Award of Contract
Report of the Corporate Director (Resources, Environment and Cultural Services) on the award of contract for the electronic banking of monies collected for Council services via Post Office or PayPoint locations.
(1) The Decision Taken
That the Cabinet approves a three year contract (with an option to extend by up to another three years, in increments of not less than 1 year at a time) with All Pay Limited commencing on 1 April 2020 for payment services.
(2) Reasons for the Decision
Currently the Council used All Pay through the Procurement for Housing framework, which consolidated the buying power of a number of local authorities and housing associations. This had been working well but the current contract would expire on 31 March 2020.
The General Procurement Board considered options for future service provision and unanimously recommended to the Cabinet to continue to utilise from this framework and that a new three year contract be entered into with All Pay Limited commencing 1 April 2020.
