The Reasons are: The copings and the brickwork to the perimeter of the roof have deteriorated and works are required to ensure that the building is wind and watertight.  The areas that have been identified as the highest priority are along Lewis Street elevation.

 

The windows on this elevation have exceeded their anticipated lifespan and require replacement. This will also aid in improving the ventilation to the rooms.

 

The pointing of the brickwork at first floor level including the terracotta copings is failing on the Lewis Street, Parr Street and St John Street upper elevations also needs to be repointed. There are areas internally areas of addled and damaged plaster which has been caused by the failure of the pointing. This is to be removed and replastered followed by isolated decoration.

 

Options considered and rejected were: None. All procedures are in accordance with normal Contractual Standing Orders

 

Assessment of Risk: High

Failure to maintain the fabric of the building could result in the closure of classrooms and ancillary areas which would have a negative impact on the education of the pupils.

 

The source of funding is:

·      Capital programme 2022/23

·      Expenditure code: E22015

 

Legal Advice obtained. Supplied by: The Shared Legal Service – Contact Officer and telephone number: Tony Hatton – Principal Solicitor tel. 0161 219 6323

 

When commissioning contracts for the procurement of goods, services, or the execution of works, the Council must comply with the Public Contracts Regulations 2015 (PCR) and its own Contractual Standing Orders (CSO’s), failing which a contract may be subject to legal challenge from an aggrieved provider. The proposed award of the contract follows a tender exercise by mini competition in accordance with the Minor Building Works Framework Agreement Lot 2.

 

The purpose of a framework agreement is to select through a procurement/ evaluation process a number of providers who can meet the service requirements of the Council, as and when those services are required. If they are required then the Council will undertake an exercise to call off the services from one or more of the providers who have been selected to be on the framework and this may be through any number of ways, e.g. mini-competition, direct allocation etc. depending on the circumstances. A contract will then be formed between the Council and the chosen provider/s.

 

The Council will need to have followed the procedure set out in the framework agreement for mini competition to ensure the procurement process is compliant. Two companies from the framework suppliers submitted a tender, and the bid has been evaluated on the most economically advantageous tender basis in line with published procedures resulting in the proposed award of the contract to Wright Build Ltd. The procurement procedures therefore appear robust and compliant with the requirements of the Council’s CSO’s and PCR.
