Award of contract
Process for Awarding Lots
In order to ensure security of supply, preserve competition and encourage participation by Small and Medium size Enterprises (SMEs), the Client intends to limit the number of Lots that will be awarded to any one contractor. For the avoidance of doubt a tenderer can tender for more than one Lot, but can only be appointed to deliver one Lot.
All tenderers meeting the minimum requirements will have their tender(s) evaluated by the Client.
Tenders for Lots 1 and 2 will be evaluated by a panel of representatives from a number of NICS departments and NI Water. Tenders for Lot 3 will be evaluated separately by a panel of representatives from PSNI and FSNI.
The Client will award Lots in the following order:
Lot 3, it being the highest value Lot, followed by
Lot 1, it being the next highest value Lot, and finally
Lot 2.
If the outcome of the evaluation is that the highest scoring tender in each Lot has been submitted by different Tenderers i.e. if 3 different Tenderers obtain the highest score for the three Lots, then those 3 Tenderers will each be awarded the Lot for which they submitted the highest scoring tender.
However, if this is not the outcome, the Client will determine the Lot allocation by applying the following process, as detailed below.
The Client will award Lot 3 to the highest scoring tender and that Tenderer will not be considered further for the Award of other Lots.
The Client will award Lot 1 to the highest scoring tender after the Tenderer awarded in Lot 3 has been removed (if applicable). The Tenderer awarded Lot 1 will not be considered further for the Award of other Lots.
The Client will award Lot 2 to the highest scoring tender after the Tenderers awarded in Lot 3 and Lot 1 have been removed (if applicable).
If, when awarding Lots as described above, there is a tie between tenders, i.e. identical overall scores, then the following process will be applied in the order set out below:
The Client will award a Lot to the tender with the highest Price score.
If there is a tie in the highest Price scores between tenders the Client will award the Lot to the tender with the highest score against the qualitative criteria in descending order of importance as follows:
I.AC1 Service Delivery to meet the Specification;
II.AC2 Implementation Plan;
III.AC3 Performance Monitoring.
The Client will apply this process for awarding Lots and Tenderers will not have discretion to indicate a preference for the award of a Lot. The Client reserves the right to award all or some of the Lots.
The successful contractor’s performance on the contract will be regularly monitored.
Contractors not delivering on contract requirements is a serious matter. It means the public purse is not getting what it is paying for. If a contractor fails to reach satisfactory levels of contract performance they will be given a specified time to improve. If, after the specified time, they still fail to reach satisfactory levels of contract performance, the matter will be escalated to senior management in Centre
Procurement Directorate Supplies and Services Division for further action. If this occurs and their performance still does not improve to satisfactory levels within the specified period, it may be regarded as an act of grave professional misconduct and they may be issued with a Certificate of Unsatisfactory Performance and the contract may be terminated. The issue of a Certificate of Unsatisfactory Performance will result in the contractor being excluded from all procurement competitions being undertaken by Centres of Procurement Expertise on behalf of bodies covered by the Northern Ireland Procurement Policy for a period of twelve months from the date of issue of the certificate.
