Decision Maker: Head of Project Delivery

Decision status: Recommendations Approved

Is Key decision?: No

Is subject to call in?: No


For the Head of Project Delivery, Housing, Regeneration and Planning to vary an existing award of contract to Currie and Brown Limited for the commissioning and delivery of cost consultancy services at Earlham School for an additional cost of £9,700.00. The original value of the contract was £76,291.89, will now be further increased to £85,991.89 when this variation is applied.

Reasons for the decision:

Currie & Brown were appointed in 2019 to carry out cost consultancy services for Building Services Improvements Lot 2 including Earlham Primary School. The total value of this appointment was £76, 291.89.

Additional boundary & external works and a condition and suitability feasibility study of the Year 6 and Catering buildings has been instructed by the Client for Earlham Primary School. As indicated above, Currie & Brown Limited are already appointed and undertaking works on site, so it is considered more expedient and cost effective to vary their existing appointment to cover these additional services. Currie and Brown have agreed to hold their previously tendered fee percentage rates.

Alternative options considered:

The Council do not have the necessary experience, qualifications and experience to manage these surveys. Do nothing would impact on the quality of the feasibility studies and works recommendations.

A further competitive tender exercise is not deemed to offer the councils best value in terms of programme, cost and efficiency.
