Archaeology for A582 Direct Award

Decision Maker: Director of Environment and Planning

Decision status: Recommendations Approved

Is Key decision?: No

Purpose:

An approval is required to conduct a direct award as allowed for under Section 14.1 of the County Council's Procurement Rules for the provision of archaeology investigation to Oxford Archaeology. Oxford Archaeology worked on the A582 dualing archaeology investigation that was paused. The proposed works on Croston Road and Stanifield Lane junctions requires an archaeology investigation and this would be picking up work that was paused from the A582 dualing.

Decision:

Niamh O'Sullivan, Planning Delivery Team Leader, took a decision to conduct a direct award as allowed for under Section 14.1 of the County Council's Procurement Rules for the provision of archaeology investigation to Oxford Archaeology.  The organisation has been selected to complete the services due to their previous and ongoing knowledge of the site and services to be provided. The previous contract we had with Oxford Archaeology expired but was well within the agreed budget as works had been paused from the A582 Dualing. The contract is to be awarded for a period of up to 30 months commencing on 20 May 2024. The estimated value of the contract to be let under a direct award is up to £5140.

 

Divisions Affected: Lostock Hall & Bamber Bridge; Moss Side & Farington;
