Following a full procurement exercise, Ark Property Centre will be appointed as the managing agent for Welland Homes’ stock. The procurement exercise was based on a 70/30 split of quality (70%) and cost (30%). To establish quality, bidders were asked to summarise and evidence their experience of managing stock, minimising voids, providing excellent customer service and supporting the company to grow.

Reasons for the decision:

Ark Property Centre’s bid complied with the specification and was the highest scoring submission. In accordance with public procurement rules the contract should be awarded to them.

Alternative options considered:

Not to enter into a contract with Ark Property Centre.
In this event, a further procurement exercise would be undertaken to identify a suitable managing agent.

Conflict of Interest: None

Equalities Issues: N/A
