Record of Individual Cabinet Member Decision - Key Decision - School Swimming

Decision Maker: Cabinet Member - Health and Social Care (Cllr Zahid Chauhan)

Decision status: Recommendations Approved

Is Key decision?: Yes

Is subject to call in?: Yes

Purpose:

Obtain approval for the cost of the transport for the School Swimming Service for a 2 year period

Decision:

RESOLVED - That:
Award Swimming Transport Contract jointly to Yelloway Coaches Ltd and Matthews Travel (KMATTCOACHES).

Reasons for the decision:

Option 1 -
The preferred option would be to award the Swimming Transport Contract jointly to Yelloway Coaches Ltd and Matthews Travel (KMATTCOACHES). An advantage of this option is that the contract is awarded achieving best value to two local suppliers.
Option 2 -
Award whole contract to 1 supplier. This would exclude Matthews Travel (K Matt Coaches) as they do not have the capacity to service the whole contract. It would also not represent Best Value as it would lead to an increase in the contract value.
Option 3 - Do not award the contract, go out to market again and try to open the market further. This option would cause disruption to the service and the new contract is required from 1st April 2019.

Alternative options considered:

Option 2 and 3
