Is Key decision?: No

Is subject to call in?: Yes




That the Cabinet agree to extend the current contracts with the providers set out in Appendix 1 for the Provision of Managed Transportation Services for Adults, Children, Looked After Children and Young People with Special Educational Needs and Adult Social Care Clients to the London Borough of Hillingdon for four months from 28 March 2023 to 28 July 2023 at a total cost of c.2.94m


Reasons for decision


The Cabinet Member for Children, Families & Education introduced the report, which Cabinet agreed, to extend the current transportation providers for home-to-school transport for a short period of time to minimise disruption to children this academic year and enable the new procurement arrangements to come into effect from the September 2023 term after the school holidays.


Alternative options considered and rejected


None, as there would have been disruption to the service impacting users, as the Council moved to the new procurement arrangements.
