Salford City Council - Record of Decision




I, Councillor David Lancaster, Lead Member for Environment and Community Safety, in exercise of the powers contained within the City Council’s Constitution do hereby approve the virement of £0.200m within the 2020/21 Place (Regulatory Services) capital programme to finance the upgrade of the Civica and Powersuite IT systems. 



The Reasons:


The current contract for two systems used by Regulatory Services and Cleansing- Civica App (Regulatory Services software) and Powersuite (Refuse Collection Rounds Management Software), is coming to an end in March 2021. The software supplier for these systems is Civica.


Corporate IT have undertaken an option appraisal and recommend that Civica are re-contracted to provide upgraded web-based versions of both systems.  The upgrade can be undertaken as a capitalised one-off cost at £200k if an order is placed by 21 December 2020. 


Assessment of Risk is Low: There is a low likelihood the resource being vired to finance the upgrade will be required from Enforcement team by 31 March 2021
