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.
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).
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.
