The Cabinet Member for Enforcement and Community Safety presented a report on the proposed procurement of cashless parking and a parking noticing system from a single supplier.
It was noted that the Council’s cashless parking contract had expired, and the parking noticing system could be replaced without penalties being incurred under the contract. In view of the enhancements in technology since the existing arrangements were commissioned, officers had reviewed the options for an alternative IT system(s) and the proposal was to use a single supplier for both cashless parking and a parking noticing system, bringing the advantage of two closely integrated systems and a potential cost saving.
Cabinet resolved to:
(i) Agree the procurement of a cashless parking and a parking noticing system from a single supplier via the Traffic Management Technology 2 (RM1089) LOT 15 Crown Commercial Service G-Cloud framework, in accordance with the strategy set out in the report; and
(ii) Authorise the Operational Director of Enforcement and Community Safety, in consultation with the Cabinet Member for Enforcement and Community Safety, the Director of Law and Governance and the Chief Operating Officer, to approve the final procurement strategy, conduct the procurement and award and enter into the contract(s) and all other necessary or ancillary agreements with the successful bidder(s), in accordance with the strategy set out in the report.
