Decision details

Contract extension for the COVID-19 Marshals (ODD/142/2021)

Decision Maker: Executive Director Adults and Communities

Decision status: Recommendations Approved

Is Key decision?: No

Is subject to call in?: No


To extend the provision of COVID-19 Marshals for until 31 March 2022 using the current provider.


Reasons for the decision:

To support our response to the COVID-19 pandemic District Enforcement provide COVID-19 Marshals and are also a resourcing service in relation to enforcement officers in the Area Councils. COVID-19 Marshals already cover a wide range of COVID-19 duties, understand our local communities and COVID-19 response requirements.  Marshals are already trained on key elements of relevant regulations and equipped to respond. 


Alternative options considered:

There is significant urgency in maintaining resources to manage actions in line with the COVID-19 Roadmap and limited time to conduct a procurement process so District Enforcement will continue to provide those resources.
