. A decision is required to appoint the contractor and is being referred to Cabinet Member in accordance with CSO 21.1.
