SCHEDULE 12A OF THE LOCAL GOVERNMENT ACT 1972 AND THE LOCAL GOVERNMENT (ACCESS TO INFORMATION) ACT 1985
The Board considered:
1) Whether Members of the press and public should be excluded from the meeting of the Board during consideration of the following item of business in accordance with Sub-Section 4 of Section 100A of the Local Government Act 1972 because it was likely that, in view of the nature of the business to be considered, exempt information would be disclosed, being information defined in Section 100 (1) and paragraph 3 of Schedule 12A of the Local Government Act 1972; and
2) Whether the disclosure of information was in the pubic interest, whether any relevant exemptions were applicable and whether, when applying the public interest test and exemptions, the public interest in maintaining the exemption outweighed that in disclosing the information.
RESOLVED: That as, in all the circumstances of the case, the public interest in disclosing the information, members of the press and public be excluded from the meeting during consideration of the following item of business in accordance with Sub-Section 4 of Section 100A of the Local Government Act 1972 because it was likely that, in view of the nature of the business, exempt information would be disclosed, being information defined in Section 100 (1) and paragraph 3 of Schedule 12A of the Local Government Act 1972.
Mersey Gateway Bridge - The Results of Prequalification
The Board considered a report of the Chief Executive which advised the Members that at the previous meeting on 26 January 2012 consideration had been given to an initial account of the organisations that had sought to prequalify and explained the evaluation procedure leading to the selection of the Candidates that were to be invited to tender for the Project.
The Board was advised that the evaluation of each of the six submissions the Council had received had now been completed and the results were being complied prior to being reported by the Project Director to the Mersey Gateway Officer Project Board (OPB). It was reported that a presentation of the results of the prequalification process by the Project Director would be given at the meeting based on the recommendations agreed by the OPB.
(1) the selection of Candidates, as recommended by the Officer Project Board be endorsed; and
(2) the Chief Executive be instructed to invite the prequalified Candidates to participate in the competitive dialogue procurement process at the earliest opportunity.
