The attached exempt annex is NOT FOR PUBLICATION in accordance with paragraph 3 of Schedule 12A of Part 1 of the Local Government Act 1972 in that it contains information relating to business and financial affairs, namely details of the prices submitted by unsuccessful bidders.
The public interest test has been applied to the information contained within the exempt annex and it is considered that the need to retain the information as exempt outweighs the public interest in disclosing it because to disclose it could prejudice the Council in any future procurement of these services.
With the approval of the Chairman of the Growth, Environment and Resources Scrutiny Committee Special Urgency and waiver of call-in procedures have been invoked to suspend the requirement to publish the decision for 5 days prior to publication, and to suspend the 3 day call-in period. This is because the contract is required to commence on 1 April 2018 and the letters of engagement will need to be issued prior to that to ensure that suitable adjustments can be made.
The Cabinet Member authorised the award of a new insurance contract to Zurich Municipal for the annual sum of £727,337-06 (inclusive of insurance premium tax). The contract will run from 1 April 2018 to 31 March 2023.
