The decision to extend motor insurance in line with the contract for a year for Bristol City Council and Bristol Waste Company.

Alternative options considered:

A full retender of the contract is the alternative option, which has been considered and rejected. On review due to the current market conditions, and price increases in the motor industry in respect of parts and claims costs, as well as advice received from our external insurance advisors, extending the existing contract represents the best value for money at the current time.
