Extension and variation of cooperation agreements with Area Inclusion Partnerships 2019-20

Variation of existing agreements with Area Inclusion Partnerships to further extend from 1st April 2019 to 31st March 2020, whilst longer-term arrangements are determined.

The decision to extend and vary these cooperation agreements falls within Clause 1.5.2 of the Contract Procedure Rules as it is a cooperation between public bodies and falls outside of the Public Contract Regulations pursuant to Regulation 12(7). Therefore it is not a procurement for the purpose of the Contract Procedure Rules.  This is a key decision because the value of the extensions is over £250k per annum (Approx £5.2m).
