31/03/2021 - Lambeth Safer Communities services – contract variations to value and length of contract ref: 7804    Recommendations Approved

Existing services are in place. Proposed to vary all contract under this portfolio to extend for one year (plus the option to extend for one further year) with the same terms and conditions and specifications. Services are 89% grant funded and all available future grant funders have been delayed in confirming their funding envelopes due to Covid-19 and have now confirmed funding for one year only. Holding a competitive procurement process for one year of funding is not feasible in the time frame. Alongside this, it is proposed that two contract values are varied to reflect increased costs and pooled budgets from partnership contributions.
