Minutes:

Cabinet considered proposals for the procurement of a CCTV installation, repair and preventative maintenance contract. Thanet District Council was committed to improving the environment and improving community safety. Directly relating to this commitment was the Council's ability to reduce crime and the impact of criminality on the district and address anti-social behaviour and related fly tipping complaints. An operational CCTV system was central to delivering this commitment with 533 CCTV cameras across towns, housing stock and council owned sites.

 

The current CCTV contract that covered installations, planned and preventative maintenance that was awarded through a Crown Commercial Service Framework was due to expire. The Council would like to make use of Crown Commercial Service Framework again as the method to procure services for CCTV in relation to Public Space Surveillance Systems along with housing CCTV and council building CCTV.

 

The value of the contract under the duration of terms was £650,000 (six hundred and fifty thousand pounds). Cabinet was asked to exercise its powers and approve the recommendation for use of a Crown Commercial Service Framework as the method to place a direct award to British Telecommunications plc in relation to CCTV services inclusive of installations and Repairs/Maintenance for a minimum period of three years.

 

Councillor Keen proposed, Councillor Yates seconded and Cabinet agreed that the use of Crown Commercial Service Framework (RM3808) LOT 12 be agreed as the method to place a direct award to British Telecommunications plc in relation to CCTV services around Public Space Surveillance Systems/ housing stock CCTV and corporate asset CCTV inclusive of installations and Repairs/Maintenance for a minimum period of 3 years.
