21/11/2023 - Approval for the Contract Award for the 4-year Lease of Nine (9) Electric Small Vans

Recommendations approved.

 

Reasons for recommendations

1.    Based on the evaluation criteria awarding to Chorley Group provides the best option for the council.

2.    Chorley Group are well equipped to supply and maintain the fleet therefore provide resilience for service delivery.

Other options considered and rejected

1.    Not replacing the small van fleet at all will impact on service delivery across multiple services.

2.    Extending the lease on the current small van fleet for a prolonged duration may lead to increased downtime as the older vehicles are less reliable.

3.    Procuring diesel or petrol vans, instead of electric, will increase the fleet carbon emissions.
