Decision details

Contract for the Provision of Milk, Bread and Morning Goods

Decision Maker: Cabinet

Decision status: Recommendations Approved

Is Key decision?: Yes

Is subject to call in?: Yes


A report of the Director of Finance sought the Cabinet’s approval to the extension of a contract for the provision of milk, bread and morning goods to 31 August 2012.  This was in order to coincide with a number of other contracts for the supply of catering services which expired in 2012.  This would present an opportunity for the Council to make procurement savings through greater aggregation by contracting with one large supplier on a ‘one-stop-shop’ basis.


It was proposed that a full review of catering provision be undertaken in 2012 in accordance with the Commissioning and Procurement Strategies agreed by the Cabinet on 2 June 2011. (Minute No. 8 refers).




(1)  the contract for the provision of milk, bread and morning goods be extended to 31 August 2012; and


(2)  a Council-wide commissioning and procurement review of catering services be conducted.
