Decision published: 10/09/2021

Effective from: 21/09/2021


To ensure continued compliance with the Decent Homes Regulatory Standard Somerset West and Taunton Council (SWT) has a need to implement a long-term programme (two years plus an option for two one year extensions) to install replacement kitchens and bathrooms to the domestic properties in its ownership. The requirement extends to include the same works to void properties on an ad-hoc basis.


A compliant procurement exercise has been undertaken, utilising a framework arrangement, and a contractor selected as the preferred bidder following a tender evaluation.  The estimated total contract value is approximately £4 million (2021-2023).


It is recommended that SWT awards the contract with the preferred bidder.
