update on process


The Service Director People and Places submitted a report seeking agreement for an exemption to the council’s contract procedures for the supply and delivery of recycling bins direct to each household eligible for the recycling scheme.




The portfolio holder


·         agreed to accept the bid and award the contract to Company A, as the preferred supplier and delivery company of plastic wheeled bins for the roll out of the box to bin exchange.


·         gave approval to proceed under the exemption to Contract Procedures contained within the Financial Regulations and Financial Procedure Rules (Appendix F) on the grounds that an exemption may apply where “a framework agreement is available that necessitates the Council not having to go out for tender and the goods, works and services will still provide the Council with best value for money.”
