As this is a direct award OED guidance states,
decisions over £250k need to be approved by an Executive
Fleet Services are seeking to award to
Marshall Toyota a contract to provide 15 new electric vehicles, for
the Centre of Excellence grant funded project.
This purchase is being undertaken in accordance with HCC and TPPL Vehicle Purchase Framework HCC1811097.
A Procurement Officer has been appointed to this project and the process being followed by Fleet Services has been approved by the Procurement Team.
To launch the Centre of excellence project at
the earliest opportunity new electric vehicles are required
urgently. The decision to direct award was made as it was clear a
full tender would not offer a different solution but would delay
the award of the contract to such an extent that the vehicles would
not be available. It is widely recognised there is a global
shortage of new electric vehicles.
