The subject of the decision:
This report sought approval to waive the procurement rules set out in the Council’s Procurement Procedure Rules and Procurement Manual in relation to a contract to procure physical improvement works to the Link and East road in Northallerton.
Alternative options considered:
The reason for the decision:
Cabinet was satisfied that request to waiver the procurement rules was necessary on the basis that there were circumstances which were genuinely exceptional, namely that the Central Northallerton Development Company Limited was best placed to deliver the improvement works and therefore represented best value.
That Cabinet grants an exemption from the Council’s Procurement Procedure Rules and authorises the Deputy Chief Executive (at his discretion), in consultation with the Leader, to negotiate the terms of and enter into an agreement with Central Northallerton Development Company Limited to provide the improvement works to The Link and East Road, Northallerton.
