20/00011 - HTW Professional Services Framework Contract

Decision Maker: Cabinet Member for Highways and Transport

Decision status: Recommendations Approved

Is Key decision?: Yes

Is subject to call in?: Yes





In order to deliver its duties to the community, HTW requires a professional engineering services contract. Kent needs a flexible, resilient mechanism to seamlessly access a source of multidisciplinary technical expertise to guarantee the timely delivery of projects and schemes for the fulfilment of HTW’s statutory duties as the Highway Authority.


A report is to be presented to the Environment and Transport Cabinet Committee to detail the commissioning project for the provision of these services through a new multi supplier framework contract.


This framework is a multi-supplier (four), multi-disciplinary contract for professional services of zero guaranteed value, although it is estimated that circa £4m of professional services will be commissioned through these arrangements per annum over a maximum period of 4-year period (3 years +1). 




As Cabinet Member for Highways and Transport, I agree to provide the Director of Highways, Transportation & Waste the delegated authority to enter into appropriate contractual arrangements for the provision of technical environmental professional services Framework contract, including any possible future extensions.
