Officer Decisions

Officers exercise delegated decision making powers in respect of both non-executive and executive functions of the Council.

The present Scheme of Delegation from the Leader of the Council, which sets out how executive functions will be discharged, provides for delegated decision making by officers. Appendix 9 of the Constitution sets out the non-executive functions delegated to officers. All executive functions, other than those reserved by Cabinet, may be discharged by officers.

The Chief Executive and Strategic Directors of the Council have established their own sub-schemes of delegation detailing which and how both non-executive and executive functions will be discharged on behalf of the authority.

Decision records for the discharge of functions by officers are published below. These decision records set out the following information:-

RECORD OF OFFICER EXECUTIVE DECISION

Title:

Riverside Gardens, Corporation Street & Upper Millgate Contract Award (Stage 1 Design)

Decision Maker:

(Including Job Title)

Simon Moss

Assistant Director, Planning, Regeneration & Transport

Regeneration & Environment

Specific Delegation:

(If any)

Within the Council’s constitution the Strategic Director for Regeneration and Environment has the following delegated powers: -

 

Contract Standing Orders; Section 41.2:

In relation to their Directorates, each Strategic Director has a general power to make council contracts, including the power to determine select lists of tenderers, to accept tenders and to award contracts.  This is subsequently delegated to Assistant Directors in the sub-scheme of delegation

Brief Description of Decision:

Award to C R Reynolds of the first stage of a two-stage design and build contract for the delivery of works in relation to Riverside Gardens, Corporation Street and Upper Millgate, to undertake detailed design and costing exercise. Outcome production of a Tender Evaluation Report for review before a further decision required to proceed to stage 2, construction.

 

Reasons for the Decision:

Having previously undertaken a competitive tender process for the Riverside Gardens scheme that ended in a failed procurement, the decision to add the Corporation Street/Upper Millgate scheme to make the offer more attractive to the market and explore a way to engage with a contractor via direct award to work up the detailed design and cost was approved.

 

Details of alternative options considered and rejected:

Market engagement with the YORCivil2 Contractors has previously been undertaken and the proceeding tender exercise for Riverside Gardens failed.  Feedback from the contractors who withdrew from the tender highlighted the risks associated with the project design, the level of information provided had not been sufficient for them to adequately quantify some of the risks associated with the project to give a firm construction price at tender stage. 

 

As a result of this feedback, it was proposed that a 2 stage Design and Build direct award from the new Civils framework (YORCivil3) be followed to allow for the designs and costs to be worked up with a contractor for approval before committing to the build.

 

Timings now align allowing the inclusion of the Corporation Street/Upper Millgate scheme into the tender making it more practical and attractive to the market to group them as one contract.

 

Failure to proceed with this appointment will result in delays or failure to deliver the Levelling Up/Future High Streets funded Riverside Gardens, Corporation Street & Upper Millgate scheme.

Title:

Ethical Procurement Policy

 

Decision Maker:

(Including Job Title)

Judith Badger; Strategic Director - Finance & Customer Services

 

Details of Specific Cabinet Delegation

or Delegation contained in the relevant Sub-Scheme of Delegation.

 

The Strategic Director of Finance and Customer Services has delegated functions, as set out within the Council’s Constitution, Responsibility for Functions (Appendix 9), section 4C5 – 3.

Decision:

To approve the updated and refreshed Ethical Procurement Policy

 

Reasons for the Decision:

The Ethical Procurement Policy was first approved in Cabinet in January 2020, and was due for a review inline with corporate procedures (3-yearly).

The policy has been brought up to date in terms of:

-       Removal of references to the EU Treaty following the UK’s exit from the European Union.

-       Updates to the Council’s actions regarding support to the Charter for Sustainable British Steel.

-       Removing reference to the previous Safeguarding Policy and acknowledging the new Safeguarding Protocol.

-       Removing reference to the previous Equality and Diversity Policy and acknowledging the new Equality, Diversity and Inclusion Strategy.

-       Reference to OSMB spotlight review on Modern Slavery

-       Documenting that the Council is now accredited with the Real Living Wage Foundation;

-       Including the new Council Motion to declare a Nature Crisis.

-       Including the new Council motion relating to Fair Tax.

-       Updates under the case study section.

 

Details of alternative options considered and rejected:

However, these are all currently captured in separate policy statements, Council motions, and Cabinet decisions. The aim of this Ethical Procurement Policy is to pull all the policy decisions agreed via Cabinet decisions or Council motions into one overarching document.  Therefore, there are no alternative options, as these will have been considered when the individual decisions had taken place.

Conflicts of interest declared by any Cabinet Member consulted by the decision maker which relates to the decision:

No conflicts of interest.

18/12/2023 - Tenant Federation Contract Re-Tender 2024 ref: 1652    Recommendations Approved

Agree a tenant federation contract with a chosen provider, on a 3-year term with the option for a 1-year extension.

RECORD OF OFFICER EXECUTIVE DECISION

 

Date of Decision:

18/12/23

Title:

Tenant Engagement Service Contract Re-tender 2024

 

Decision Maker:

(Including Job Title)

James Clark, Assistant Director of Housing 

 

 

Details of Specific Cabinet Delegation

or Delegation contained in the relevant Sub-Scheme of Delegation.

 

SECTION 4C3: STRATEGIC DIRECTOR OF ADULT CARE, HOUSING AND PUBLIC HEALTH – DELEGATED EXECUTIVE FUNCTIONS

2. Housing

(b) Contract and Service Development

(c) Housing and Estates

Sub-Scheme of Delegation: Assistant Director of Housing: In accordance with Financial and Procurement Procedure Rules, matters relating to the specification for works, goods and services, the seeking of estimates, quotations and tenders, the evaluation of the same and acceptance of tenders relating to contracts for works, goods and services in accordance with approved budgets or supplementary estimates.

Decision:

The Assistant Director of Housing authorises the re-procurement of the Tenant Federation Contract, commencing on the 1st of April 2024 for an initial period of 3 years with the option to extend the contract for another year.

 

The value of the contract (inclusive of VAT):

£888,000 (Full 4 – year term)

£666,000 (Initial 3 -year term)

£222,000 (Annual Value)

 

Reasons for the Decision:

On the 15th of August 2023, the Directorate Leadership Team agreed that a re-tender exercise to appoint a Tenant Engagement Service provider would commence and the successful organisation would be appointed to deliver the new contract from the 1st of April 2024.

 

On the 1st of September 2023, the Cabinet Member for Housing and the Leader approved this decision.

Details of alternative options considered and rejected:

Option 1 - Bring the contracted and outsourced functions back in-house, investing the current contract budgetary value in staffing resources.

 

Option 2 - Commission additional services through our arrangements with the Neighbourhoods Team.

 

Both of the above options would in effect mean insourcing the tenant federation contract work, rather than re-tendering, which would have the following drawbacks:

 

Insourcing could mean that Tenant Engagement becomes less independent, that vital community knowledge and relationships are lost and that we no longer have the advantage of partnering with a smaller more agile organisation, able to apply for additional funding streams as required and work with tenants with a greater degree of flexibility.

 

The re-mobilisation costs and the additional work and resource needed to insource at a challenging time for the team would have caused huge disruption at a time when the Council were entering into a new housing inspection regime environment and the Tenant Engagement Team were working at capacity to achieve TPAS exemplar re-accreditation in 2024 and deliver the Tenant Engagement Framework outcomes.

 

Conflicts of interest declared by any Cabinet Member consulted by the decision maker which relates to the decision:

None known.

Further informal consultations were undertaken regarding the location marked as “1” on Appendix 2, however the following objections were received: -

·       The proposed crossing is too close to a residential property, which would be affected by the flashing belisha beacons.

·       Drivers exiting Wadsworth Road may not see pedestrians on the crossing.

·       Elderly residents from The Lings would have difficulties crossing Wadsworth Road.

·       Pedestrians on the south side of Wadsworth Road may still not use the crossing, when walking to the Broadlands estate.

 

A further location marked as “2” on Appendix 2 was also investigated, but this was rejected due to the presence of Statutory Undertakers apparatus in the road surface, and a number of large telecoms cabinets located in the grass verge on the east side of Flash Lane.
