17/07/2024 - Cashless Parking Fees ref: 2243    For Determination

Decision Maker: Cabinet Member for City Management and Air Quality

Decision published: 10/07/2024

Effective from: 25/07/2024

Decision:

Summary of Decision

The Cabinet Member for City Management and Air Quality has approved the introduction of “End-User” charging for future Cashless Parking contracts, as well as the setting of a cap of 30p on End-User charges per transaction with an Officer-led contract mechanism for reviewing and approving any increases in that cap over time to allow for effective contract management and good service-delivery.

 

Reasons for Decision

Currently the City Council absorbs the electronic payment’s transactional charge for those paying to park on street. However, the market has for some time been moving toward charging the customer (the “end user”) rather than the Local Authority. Officers strongly believe that the City Council must move to this model in future Cashless contracts This model will improve the competitive nature of the procurement while offering potential for greater choice for our customers.

 

The City Council’s policies are to encourage the use of active travel and public transport when moving about the City. These policies support greater health and wellbeing through increased activity and reduced pollution and greenhouse gases. While the additional transactional costs as a percentage of the average spend is not considered likely to change behaviour it is not fair to expect residents impacted by the pollution and poor air quality to fund a service dedicated to a type of transport use that the City Council wants to discourage.

The Cabinet Member for Adult Social Care, Public Health and Voluntary Sector has agreed to the below recommendations:

  • To direct award a contract to Thrive Tribe Limited to deliver the Integrated Healthy Lifestyle Service from 1st January 2024 to 31st October 2024 at a cost of £1,720,246
  • A waiver of the requirements under the Procurement Code to conduct a competitive tender exercise regarding the above contract.
  • Further investment of £102,602 into the Integrated Healthy Lifestyle Service, for 6 months, between 1st May to 31st October 2024 to provide an enhance stop smoking offer to be funded from the Local Stop Smoking Service and Support Grant.

 

Reasons for Decision

A direct award is required to allow sufficient time to conclude the procurement process and to mobilise the new contract without disrupting current service delivery. The Office for Health Improvement and Disparity (OHID) has provided additional investment over the next 5 years until 2029, via the LSSSSG, to enhance local stop smoking services and support.  OHID has set an expectation that this enhanced service will commence from 1 April 2024. Thrive Tribe, the incumbent provider, is best placed to incorporate this enhanced offer into the current service without delay.
