Forward Programme of Key Procurements (January - June 2023)

Decision Maker: Cabinet

Decision status: Recommendations Approved

Is Key decision?: Yes

Is subject to call in?: Yes


The report will seek approval for the Procurement forward programme which identifies the council's key procurements over a contract value of £500k that will require tendering over at least the forthcoming six month period.




That the Cabinet:


a)      endorses the procurement forward programme January – June 2023 (Appendix A of report FIN/595).


b)      delegates authority to the Leader of the Council in consultation with the relevant Cabinet Member, relevant Head of Service, and Head of Governance, People & Performance to approve the award of the contract following an appropriate procurement process.


c)      delegates the negotiation, approval and completion of all relevant legal documentation, following the awarding of the contracts to the relevant Head of Service, Head of Governance, People & Performance, Head of Corporate Finance, in consultation with the appropriate Cabinet Member.


(Generic Delegations 2 & 3 will be used to enact this recommendation)



Reasons for the Recommendations


By approving the procurement forward programme there is greater transparency of

future procurement processes allowing more scope for internal stakeholders to input into how future contracts are delivered.


The approval of the forward programme provides a key decision that will enable the individual procurement processes to be awarded under delegated authority once the tender process has concluded giving the Council the ability to reduce the time required to complete a procurement process.
