Decision details

Aids and Adaptations Contract Extension

Decision Maker: Cabinet Member for Housing and Customer Services

Decision status: Recommendations Approved

Is Key decision?: Yes

Is subject to call in?: Yes

Purpose:

Background is the strategy for provision of aids and adaptations for disabled tenants in properties owned and managed by CityWest Homes on behalf of Westminster City Council. The existing suppler (Effectable) carries out reviews of Occupational Health recommendations and installs property improvements for disabled/ “at risk” persons and families. A contract needs to be procured to replace the existing contract which expires on 17/6/18. The existing contract needs to be extended until 17/07/19 to allow time for a restricted competitive procedure as there is a dense supplier market.

Decision:

1.            That this report be exempt from disclosure by virtue of 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 Housing and Customer Services approved the extension of the current contract for Aids and Adaptation between City West Homes and the supplier as detailed in the report from 18th June 2018 to 17th June 2019. 

 

Reasons for Decision

1.            A single supplier contract needs to be procured to replace the existing Aids and Adaptations contract, which expires on 17th June 2018. The existing contract needs to be extended until 17th June 2019 to allow time for a restricted competitive procedure, as there is a dense supplier market.

 

2.            Quality, Health and Safety, and safe transfer of services and confidential data to the new supplier are key factors in the re procurement.
