To ensure continuity of the contract allowing the Authority to purchase IT hardware for our Council buildings and schools.

Alternative options considered:

Re-procurement of this contract was not an option due to the current climate around Covid-19. The partnership between the Authority and the Supplier works successfully therefore, it was deemed an extension would be more beneficial economically and resourcefully. The contract in place adequately meets the Authority’s requirements.
