Decisions

 

1. That the procurements and awards of contracts set out in Appendix A to a maximum value of £5m be approved, and those over £5m would be reported back to Cabinet for detailed consideration.

 

2. In giving this approval, Members are approving known / likely procurement set for implementation during 2019/20 (or as specifically noted otherwise) on terms to be agreed by the delegated officer, Corporate Director or Portfolio Holder for each arrangement.

 

3. That procurements exceeding the key decision threshold which are not yet identified will be subject to a separate report for approval by the Cabinet, at a later date.

 

Reasons for Decisions

 

1. Cabinet was required to approve all key decisions with financial consequences of £500k or more. It was also good governance to provide Cabinet with a summary of all proposed procurements prior to them formally commencing.

 

2. Planning procurements effectively ensures: effective stakeholder management; efficient sourcing; compliance with regulations and contract procedure rules; and, best value for money.

04/06/2019 - Budmouth College Academy Conversion ref: 112    Recommendations Approved

Decision Maker: Dorset Council - Cabinet

Made at meeting: 04/06/2019 - Dorset Council - Cabinet

Decision published: 07/06/2019

Effective from: 04/06/2019

Decision:

Decision

 

That the request for up to £600k for pay restructuring costs be declined as there are alternative opportunities to access funding for the restructure that will not place pressure directly on the council budgets.

 

Reason for Decision

 

Option 1 would incur additional cost to the council and put pressure on the budget as this cost was not budgeted for in 2018/19. Option 2 would result in restructure costs being identified from elsewhere and could potentially impact the Interim Executive Board (IEB) restructure timetable.
