Procurement strategy - Contract for Parking Suspension System

Decision Maker: Cabinet Member for the Environment

Decision status: Recommendations Approved

Is Key decision?: Yes

Is subject to call in?: Yes


This is a procurement strategy for a Parking Suspension System to replace the existing system that has come to its end of life.


Approve the procurement of a contract for parking suspension system as set out in this strategy. The term of the contract will be for five (5) years starting 1st September 2021, with the option to extend for two separate periods of two (2) years each at an annual value of approximately £100,000, making a total of £500,000 over 5 years or £900,000 if the extensions are fully utilised over the 9 year period.


Reasons for the decision:

Permission is required to go ahead with a procurement exercise that will enable the Council to acquire a replacement parking suspension system.


A new parking suspension system will contribute to streamlining the process.  The existing contract is coming to the end of life. There are no available framework contracts to draw down from.


Alternative options considered:

Officers are not aware of any available framework contracts for this, and they will be looking to publish a tender. As it is a niche market, they will be looking to go down the open tender procedure route. This should be a quicker process.
