The Cabinet Member for Council Transformation, Sustainability, Strategic Planning and Transport and the Director of Planning and Transport submitted a joint report concerning details of a proposal to award works for highways, transport and landscape projects to Swindon Commercial Services Ltd (SCS) for the 2012/13 programme of works.
Councillor Peter Greenhalgh, Cabinet Member for Council Transformation, Sustainability, Strategic Planning and Transport, expressed his support for the proposal that ensured transparency of decision making and the best value delivery of works awarded to Swindon Commercial Services Ltd.
Resolved – (1) That the Director for Planning and Transport be authorised to award individual schemes to Swindon Commercial Services Ltd., as set out in the programmes in Appendices A, B and C to the report and that the Council’s Contract Standing orders be waived accordingly.
(2) That it be noted that contracts subject to OJEU can only be dealt with in this way whilst Swindon Commercial Services is ‘Teckal’ compliant.
(Councillor Garry Perkins, Deputy Leader of the Council and Cabinet Member for Regeneration and Culture, made a personal declaration of interest in respect of the above item as he was a Council appointed Non-Executive Director on the Board of Swindon Commercial Services (SCS) Ltd.)
