LED PHASE 2 PROJECT – CONTRACT AWARD AND APPOINTMENT OF SPECIALIST ADVISORS TO PROVIDE PROJECT MANAGEMENT SUPPORT

Further to the report to Cabinet on 16th July 2018 that gained approval for the funding and procurement strategy to deliver the LED Phase 2 Street Lighting project (Minute 9 refers), this report seeks approval to award the construction contract to the preferred tenderer as well as approval to appoint professional advisors to provide project management support.

In the absence of a Cabinet meeting during August and bearing in mind the urgent timescale for progressing with this contract award, it is proposed that this decision is made by the Leader of the Council.

The LED Phase 2 Street Lighting project directly supports the Wirral Plan Pledge to ‘deliver transport and technology infrastructure fit for the future’ and is a Key Decision affecting all Wards on the Forward Plan.
