Is Key decision?: Yes

Is subject to call in?: Yes

Purpose:

To seek approval from the Assistant Chief Executive (Business Support) for the procurement for the Supply and Delivery of Office Supplies.

Decision:

The Assistant Chief Executive (Business Support) has approved the direct award for the contract for the Supply and Delivery for Office Supplies to Lyreco via the YPO Office Supplies – 1001 Framework.

The value of the contract is estimated to be up to £583,000. It must be noted that the demand for office supplies is variable and it is unknown whether it will return to pre-Covid 19 levels.

The duration of the contract shall be for an initial term of 3 years, with the option to extend (1 x 12 months). The potential maximum term is 4 years.

Reasons for the decision:

The Council’s existing contract is due to expire 14th January 2022, and a new contract is required to ensure continuation of the supply and delivery of office supplies as required by the Authority.

Alternative options considered:

The use of alternative frameworks in addition to other routes to market have been considered, however utilising YPO’s Office Supplies – 10001 Framework has been identified as the most appropriate option for this provision.
