Contract Award Report: Asbestos Removal

A report to award a five year contract for an Asbestos removal service for the borough's housing stock. Authority to award this contract was delegated by Cabinet to the Cabinet Member for Housing.

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: such as full training in the Council's Asbestos process and Health and Safety policies. Any delay to mobilisation threatens service continuity beyond 1st August 2020 of what is a crucial service for the Health and Safety of residents.
