Issue details

Commercial Portfolio Estate Management Consultancy (1 April 2005 - 31 March 2012)

To approve the delegation of authority to the Director of Finance & Resources to extend the existing contracts for two years.


The principle of a two-year extension to the contract was approved by the Policy & Resources Committee in 2004, prior to tendering and again when contracts were awarded. The Policy & Resources report made no provision as to which decision-making body or person within the council would have the authority to exercise the option to extend contracts. As Policy & Resources approval was an Executive decision, the same is true as regards the contract extension and it falls to the Cabinet Member for Central Services to give the necessary authorisation to delegate authority to the appropriate officer, the Director of Finance & Resources.

 

The item did not appear on the Forward Plan previously as recent legal advice has indicated that it should be regarded as a key decision.
