Issue details

Approval of increased levels of liability and insurance - KEY/10JUN19/03

Appendix 1 is exempt as the information contains commercial terms proposed and under negotiation between the Council and Serco Limited (reference paragraph 3 of Schedule 12 A of the Local Government Act 1972) and a background context which is commercially sensitive to the contractor.


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 do so could compromise the Council’s and the Contractor’s position in negotiating future contracts.


The Cabinet Member:


1.    Approved the new contractual terms provisionally negotiated between Peterborough City Council and Serco Limited in relation the respective parties’ liabilities under new data protection legislation (the General Data Protection Regulation 2016/679 and the Data Protection Act 2018).


2.    Amended the corporate services agreement between the Council and Serco Ltd to incorporate the new terms.
