Exemption from Tender - Variation to Existing Construction Services Contract for Joynton Avenue and Zetland Avenue

Decision Maker: Council

Decision status: Recommendations Determined


It is resolved that:

(A)      Council approve an exemption from tender for the provision of construction services and approve the increase of contract contingency for the Joynton Avenue and Zetland Avenue, Zetland project due to extenuating circumstances;

(B)      Council note the reasons a satisfactory outcome would not be achieved by inviting tenders are:

(i)         a contractor for the construction works has already been appointed in accordance with the City's procurement processes; and

(ii)        the additional cost required to establish another contractor on site is not considered value for money;

(C)      Council approve a transfer of surplus funds from the Zetland East budget to cover a shortfall in the Joynton Avenue budget, noting these two projects have been combined into a single construction contract; and

(D)      authority be delegated to the Chief Executive Officer to negotiate, execute and administer any documentation required for the purpose of effecting the increase to the contract contingency referred to in (A) above.

Carried unanimously.
