Report by Director of Scotland Excel.  (not available - copy to follow)
There was submitted a report by the Director of Scotland Excel relative to a new collaborative framework for the provision of contractors to renew traditional lighting luminaires with energy efficient LED luminaires.

The report intimated that the framework would cover all of the works necessary to renew traditional street lighting luminaires and would facilitate the efficient appointment of suitably qualified contractors to ensure that Councils were able to deliver the benefits that energy efficient lighting could provide in terms of energy, carbon reduction and maintenance savings.

The report detailed that the framework was advertised at a value of £20 million over a four year period (£5 million per annum) and there had been 15 tender responses received. A full evaluation of the offers received had been completed and Appendix 3 to the report advised the scores achieved by each bidder. Based on the evaluation undertaken, and in line with the criteria and weightings set out within the report and the published tender documents, it was recommended that the a multi-supplier framework agreement be awarded to the 13 suppliers as outlined in Appendix 3 to the report.

The results of the benchmarking were listed in Appendix 1 to the report. The projected average saving was estimated at 27.45% and based on anticipated annual replacement volumes equated to an estimated total saving of approximately £0.35 to £0.4 million per annum. Of the 32 Scottish Councils, Glasgow City Council had indicated that they would not participate and North Lanarkshire, Scottish Borders, Fife, West Dunbartonshire and Dumfries and Galloway Councils had indicated that they were unlikely to participate.

DECIDED: That the award of the multi-supplier framework agreement to the 13 suppliers, as detailed in Appendix 3 to the report, be approved.
Report by Director of Scotland Excel.  (not available - copy to follow)

DECIDED: That the application by CultureNL to become an associate member of Scotland Excel be approved, under North Lanarkshire Council’s annual requisition fee, subject to completion and signing of the agreement document, be approved.
