Is subject to call in?: No
Cabinet is required to approve all key decisions with financial consequences of £500k or more. A procurement forward plan report for 2021-22 was approved by Cabinet on 2 March 2021. As stated in the said report, as service and transformation plans are developed it may be necessary to bring further approval requests to Cabinet.
Decision of the Portfolio Holder for Finance, Commercial & Capital Strategy
(a) To begin each of the procurement processes as set out and listed in Appendix 1 to the Cabinet report of 7 September 2021.
(b) That in each instance the further step of making any contract award be delegated to the relevant Cabinet portfolio holder, in consultation with the relevant Executive Director.
Reason for the decision: Cabinet is required to approve all key decisions with financial consequences of £500k or more. It is also good governance to provide Cabinet with a summary of all proposed procurement prior to them formally commencing. Planning procurements ensures:
· effective stakeholder management.
· efficient commissioning and sourcing.
· compliance with regulations and contract procedure rules; and
· best value for money is clearly defined.
