13/07/2021 - Accessible Oldham Strategic Partnership ref: 4251    Recommendations Approved

The Transportation and Planning Team in collaboration with Unity Partnership have successfully bid for several capital funded multi-disciplinary highway improvement programme of work, namely Growth Deal 3 (GD3) and Mayor’s Cycling and Walking Challenge Fund (MCF). The funds (cumulatively amounting to circa £16.5m) are managed by Transport for Greater Manchester (TfGM) under the overarching administration of Department for Transport (DfT).
For Oldham Council to deliver the programme it was considered necessary to seek a mid-term (4 years) Strategic Partner (Partner) to assist the Delivery Team at key stages of the bidding, design and construction work. The current method of delivery of the highway construction work can take upwards of 12 weeks from tender stage to commencement on site. In order to deliver the GD3 and MCF programme within the set timeframe, a more streamlined method of procuring construction work is required.
The intention is that individual projects will be procured via a Call Off procedure under the Strategic Partnership Agreement. This will require Director sign off (in liaison with the Directors of Finance and Legal Services) rather than an individual Cabinet report for each element of work.
