Key Decision in relation to the Office Furniture contract

A Key Decision is required in relation to the Office Furniture contract in order to utilise the available contract extension from 1 April 2024 – 31 March 2025.

Approval for the extension has been granted through the Gateway process, and while spend under the contract isn’t expected to breach the £500,000 expenditure threshold to trigger a Key Decision, the addition of spend for all legacy authorities following LGR has increased the anticipated whole life cost.

A Key Decision is being taken as the anticipated whole life cost falls close to the threshold and with spend against this contract being variable, there is a risk the threshold may be exceeded.
