To approve the procurement of the authorities Financial management system.
Cabinet considered the report and RESOLVED to:
1. Authorise the contract award of the Financial Management IT solution to Unit4 Business Software Limited fora sum not exceeding £2,700,000 for a three-year period commencing on 1st July 2023, with an option to extend for a further year.
To ensure the stability of the organisation facing significant delivery challenges, and to ensure the continued value provided by the previous and current investment for a longer-term contract period.
Go out to market to seek a replacement solution via a competitive tender or mini-competition.
However, given the investment to date, and the current requirement for significant development, the benefits of changing to a new system would disproportionately affect the management of the Councils finances.
