Extension to Fuel Card Contract

Fuel cards are used in County Council vehicles to allow staff to draw fuel from most fuel stations whilst on Council business.


The initial period of the current contract for the provision of fuel cards will expire on 22 March 2021.  This formed part of Decision OKD05 19/20 . The terms of the current agreement allow for the contract to be extended for a period of up to 24 months, until 22 March 2023.


It is proposed that the Council takes the 2-year extension in order to:


1. Maintain business continuity and;

2. Ensure the contract arrangement with the provider remains co-terminus with partners with whom the Council has aggregated its requirement to ensure best value.


The total value of the proposed contract extension is approximately £840,000.
