Contractor Procurement Update


RG stated that the negotiations with Durkan are frustratingly still on-going and had not as hoped been completed and there will be a delay of around   3-4 months whilst the Council is acting in the best practice procurement and due process to ensure that there is no risk to the programme or compromise to the quality of delivery.


The Regeneration team will be exploring how much design development work can be done ahead of completion of negotiations.


Reasons for the need for care at this stage is the volatility in supply chain and materials needs to be de-risked.  This may have an impact on price.
