Decision details

To seek approval for the appointment of Drainage 2000 Ltd to the CCTV and Jetting Contract 2019

Decision Maker: Director of Environment and Transport

Decision status: Recommendations Approved

Is Key decision?: No

Is subject to call in?: No

Purpose:


The County Council currently employs two of its own teams on jetting work and a further team on CCTV work. From time to time the network demands mean that these resources cannot meet acceptable response times. In previous years it has operated one-year top-up CCTV and jetting contracts and these have worked successfully. It is now proposed to let a two-year top-up contract (extendable by up to three years) so as to avoid the need for continual re-tendering. Drainage 2000 Ltd has submitted the lowest tender price overall and its quality submission is fourth.

Decision:

To appoint Drainage 2000 Ltd to the
CCTV and Jetting Contract 2019.

Alternative options considered:

The option of whether to accept or not Variant Tenders was considered with Central Procurement prior to issuing the tender documents. It was decided not to permit Variant Tenders.
