Award of a Contract for Merchant Acquiring Services

Decision maker:  Strategic Director, Resources

Decision due:   Not before 2 Mar 2018

Notice of proposed decision first published: 13/02/2018

This decision will be taken under urgency procedures.

Reason for urgency:
The implementation period for this contract requires the contract to be awarded within the next week. It is a critical contract for the Council due to the significant level of income that could be received by the Local Authority over the next four years. It would be impractical to defer because this would impact upon the contract mobilisation and the Council’s income streams would be severely impacted.
