Issue details

Variation of Corporate Security Contract to include Vestry Hall

Security at Vestry Hall is currently provided by Kingdom Security but it is unclear how this contract was originally procured and it is necessary to put a compliant contract in place. As the council already has a corporate security provider (Profile Security Services Ltd) we will vary the corporate contract to add Vestry Hall. This will ensure that Vestry Hall security is provided under a compliant contract and avoids the need for a new procurement exercise. Existing staff will be transferred to the new provider through the TUPE process.
As the contract was awarded and is managed by Facilities Management authorisation must be sought from the Chief Executive. The value of the proposed variation is £225,000 but the total value of the contract, including this variation, will be £1,725,000.
