PROGRAMME MANAGEMENT AND CHANGE CAPACITY pdf icon PDF 140 KB

    This report seeks approval to award a contract for the provision of a project to develop the organisation’s programme management and change capacity to commence on 17 April 2018.  The report provides details of the procurement process, including the results of the evaluation process, and, in conjunction with the Part 2 report demonstrates why the recommended contract award delivers best value for money.

     

    Due to the commercial sensitivity involved in the contract award process, the names of the potential suppliers and their financial details have been circulated as a Part 2 report.

    Decision:

    RESOLVED:

     

    It was agreed;

     

    1.    That following consideration of the results of the procurement process in the part 2 submitted report, the award of a contract for the provision of a project to develop the organisation’s programme management and change capacity be awarded to Bloom, with the supplier named in the confidential annex as a recommended sub-contractor.

    2.    That a business case be presented to County Council in May 2018 to request that the Council approves use of capital receipts to fund the Programme Management and Change Capacity project rather than through Invest to Save reserves.

     

    Reasons for decisions:

     

    A tender process, in compliance with the requirement of Public Contract Regulations and Procurement Standing Orders has been completed, and the recommendations provide best value for money for the Council following a thorough evaluation process.
