The Police and Crime Commissioner for Cleveland procured the Vehicle Recovery and Disposal Managed Services with The Automobile Association.
This was via a Collaborative Framework with The Police and Crime Commissioners from Surrey and Sussex in 2012 as a Contract Participant.
The Current contract includes a referral fee back on to the PCC of £20 per recovery which is paid monthly. Based on 4,010 recoveries during previous 12 month period saw an income of approximately £80,200.
The Joint Procurement Service of Surrey and Sussex has established this Framework Agreement via a fully EU compliant competition.
During negotiation, the PCCs of Surrey and Sussex have made a few significant changes to the Framework Agreement.
All of these changes are non-negotiable by the Contract Participants, and are detailed in the accompanying Procurement Report.
The Framework Agreement term is for three years with the option to extend by 12 additional months. This makes the maximum possible Framework Agreement term four years.
However, Contract Participants have the option of a five-year term and split as a 3 + 2 and thus the Call Off Contract end date is after the end date of the Framework Agreement.
