Decision Maker: Adur Cabinet Member for Adur Homes and Customer Services

Decision status: Recommendations Approved

Is Key decision?: Yes

Is subject to call in?: Yes

Decision:

I agree the following:-

·         To approve a direct award to FFT via the SEC framework for delivering the comprehensive review and assessment of the properties identified with E,F,G rated EPC’s and no record of primary heat source.

·         To note that FFT are the number one supplier on the framework, and their rates have been checked to ensure they are in line.

·         To note that the framework tender was evaluated in accordance with (MEAT) Most Economic Advantageous Tender, with the apportionment set as 40% cost, 60% quality.

Reasons for the decision:

Following a review of data it has been identified that there are around 53 properties which are not recorded as having any primary heat source. Their heating is provided by gas fires which have been decommissioned. At present we are unable to obtain any grant funding as we do not comply with the requirements under PAS2035 due to lack of key roles such as Retrofit assessors and Retrofit coordinators. Faithorn Farrell Timms will cover our surveying requirements as well as act in the assessor and coordinator roles.

Alternative options considered:

To do nothing. However this will disadvantage us in any proposals to obtain grant funding for energy efficiency improvements in our domestic dwellings.
