Is Key decision?: No

Is subject to call in?: No


The Director of Public Health authorised the Consultant in Public Health to enter into a 12 month contractual agreement with Leeds Community Healthcare (LCH) to continue delivery of the Blood Pressure Wise programme without entering into a competitive tender process due to the unique delivery model (undertaken within the pilot) and clinical pathway in place. The contract shall commence on 1st April 2021 for the total sum up to a value of £40.000.00
This decision is guided by the relevant extract from the Contracts Procedure Rules (CPRs) as below-
8.3 Where the relevant Chief Officer considers there is genuinely no competition such that only a particular organisation or provider can meet the Council’s specific requirements (e.g. when commissioning a unique product or service) a waiver of CPRs 8.1 and 8.2 need not be obtained. However, the lack of competition must be formally evidenced in writing and approved by the relevant Chief Officer as part of a Delegated Decision before the contract is entered into.
