Decisions:

The Finance and Resources Portfolio Holder, Councillor Andrew Jarvis, reported that since April 2016, the Council’s Constitution had permitted officer to conduct and conclude the contracting processes without further approval, providing it was in line with the Procurement Schedule, to be approved by Council at least annually. Where a procurement process was over budget, then approval would still be required in accordance with the Financial Procedure Rules. Where an officer sought approval for a waiver or exemption under the Contract Procedure Rules, this was also included in the Procurement Schedule.

 

The Procurement Schedule for 2021/22 was attached at Appendix 1 to the report and had also been considered by the Overview and Scrutiny Committee and Cabinet. Cabinet had recommended the Procurement Schedule 2021/22 to Council for approval.

 

Councillor Jarvis proposed the recommendation contained in the report and this was seconded by Councillor Lamb.

RESOLVED – That:-

 

(1)   The Procurement Schedule for 2021/22 attached at Appendix 1 are approved; and

 

(2)   The changes to Procurement in line with Brexit, be noted.
