Is Key decision?: No

Is subject to call in?: No


Project Manager for a successful funding bid to the Heritage Protection Commissions Programme: A fabric type series for medieval and post-medieval pottery in Devon and Cornwall.



That Kate Berlewen be awarded the contract.

Reasons for the decision:

Obtaining three price quotes is not appropriate – This project is wholly funded by Historic England following a successful bid.  NDC are a partner in this project and have agreed to take the secretariat function and will be the employer.  The fund had to set out how the project would progress, which included the provision of a dedicated Project manager.  This project is very specialist and the appointed person would be the most appropriate lead.  She was named in the successful bid along with the costings and on that basis HE have agreed to fund.  There are no NDC monies contributing towards this post but as we will be appointing, it was considered appropriate to complete a waiver.
