Decision details

Approval to award contract for Traffic Regulation Order Consultancy

Decision Maker: Assistant Director - Corporate and Contracted Services

Decision status: Recommendations Approved

Is Key decision?: No

Is subject to call in?: No


The Council needs to comply with legislation and consult when looking to introduce new or ammend existing traffic regulation orders. The existing contract is coming to a natural conclusion and there is a requirement to tender this contract.
The Council can introduce Traffic Regulation Orders (TROs) under licence from Hertfordshire County Council, the Highway Authority. All waiting restriction schemes are subject to their approval and, as a minimum, must comply with their standards. This contract is for an end-to-end, proposal to install a TRO service with minimal intervention required by the Council between consultations. Members will review consultation reports and instruct the consultancy via Parking Service Officers as to their decisions concerning the progress of any scheme after each consultation report is submitted.
This contract will run as a call-off contract, therefore spend against this contract will be active if and when a requirement for this service is requested.
This tender was advertised as an Open (above threshold value) process on the Supply Hertfordshire portal and on Contracts Finder in accordance with the Public Contract Regulations 2015. Three tender submissions were received and ADL provided the highest scoring tender on evaluation.


Decision: The approval to award contract for Traffic Regulation Order Consultancy for an 4 year period (plus option to extend for an additional 3 years) to ADL Traffic

Alternative options considered:

None, there is a legal requirement to undertake consultation when introducing new traffic regulation orders. The existing contract was coming to an end and therefore a new contract was required to be tendered.
