Executive (Business Support) for the procurement for the Supply and
Delivery of Office Supplies.
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.
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.
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
