Decision Maker: Chief Executive

Decision status: Recommendations Approved

Is Key decision?: No

Is subject to call in?: No


To direct award a CCTV camera on Main Street, Burton Joyce with Central Security Systems Ltd for a value of £10,261.73, plus £2,200.00 for the base for the CCTV to stand on, in accordance with Rule 35.3(iv) of the Council’s Contract and Procurement Rules.


It is recommended that the Director of Corporate Resources in consultation with the Council’s Chief Financial Officer and Monitoring Officer approves the direct award for a CCTV camera installation to be placed on Main Street, Burton Joyce valued at £12,461.73 in accordance with Rule 35.3(viii) of the Councils Contract and Procurement Rules. Gedling Borough Council have an installation and maintenance contract with Central Security Systems and this CCTV Camera installation will be part of this existing contract.

Reasons for the decision:

A key aim of the CCTV camera on Main Street in Burton Joyce is to prevent and deter crime and disorder.

As Gedling Borough Council already have a Contract with Central Security Systems, this installation will ensure consistency with the works previously undertaken by the contractor concerned. E.g., laying of cables and installation of transmitters to connect to the Council’s existing Central CCTV operation room within this recommendation. Central Security Systems will provide the necessary works and the future maintenance of this camera (see quote attached).

Alternative options considered:

The alternative would be to undertake a competitive procurement procedure which would then require a new maintenance quote from another provider which will not fit in with the working arrangements of the current CCTV cameras working in Gedling Borough presently. Consequences for such a delay may impact on the recording of potential acts of ASB in the Burton Joyce area and on the recording of acts of crime both in terms of the perpetrator and the victim which would serve to cause reputational damage to the council.
