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


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.


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.
