II.1.5)Short description of the contract or purchase(s)

LGSS is a jointly owned shared service formed by Cambridgeshire County Council (CCC) and Northamptonshire County Council (NCC) in October 2010 through the merger of their corporate services into a single entity. LGSS is one of the UK’s largest shared services ventures of its kind and is already delivering improved value to a wide range of customers across the public sector through sharing resources, process redesign and shared exploitation of technology. The aim of LGSS is to continue to expand the number of customers utilising our services, which will further exploit the economies of scale across the wider public sector.
This procurement process is to identify and appoint a framework of 10 to 12 Service Providers to provide a complete asbestos removal service in respect of both of the Council’s property portfolios. The full range of Asbestos removal Services includes encapsulation, environmental clean, asbestos waste collection. Service providers will be required to offer the full range of Services. These requirements will not be divided into Lots; the requirement is for all providers on the framework to provide the full range of services specified.
Cambridgeshire County Council owns or occupies/operates around 1 000 sites across the County, including 250 schools, c.500 corporate sites (including libraries, community buildings and offices) and c.250 County Farms. Northamptonshire County Council owns or occupies/operates around 1 200 sites across the County, including 356 schools, c.200 corporate sites (including libraries, community buildings and offices). Many of these buildings may contain asbestos in one form or another.
The requirements of the Authorities will be used to establish a framework of service providers which will be effective for 3 years from August 2015 to August 2018 (with the option to extend by up to 12 months).
It is difficult to predict the exact value of this contract as the Authorities’ property portfolios are likely to vary over the contract term, but it is estimated that the total value is not expected to be less than 1 000 000 GBP or greater than 1 500 000 GBP; however these figures are given as a guide only and not guaranteed.
The above figures are calculated by allocating the estimated (but not guaranteed) spends of Cambridgeshire and Northamptonshire County Councils (or customers using the services of the Councils) equating to approximately 125 000 GBP pa each, with an allowance of an additional 500 000 GBP pa (also not guaranteed) from other bodies accessing this framework. Access to this framework by such bodies shall solely be controlled and managed by LGSS, and the successful providers shall not accept any instructions under this framework other than from LGSS.
It should be stressed that there is no guarantee of any body other than the 2 named County Councils above accessing these contracts, and that the figures given are for indicative purposes only.
Tenderers should note that the estimated annual spend figures given above are only estimates and spend may vary and no guarantee of any or any particular volume of work is given. This Framework is open to all of LGSS including:
i. Partners and other organisations delegating services and or functions to LGSS (currently Cambridgeshire County Council, Northamptonshire County Council, Norwich City Council and Northampton Borough Council) who participate in LGSS’ shared services venture;
ii. Existing and new customers of LGSS;
iii. Any city, district, borough or other local authority within the counties of any LGSS partner authority (currently Cambridgeshire County and Northamptonshire County)including Northamptonshire Partnership Homes;
iv. Any companies or organisations set up by participants in LGSS;
v. Any school, academy, university or other educational establishment within the counties of any LGSS partner authority (currently Cambridgeshire County and Northamptonshire County); and;
