Contract Award Report: Responsive Repairs and Voids

Report to award contracts for the repair and maintenance of the Council's housing stock following a competitive procurement exercise.



Reasons for urgency:


The evaluation of the contract bids has been carried out and there is a need to urgently proceed to contract award, in order to maximise the period of mobilisation before the contract starts on 1st August 2020. There are major mobilisation activities that need to commence straightaway: namely the mobilisation of an IT interface between the Council’s housing management system and the contractor’s system, and the delivery of a TUPE transfer of staff between contractors. Any delay to mobilisation threatens service continuity beyond 1st August 2020 of what is a statutory service.
