Gateway 1-4 - Computer Equipment Rooms (CER) Uninterrupted Power supplies (UPS) upgrades.

Report of the Director of the Built Environment


The Sub Committee considered a Gateway 1-4 report of the Chamberlain concerning the Computer Equipment Rooms (CER) Uninterrupted Power supplies (UPS) upgrades project. The Chamberlain introduced the report and explained the project for the Sub Committee. The Sub Committee noted that the project had been descoped resulting in a substantive decrease in cost, with the savings to be made available for bids towards other projects.


In response to a question from a Member, the Chamberlain explained the benefits of the change of approach, resulting in the change of scope, and its impact on risk. The Chamberlain advised that the amended proposals represented the best-tailored approach towards risk.


RESOLVED – That the Projects Sub Committee:


a)    Note no budget is required to get to the next Gateway;


b)    Note the total estimated cost of the project at £50,000 (excluding risk);


c)    Approve Option 3 (12.3) Deliver a Re-focussed UPS project, delivering a prioritised UPS estate to priority areas only; and


d)    Note no CRP is requested for this project.
