· That Northgate Van Hire Ltd is appointed to provide the services outlined in this report, via an exemption from the requirement to go to tender and use a single supplier, granted in accordance with rule 11 of the council’s Contract Procedure Rules.
With reference to rule 11 of the Contract Procurement Rules, the exceptional circumstances which justify this are as follows:
A procurement exercise is currently underway in order to secure a four year contract for leased vans and associated services. The current contract ended on 28th October 2021. The procurement exercise may continue until the January 2022 (up to three months after the expiry of the existing contract). It is therefore necessary to appoint Northgate for a 3 month period for lease vans to cover the interim arrangements.
