Project Approval – End User Device Refresh
The Head of Business Improvement had submitted a report which seeks project approval and delegated authority for the Executive Director of Organisational Development and Corporate Services to award a contract for refresh of end user devices for City Council Officers.
Councillor Susan Brown, Deputy Leader and Lead Member for Customer and Corporate Services, explained that the majority of the Council’s end user devices needed to be updated; necessary software changes were imminent; and there were economies of scale to be derived from large scale purchasing. All of which led to the preferred option of replacing all relevant assets in one go and in 2018/19.
The City Executive Board resolved to:
1. Give project approval for the Procurement of End User Devices for City Council Officers; and
2. Delegate to the Executive Director of Organisational Development and Corporate Services, in consultation with the portfolio holder, authority to award a contract for the supply and implementation of End User Devices for City Council Officers.
