Award of term contract to carry out planned servicing, day to day repairs and minor improvement works to housing passenger lifts

This report sets out the proposed contract awards for sovereign insurance contracts for Engineering Inspection and Motor Insurance for contract commencement dates of 1st April 2020.


Reasons for urgency:


This is an urgent decision because the engineering inspection contract is for the delivery of statutory inspections of the Council’s lifts, boilers and other pressure vessels, ensuring legal compliance. The intention is to award the contract to a new supplier, who require a minimum mobilisation period of 6 weeks to schedule the first round of inspections that will be due from 1st April 2020. If the contract is not awarded urgently there is a risk of statutory non-compliance and a corresponding health and safety risk to the Council’s employees, visitors and residents.
