Is Key decision?: Yes
Is subject to call in?: Yes
To seek approval to tender for the civil
engineering work for the provision of a hot water pipeline linking
the John Radcliffe and Churchill hospitals.
The potential value of the contract exceeds delegated authority levels
The Executive Director, Community Services has submitted a report (previously circulated, now appended) which sought approval to submit a bid for the civil engineering works associated with a proposed direct heat link between two large local employers’ buildings, as the potential value of the bid exceeds delegated authority levels.
The Executive Director, Community Services presented the report. The Board noted that the highways element of the work posed a significant reputational risk to the Council in terms of the public perception of further traffic disruption in the city. The Council would need to be pro-active in managing the public consultation and communications aspects of the contract. The Board was pleased to note that the Council’s reputation in highway related civil engineering work was such that it had received the invitation to tender.
The City Executive Board resolved to:
1. Authorise the submission of a bid for the civil engineering work referred to in this report;
2. In the event that the bid is successful, grant delegated authority to the Executive Director, Community Services, in consultation with the Council’s S151 Officer and Monitoring Officer, and subject to the contract making a satisfactory contribution towards central overheads, enter into an appropriate contract for the supply of relevant civil engineering works as identified in the Not for Publication Appendix.
