Decision:

Having fully considered all of the available information, I have decided to reject the alternative options and take the recommended decision to:

 

Delegate authority to the Chief Fire Officer

 

1. To conduct a legally compliant competitive tender process for the purpose of awarding a contract for the provision of support to refugees in Gloucestershire arriving under the UK Resettlement Scheme or a period

of 3 years, with an option to extend by a further 1+1 years

 

2. Upon the conclusion of the competitive tender process, to award such contract to the successful bidder

 

3. In consultation with the Cabinet Member: Public Protection, Parking and Libraries, to exercise the option to extend the contract by a further 1+1 years on completion of the initial 3 year term.

 

For the reasons set out in the report.
