Cabinet is requested to:
1.1Note that we will be awarding the incumbent providers Slade & Wates a contract extension for a further 3 years in order to continue to deliver a statutory repairs and maintenance service across the borough to Council homes.
We will also be preparing for a future re-procurement exercise and this will be bought to Cabinet for authority to procure.
1.2 Provision was built into the contract to enable an extension for up to a further 5 years, and delegated authority was awarded in the original report in 2016, to the Divisional Director to approve a contract extension.
1.3 We will be exercising a partial contract extension option via delegated authority granted to the Divisional Director of Housing.
1.4 The original report and minutes of the 2016 Cabinet meeting have been reviewed by Harrow Legal and Procurement teams and they confirm that the correct governance is in place to allow for this.
