Urgent Decision - Funding awarded by the Department for Levelling Up, Homes and Communities

For Information


Urgent Decision – Wavier signed by the Leader and Deputy Leader.


Funding of £150k awarded to Teignbridge on behalf of the LAs by the Department for Levelling Up, Homes and Communities (DHLUC) under their Local Digital Fund to deliver an alpha project in 12 weeks to test feasibility of a Revenue and Benefits open source system. This is continuation of funding from the last Local Digital Fund project to complete the discovery work for this project where Made Tech tendered under a framework and were awarded the contract for the technical feasibility of the project.


The reasons for the Waiver were

-Timescale for delivery-12 weeks is insufficient time to procure a partner and deliver the project

-It is a continuation of the previous project which Made Tech tendered for previously and hence the work they have undertaken previously and their background knowledge of the project will aid delivery of this next phase
