Issue details

Authority to utilise Regulation 72 (1) (b) of the Public Contracts Regulations 2015 to vary the current contract for the provision of building materials.

LBS is currently mobilising a number of new materials providers. This is a complex project that requires a significant amount of ICT interfacing between the Council’s Total Connect system and the new providers’ systems - in addition to other mobilisation matters such as acquiring new premises.

The service is therefore seeking approval to vary the contract with the existing provider, Wolseley UK Limited for 3 months. This will ensure that LBS and the new suppliers have sufficient time to mobilise and ensure a smooth handover.

The contract Wolseley UK Ltd will be varied, and extended untill 30th June 2023.
