Decision details

Revision of the Council's Contract Procedure Rules

Decision Maker: Cabinet,

Decision status: Recommendations approved

Is Key decision?: No

Is subject to call in?: Yes


A report by the Director Law, HR and Asset Management related to the revision of the Council’s Contract Procedure Rules (CPR) which was undertaken in pursuance of the action plan agreed with the Audit Commission following the review of the HESPE procurement exercise.


The draft CPR had been sent to the Audit Commission for comment but unfortunately the Commission had been unable to provide its response until mid afternoon on the day of this meeting.


The Audit Commission had made some suggestions and comments on the draft CPR and it would seem sensible that officers be afforded sufficient time to first consider these suggestions and comments before the Cabinet approved any revision to CPR.


It was therefore proposed that the Cabinet defer this item of business to the next Cabinet meeting to be held on 1 September 2011.


The CPR formed part of the Constitution and therefore would require approval by the Council.  The proposed deferment would not affect the timetable for when the Council approval would be sought.




That consideration of this report be deferred to the next meeting scheduled for 1 September 2011.
