Supplier contract award for Microsoft software licenses

The decision relates to the award of a contract for the provision of Microsoft licences.

This is a decision reserved to Cabinet under Constitution Part 4.5(10) relating to project approval.

However, in the circumstances, an urgent decision is made by the Chief Executive under her authority delegated by Part 9.3(b) of the Constitution which provides that the Chief Executive is authorised to take any urgent action necessary to protect the Council’s interests and assets where time is of the essence and it is impracticable to secure authority to act where such authority would otherwise be required.

In exercising such authority, the Chief Executive, will be guided by budget and policy framework, will consult the other Statutory Officers before acting and will report, in writing, as soon as practicable to the body which would otherwise have been required to give the necessary authority to act.

Key decision procedures and call in procedures will apply to any key decisions taken under this authorisation.
