*Re-published: call-in no longer applies* External Venues - Extension to Contract

Decision Maker: Corporate Director of Strategic Resources

Decision status: Recommendations Approved

Is Key decision?: Yes

Is subject to call in?: No


Approval to utilise the final available 12-month option to extend the contract for external venues. The extension will run from 27 February 2021 to 26 February 2022.

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 current supplier has successfully delivered the contract in line with the contract requirements and is meeting all of their contractual obligations.
It is difficult to know what the new “normal” will be going forward due to the Covid-19 pandemic. Home working set to continue for the majority of Authority staff for the foreseeable future.
Brexit may also have an impact on any future arrangements with the UK’s transition period coming to an end at the end of this year.
The utilisation of the available contract extension will allow the Authority sufficient time to establish its future requirements.

Alternative options considered:
