The decision concerns the procurement of a backup solution for the Shared Technology Services’ Borough of Brent, Lewisham and Southwark, and requests approval to use a framework to procure a backup solution on the basis of the pre-tender considerations.
That the Strategic Director of Customer and Digital Services:
i) Approves inviting bids for a backup solution for the Shared Technology Services’ Boroughs under the HealthTrust Europe’s ICT Solutions 2019 Framework (ComIT 2 – Complete IT), on the basis of the pre-tender considerations.
ii) Approves officers evaluating the bids on the basis of the evaluation criteria.
Reasons for the decision:
It has been determined that the most appropriate means of providing the backup solution is through the procurement of a contractor by way of a mini-competition exercise under the HealthTrust Europe’s ICT Solutions 2019 Framework (ComIT 2 – Complete IT) (the “Framework”).
Alternative options considered:
Officers considered whether the backup solution can be provided by the council itself but concluded that backup solution is best provided by a contractor. Officers reviewed a range of procurement options including conducting a tender process but concluded that the use of the Framework is the most appropriate means of procuring a contractor.
