07/06/2021 - Meals on Wheels 2021/22 ref: 10569    Recommendations Approved

Decision Maker: Executive Member (Resources)

Decision published: 07/06/2021

Effective from: 15/06/2021



Recommendations approved.


Reasons for Recommendation(s):

The recommendations are based on a soft market testing exercise which took place in 2019 and identified the current provider as the only contractor able to successfully continue the delivery of the subsidised meals on wheels service in Chorley.


Alternative options considered and rejected:


Undertake a formal procurement exercise to re-tender the service; drawing up an in-depth specification for a long-term contract and inviting organisations to tender via the chest accepting that there may only be one response received (from the current provider).
