1.Meteo Group has performed in a more than satisfactory manner.
2.There is a condition in place between the County Council and the Contractor in the Professional Services Short Contract that the contract may be extended in increments of 12 months up to a maximum of 36 months.
To award the first year’s extension of the Weather Forecasting Contract from 1st September 2019 to 31st August 2020 to Meteo Group Ltd.
The option of re-tendering the contract was considered and it was decided that the cost of re-tendering the contract, along with the time element involved, would cost more than any saving that might (or might not) be made through re-tendering. The excellent performance by Environmental Performance to date reinforces this decision.
