The proposed individual is well qualified with
considerable experience in similar roles and projects.
The fee the individual has been secured on was competitively tendered under the Strategic Capital Partnership procurement process and is value for money. The successful implementation is a key Council priority.
In March 2021 Cabinet approved submission of a
Full Business Case to the Joint Air Quality Unit (JAQU) to
implement a Clean Air Zone D (CAZ) for Bristol City Centre. This is
expected to be approved by Ministers after recommendation from the
JAQU Board during September 2021. The FBC includes funding for the
delivery of the CAZ Enabling Technology and Clean Air Fund of
£46m for the delivery of mitigation measures.
The Council require an experienced Programme Lead who can ensure delivery and implementation of the programme to be completed and operational by summer 2022.
This decision is to approve ‘calling off’ the Programme Lead from the Strategic Capital Partnership, procured by Bristol City Council in Feb 2021. The ‘call off’ complies with public procurement regulations and demonstrates a value for money route to securing a suitable resource for the role. The resource will be funded from the Exec Director for Growth
Option 1 - No suitable resource was available
with the organisation. A new competitive process to secure resource
was considered. It was recognised there is pressure on labour in
the market and due to time constraints, the availability of
high-quality resource and benchmarkable value for money, using the
Strategic Capital Partnership was the appropriate route to secure
resource for the role.
