• Purdy Contracts Ltd – Contract value £2.39m per annum
• K&T Heating Services Limited – Contract value £2.36m per annum
The Council was now approaching the end of the initial contract term and would like to exercise the option of extending both of the above contracts for a further 12-month period commencing October 2022.
That for the approval of future contract extensions as permitted under the two contracts, the Councils Standing Orders and in accordance with regulation 72 of the Public Contract Regulations (2015) is delegated to the Director of Placemaking and Housing.
The Cabinet Member RESOLVED
1. To approve the implementation of Contract Standing Order 10.02.1 b. pursuant to Contract Standing Order 16.02 and agree to extend both current Gas Servicing contracts with the following contractors:
• Purdy Contracts Limited, Value of 1st year extension is £2.39 million.
• K&T Heating Services Limited, value of 1st year extension is £2.36 million
2. Each contract is to be extended for a period of 12 months commencing from 2nd

3. To delegate the approval of future contract extensions, as permitted under the two contracts, the Councils Standing Orders, and in accordance with regulation 72 of the Public Contract Regulations (2015), to the Director of Placemaking and Housing.
Reasons for decision
The reasons for seeking to extend this contract were set out below:
In order to continue with the servicing and maintenance of Domestic & Commercial heating systems with minimal disruption to the residents.
To ensure continuity of ensuring that we are adhering to regulation 36 (Duties of Landlords) under the gas safe regulations 1998 to keep our residents safe.
This was the most economically advantageous route as a new procurement would inflate the contract sum under the current financial climate.
When the original procurement was conducted there were large savings made over the previous contract.
Alternative options considered
Undertaking a full procurement exercise to re-tender the contract
As the contract was procured as a 2 year plus 3 x 1-year extensions it would not have been viable to go through a full tender exercise as this could take between 9-12 months to procure, also the contractors' performance was good, so it was felt that there was no need to re-procure for a new contract at this stage. However, there was an interest for this service to be insourced within the Council, a review will be conducted within the next 12 ... view the full minutes text for item 3.
Approval is sought to award contracts to two contractors who have been selected from the South East Consortium Framework in order to deliver the required programme of Electrical Inspection Condition Reports (EICRs) and ensure compliance, following the depletion of our in-house team, due to staff leaving and recruitment difficulties. Due to the unforeseeable nature of these issues and the urgency in completing works to ensure compliance, it was not possible to comply with the usual 28-day notice period.
Given the above, it is not practicable to comply with the 28-day notice requirement in Part Four, Section D, Rule 13 of the constitution. This is set out in Part Four, Section D, Rule 16, of the Constitution.
