11/02/2020 - Pendleton Together Rent and Service Charges 2020/21 ref: 616    Recommendations Approved

Decision Maker: Cabinet

Made at meeting: 11/02/2020 - Cabinet

Decision published: 11/02/2020

Effective from: 20/02/2020

Decision:

Salford City Council - Record of Decision (CABINET)

 

I Paul Dennett, City Mayor, in exercise of the powers contained within the Salford City Council constitution do hereby approve:

1.    An increase of 2.7% for rents in 2020/21 for housing stock owned by the City Council. The same level increase to be applied to garage rents and caravan site fees.

2.    Adjustments to service charges to reflect the actual cost of providing those services.

The reasons are that

In line with government rent setting methodology the rental increase is based upon the CPI inflation measure at September 2019 plus 1%. Additional rental income will help to meet the costs included within the Housing Revenue Account (HRA) business plan which must be balanced on a 30 year basis. The resulting rents are below Local Housing Allowance rates which are used to calculate entitlement to housing benefits.

Pendleton Together have reviewed the current charges and adjusted service charges to reflect the actual costs of services and will vary from block to block depending upon services received. The table below identifies the average rental charge combined with the average service charge per block to show the variation across blocks.

 

 

The council have in place a number of schemes to help people. BetterOff  Salford will help people to find out about benefit entitlement and provide help with applying online.  Staff at our gateways can also offer face-to-face support. The council administers a discretionary housing payment scheme which can provide short term support to alleviate hardship and Salford Assist can provide help with essential items to people in crisis.

Options considered and rejected were

Good practice requires a comparison of the costs of service provision with the income generated from service charges with the aim of ensuring that the charging policy is fair and equitable and that general rental income is not subsiding the cost of services to individual tenants.

Assessment of risk

Rent increase is based upon government formula of CPI plus 1% and service charges reflect actual costs. The rent increase reduces the financial risk of being unable to balance the long term HRA business plan.

Legal advice obtained.

The council is required to set a balanced HRA budget.

28/01/2020 - 11.00: City of Salford Community Stadium Ltd ref: 615    Recommendations Approved

Decision Maker: Cabinet

Made at meeting: 28/01/2020 - Cabinet

Decision published: 10/02/2020

Effective from: 18/02/2020

Decision:

Salford City Council - Record of Decision (CABINET)

 

I, Paul Dennett, City Mayor, in consultation with the Cabinet and in exercise of the powers contained within the City Council constitution do hereby:

  1. Approve the council’s provision of financial resources in the form of a repayable interest-bearing loan of up to £0.660m to City of Salford Community Stadium Ltd (CoSCoS). This is to be on a 50:50 basis with Peel Holdings for the financial period to 31 March 2020, the sum being the council’s 50% share.
  2. Delegate to the Strategic Director for Place the completion of all the necessary legal and ancillary documentation identified as necessary to give effect to 1 above.

The reasons are

The stadium, managed by CoSCoS Ltd, continues to be the catalyst for regeneration and development of the surrounding land.  The stadium provides employment for 235 people across catering and operations.  The sale of several large sites continues to develop the city councils long terms plans to regenerate the area which bring jobs and economic benefits to the city.

Whilst CoSCoS is Ltd is trading well there will continue to be a requirement for further working capital funding until such time as all of the development land is sold, allowing the repayment of existing development and working capital loans. The advance of £0.660m for 2019/20 is necessary to continue to secure the council’s investment. 

In addition to ongoing principal repayments, CoSCoS has repaid £1.183m generated from the sale of land. It is anticipated that the overall level of debt owed by CoSCoS to the council will reduce by £0.535m by the end of 2019/20.

The investment will generate interest payments in excess of the costs of borrowing incurred by the council. This interest is set aside in a reserve which mitigates the risk of sale values falling short of the amount required to repay the debt.  The resulting balance of risk is reducing on an annual basis.

Options considered and rejected were

Not providing the loan facility.

Assessment of risk

Without funding provided by the shareholders, CoSCoS would be unable to continue trading, the consequences of which would include a default on the existing development and working capital loans.

The source of funding is

Borrowing.

Legal advice obtained

Legal advice originally secured in 2017/18 confirmed:

  • The appropriateness of the facility agreement as a mechanism for funding
  • The requirement for State Aid compliance

This position is unchanged.

EQUALITY IMPACT ASSESSMENT AND IMPLICATIONS:- 

This contract will have a positive impact on some very vulnerable Children and Young People who currently receive no service.


ASSESSMENT OF RISK: 

If the exception is not approved and we are unable to award the contract to TDAS and TLC to deliver these services then this may have a detrimental impact on the Children and Young People who currently are victims of domestic abuse across the city.


SOURCE OF FUNDING:  

Best value CCG transformation funding


 

LEGAL IMPLICATIONS: Supplied by: Tony Hatton, Principal Solicitor, tel. 219 6323

 

Ordinarily when commissioning contracts for the procurement of goods, services or the execution of works the Council as a ‘contracting authority’ must comply with the Public Contract Regulations 2015 (PCR) as well as the provisions of its own Contractual Standing Orders (CSO’s), Financial Regulations and the duties of Best and Social value. In addition, the PCR require that contracting authorities treat candidates equally and in a non-discriminatory way and act in a transparent manner, failing which the award of a contract may be subject to legal challenge. For contracts of this value the Council would usually undertake a tender exercise using the Chest portal.

 

However in exceptional circumstances where CSO’s permit, the Council may approve an exception, and the report sets out the reasons for the request in accordance with  CSO’s. Whilst exceptions to CSO’s may be authorised by an approval from the Procurement Board, there is still a risk of challenge from aggrieved providers if the usual tender process has not been followed on the basis that it ought to have been advertised and put out to competition.

The risk of challenge increases with the value and duration of a proposed contract being awarded. Here the period proposed is short and is for a low value, the services to be provided are needed urgently, are specialist services, and the provider is described as a unique provider of the services hence uniquely placed within the market, and accordingly the risk of any such challenge may be regarded as extremely low.

 

The Council is also under a best value duty to carry out its functions economically, efficiently and effectively with the objective to achieve value for money in all public procurement, and having considered the circumstances in this matter has concluded that the recommendation to award the pilot contract to Trafford Domestic Abuse and TLC is considered to be of least risk and of most benefit to the Council.

By way of general comment, pilot schemes are usually carried out in order to identify the suitability of potentially new ways of delivering services, particularly if linked to innovation and developing a marketplace where one may not exist. Usually (for awards of greater financial value) to avoid the potential for challenge to a direct award of a pilot scheme to a provider, a scheme should be clearly defined in its period/length, scope, cost and required outcomes.


FINANCIAL IMPLICATIONS: Supplied by:  Chris Mee, Strategic Finance Manager, Tel: 0161 778 0434

The cost of this contract of circa £164k per annum, will be met from within the approved transformation funding provided by the CCG, for the Salford Best Value Programme. 


PROCUREMENT IMPLICATIONS: Supplied by: Christopher Conway, Procurement Category Manager, tel. 0161 686 6248

Salford Procurement have been in discussions with Children’s Services since early November and reviewed options to tender this with them however it was discussed and agreed that an exception would be the preferred route by the service lead for the reasons stated in this report. Procurement can confirm that a tender exercise will be scheduled during the 2nd year of the proposed contract.

Funding Source

Revenue Budget

 

The Reasons are:

The purpose of this report is to seek request an exception to Contractual Standing Orders to approve the award of a contract forSupport and Maintenance for the Documentum Enterprise Content Management Solution.

Documentum is the corporate Document and Records management solution and is used core system that is extensively across the council to provide document & records management, scanning and workflow / automation solutions

 

Assessment of Risk

 

The Council has a requirement to ensure that it has adequate mechanisms in place to ensure maintenance of its IT systems.  Therefore the risks associated with not approving this exception must be balanced against the risk of not having appropriate mechanisms in place which would not be in the best interests of the Council.

 

The source of funding is Revenue Budget.

 

Legal Advice obtained:

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.

 

Whilst exceptions to CSO’s may be authorised by a decision notice from Procurement Board, as detailed in the Constitution there is still a risk of challenge from aggrieved providers if the usual tender process has not been followed. The risk of challenge increases in tandem with the value and proposed length of the extension. In this instance, as noted in the report, the value of the proposed award is relatively. However the Council is not commissioning a service which may be readily provided by a number of suppliers in the marketplace, if indeed any, and Open Text appear to be in a unique position to provide the services to the Council to realise the benefits set out in the report.

 

Whilst the value of the proposed award is below threshold, for information, direct awards of contracts may be made in limited circumstances, set out at regulation 32 of the PCR (“Negotiated procedure without prior publication”) such that reg 32 (2)(b)(ii) confirms use of the procedure:

“…where the works, supplies or services can be supplied only by a particular economic operator for any of the following reasons:—

 (ii)  competition is absent for technical reasons,

 but only….where no reasonable alternative or substitute exists and the absence of competition is not the result of an artificial narrowing down of the parameters of the procurement;”

Accordingly the risk of any challenge being successful may be regarded as extremely low

 

Financial Advice obtained:

 

The budget held in 2018/19 was £339,881 and the expenditure for that year totalled £349,205, including £55,786 costs for the support and maintenance of the Documentum Enterprise Content Management Solution System. The 2019/20 expenditure costs of £55,661 will be funded from the current revenue budget of £396,881.

 

The source of funding is: Digital and Business Revenue Budget

Expenditure code C1161 5742

 

Procurement Advice obtained:

 

There is always a risk that any award of business, if made outside of the full competitive processes, could be subject to challenge by an aggrieved supplier on the basis that it ought to have been advertised and put out to competition. This risk cannot be eliminated.

 

In this instance, the Council can rely on the provision of Regulation 32 (2) (b) (ii) of The Public Contracts Regulations 2015;

 

32.—(1) in the specific cases and circumstances laid down in this regulation, contracting authorities may award public contracts by a negotiated procedure without prior publication.

(b) Where the works, supplies or services can be supplied only by a particular economic operator for any of the following reasons:—

 (ii) Competition is absent for technical reasons,

The direct award to OpenText represents a low risk to the Council in terms of potential challenge by other suppliers, as the Council is unable to purchase the support and maintenance from anywhere else.  Additionally it may be argued that due to the financial investment and complexity of the arrangement already in existence it would be prohibitive at this time for a fair and open competition to be undertaken and would not achieve value for money.

Decision published: 03/02/2020

Effective from: 11/02/2020

Decision:

Salford City Council - Record of Decision (CABINET)

 

I, Paul Dennett, City Mayor, in consultation with the Cabinet and in exercise of the powers contained within the City Council constitution do hereby:

  1. Approve Salford’s Housing Strategy Our Home Our City 2020 - 2025

 

The Reasons are:

 

Salford’s most recent housing strategy ‘Shaping Housing in Salford 2020’ was developed in 2016 and a decision was made in January 2019 to update it in light of changes within housing and the wider cross cutting sectors.

 

A collaborative approach has been applied to the production of the revised housing strategy and delivery plan, including consultation with a wide range of stakeholders to inform the development of key objectives and priorities, along with activities identified to achieve those priorities.

 

The key findings identified following the analysis of the strategic/policy drivers and local data/trends was used to inform the draft priorities and objectives.

 

Further public consultation and collaboration with key stakeholders has assisted in finalising the delivery plan and strategy document.

 

Options considered and rejected were:

Do nothing – This is not considered an option due to:

  • Changes in the housing sector including: strategic and policy steer (at all levels), the local challenges facing housing need and specifically the need, demand and provision of housing locally

 

 

Assessment of Risk: Medium

The strategy identifies a number of key priorities and objectives with key delivery outcomes which will be monitored through the action plan. Risks in terms of the delivery of the priorities and objectives will be reviewed annually. It is recognised that there are a number of outcomes which if not delivered carry risks. Mitigating these risks will be a key part of the action plan monitoring.

 

The source of funding is within available budgets or work to be undertaken to identify additional funding as appropriate.

Legal Advice obtained yes

Financial Advice obtained yes
