Decision status: Recommendations Approved

Is Key decision?: No

Is subject to call in?: No

Purpose:

Because bids were not appended to the Cabinet reports against which these decisions were made, it has not previously been stated how the funding received will be divided between the two bus operating companies who are BCC’s partners in this project.

Decision:

* That the £2,214,800 funding received by Bristol City Council under the Clean Bus Technology Fund from national government’s JAQU (Joint Air Quality Unit) will be divided between First West of England and CTPlus bus operating companies according to the allocations approved in the bid, and for those specific pieces of work.
* The amount due to First is £2,020,800. Of this total, £922,800 was transferred in August 2018. A further transfer of £1,098,000 will be made in July 2019.
* The amount due to CTPlus is £194,000, of which £171,180 was transferred in August 2018.
* A further £2.48m of funding was granted as an extension of the above funding in March 2019. It is anticipated that £2,431,330 of this funding will be allocated to First Bus with £57,000 being allocated to CT Plus during the 2019-20 financial year.
* Both proposals have been approved by BCC Cabinet.

Alternative options considered:

Option 1 - There are no alternative options because the way the project is currently being managed is as agreed in the bid.
