*Re-published: call-in no longer applies* Re: DN435048 Civil Engineering Contractors Framework

Decision Maker: Corporate Director of Business and Environmental Services

Decision status: Recommendations Approved

Is Key decision?: No

Is subject to call in?: No


To abandon the award of the Civil Engineering Contractors Framework.

Reasons for the decision:

*PLEASE NOTE This decision was originally published on or near the date of the decision and so call in no longer applies. It has been re-published as part of the change in committee management system that we use.*

The Authority has reviewed the specification and evaluation approach and has decided that it needs to reassess the framework agreement in full to ensure that it meets the needs of the Authority.

As part of this review, the Authority needs to re-assess the capacity of the supply market and number of suppliers on the framework to ensure appropriate continuity of supply and project delivery over the life of the framework. This has been further exacerbated by the current pandemic situation and the Authority considers it may be more appropriate to have more suppliers on the framework.

Alternative options considered:

Continue with the award but risk the framework not being fit for purpose, as the agreement would be for a 4 year period. Any failure in the framework during this period, could result in projects failing to be delivered.
