Agreement to Award Housing Maintenance Contract
Exempt report of the Corporate Director (Housing and Communities) on the Housing Maintenance Service Award of Contract.
(1) The Decision Taken
Cabinet agreed with the unanimous views of the Procurement Board recommendation to:
(1) Award the housing maintenance contract.
(2) Let the contract for an initial 5 years starting from Wednesday 5 October 2022, with an option to extend the contract for up to a further 5 years, based on mutual agreement.
(2) Reasons for the Decision
The existing Housing Maintenance Contract was due to end on 30 September 2022, with no further option to extend.
The current contract included responsive repairs, voids and planned works for the Council’s stock of approximately 9,500 dwellings.
In September 2018, Cabinet agreed to set up a Procurement Board to oversee the Procurement process for the establishment of a contract to deliver the responsive repairs, voids and planned works to the councils housing stock.
The Procurement Board had met seven times since it was established in 2018, to agree a number of key decisions regarding the procurement process.
