Officer Report

Decision:

1.            That this report be exempt from disclosure by the Local Government Act 1972 Schedule 12A, Part 1, paragraph 3 (as amended), in that it contains information relating to the financial or business affairs of any particular person (including the authority holding that information).

2.            That the Cabinet Member for Finance, Property and Corporate Services approved the Direct Award of a contract to the preferred bidder for a period running from 10 April 2018 until 9 April 2020 for Data Network Services and noted the contract price for the two year term.

 

3.            That the Cabinet Member for Finance, Property and Corporate Services noted that as part of providing a shared IT service across Westminster City Council and the Royal Borough of Kensington and Chelsea, the intention is that a common networks service will be provisioned from April 2020.

 

Reasons for Decision

To maintain seamless and secure access for Westminster City Council staff to critical Council services, provide stability during a transition period where the Council will recant to City Hall, and to support the planned introduction of a Bi-borough shared network service with the Royal Borough of Kensington and Chelsea. Furthermore, the contract award avoids significant transition charges associated with a change of supplier for like-for-like services.
