The Director of Economic Growth and Neighbourhood Services submitted a report informing the Committee of the ongoing procurement process for the Bridge Maintenance (Works) Term Contract 2020-2024 and seeking authority to enter into a contract with the successful tenderer after the tendering process in accordance with the Public Contracts Regulations 2015.


The report noted that the Council was responsible for the maintenance of over 260 bridges and structures on the public highway.  A term consultant was employed who carried out a programme of routine inspections of all the bridges and structures and produced an annual programme of maintenance work.  The programme of maintenance was carried out by a single contractor and had been run under a term contract that had been tendered for in 2005.  This contract now required re-tendering, and it was proposed to tender for a new term contract commencing in 2020 for an initial term of 48 months, with the option to extend by a further 36 months subject to performance.


Resolved –


          That the Director for Economic Growth & Neighbourhood Services, in consultation with the Lead Councillor for Strategic Environment, Planning and Transport, the Assistant Director of Legal & Democratic Services and the Assistant Director of Finance, be authorised to enter into a contract with the successful tenderer for the Bridge Maintenance (Works) Term Contract 2020-2024 with a possible three-year extension.
