In February 2017, the Cabinet Member for Finance (on behalf of the Cabinet Member for Residents’ Services) delegated authority to the Executive Director of Economy, Infrastructure and Environment to award the Refuse Derived Fuel (RDF) Contract. Decision RS14(16/7).
The RDF Contract was procured with an initial contract term of five years with an option to extend the RDF Contract in minimum increments of whole calendar years, for up to a further five calendar years.
The initial five-year term is not due to expire until April 2023. West Sussex County Council can extend the RDF contract on the same terms and conditions and there is a contractual requirement to inform the contractor, no later than 12 months prior to expiry, whether or not the contract will be extended.
The Director of Environment and Public Protection will be asked to extend the RDF Contract by 12 months from April 2023.
