Decision on contract extension of VAWG community provision under waiver

Intention to extend Gaia Centre contract under waiver from 1 April 2016 until 31 March 2017. The waiver value is just over 500k and so this will need to be approved by Procurement Board (PB) and placed on Forward Plan.


We will also be requesting permission to extend our refuge provision, under waiver, for one more year.


Re-commissioning of all VAWG provision is due to commence in Summer 2016 with new contracts in place by 1 April 2017.
