Authority to Award Works Contract for South Kilburn Enterprise and Community Hub (Phase 1b)
Notice of proposed decision first published: 03/11/2017
This decision will be taken under urgency procedures.
Reason for urgency:
On 13 March 2017 Cabinet agreed the basis upon which tenders would be evaluated and delegated the decision to award the works contract. The need to report back to Cabinet was therefore not planned. However, as tenders have been evaluated on a different basis, it is now necessary to report the actual evaluation criteria and weightings to Cabinet. That being the case, it is considered appropriate for Cabinet to make the award decision itself. The Council secured £720k of GLA funding for this work. It is time limited and needs to be claimed this financial year. If the Council are unable to facilitate a start on site in November, there is a significant risk that it will not be possible to complete the works in time to secure the funding. The next scheduled meeting of Cabinet is on 13 November 2017. If the decision were to be delayed beyond that meeting, the funding would be put at risk.
