The Cabinet Member for Enforcement and Community Safety presented a report on the proposed procurement of traffic enforcement cameras.
The Cabinet Member advised that traffic enforcement cameras had been purchased outright by the Council; however, there was currently no contract in place to purchase new cameras which meant that they were being purchased on an ad-hoc basis. The Council was also not in an annual maintenance agreement with the current supplier. Parking services had soft market tested with potential suppliers and found that the existing cameras could be replaced and maintained, within the cost that the Council paid the current supplier.
Cabinet resolved to:
(i) Agree the procurement of a traffic enforcement camera system via the ESPO 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.
