This report requested the Cabinet’s agreement to approve the contract award for the HRA Gas Servicing contract.


The report set out that the new contract would provide a fully encompassing repairs and maintenance service to the Council’s housing stock. It would also mark the beginning of the Housing Revenue Account’s journey to meet energy efficiency targets and would assist the service in ensuring it met the requirements of the housing regulators consumer standards.


The report had previously been considered by the Procurement Board, which had recommended it to the Cabinet for approval. A Diversity Impact Assessment had been carried out and was attached as Appendix 1 to the report. An exempt Appendix to the report set out financial analysis in relation to the procurement and recommended the provider the contract should be awarded to.








The Cabinet approved the contract award for the HRA Gas Servicing contract to Swale Heating Ltd, in accordance with paragraph 3.2 of the exempt appendix on the basis that they had tendered submissions that had been evaluated and determined as the most economically advantageous against the Council’s award criteria as per the evaluation spreadsheet contained within 3.1 of the Exempt Appendix.




The recommendations contained within the report were provided on the basis that the current contract would cease on 31 August 2024 and could not be extended. Failure to provide a gas servicing contract would mean that the Council could not meet its statutory obligations in terms of maintenance of its stock.
