The Corporate Director – Resources reminded members that on 15 May 2014 Cabinet agreed to commence a full EU compliant procurement process to establish a new framework agreement for the Supply and Distribution of Furniture (the Framework). The report before members sough the approval of to award the Framework. The Framework had been created to allow Cumbria County Council to have access to high quality Furniture and had had been broken into three main lots to ensure all of the Councils needs were covered which enabled and encouraged both local and Small Medium Enterprises to also bid.
The Framework was due to commence on the 1 November 2014 and would end on the 31 March 2017 (with an optional 1 year extension until 31 March 2018). The total value of the Framework would be in the region of £1m over the contract period and therefore required Cabinet approval under the Contract Procedure Rules.
RESOLVED, that the award of the framework agreement for the Supply of Furniture to the suppliers identified in Appendix 1 for the period 1 November 2014 to 31 March 2017 (with an optional extension to 31 March 2018) be authorised.
