Procurement of Replacement Housing Management System
Decision Maker: Cabinet
Decision status: Recommendations Approved
Is Key decision?: No
Is subject to call in?: Yes
The Cabinet was informed that the current provider of the Council’s housing management system had notified both Gravesham Borough Council and Medway Council of its intention to terminate support for the system from September 2020, with a requirement to migrate to the company’s new product.
As this would be a new system with a substantial cost, it was agreed that a joint procurement exercise be undertaken with Medway Council to satisfy European Union Procurement Regulations and to ensure that both Councils were procuring the best system to support its housing management service moving forward.
Members were apprised of all bids received.
Detailed consideration was given to the information contained within the report and questions from Cabinet Members were put to and answered by Officers.
Resolved that delegated authority to award the contract to the bidder identified in the exempt appendix be given to the Director (Housing and Regeneration), in consultation with the Leader of the Executive, Director (Corporate Services), Director (Environment and Operations) and Head of Legal Services, and subject to satisfactory consideration and determination of those issues outlined within paragraph 6.4 of the report.
