Local Government Reorganisation (LGR):

Tenderers are asked to note the following in relation to this Procurement:

In February 2017, to best protect public services and represent the whole of Dorset as the government continues to reduce the funding it gives to local councils, 6 Dorset councils — including Dorset County Council — submitted a proposal to replace the nine authorities with 2 unitary for all Dorset. This proposal is known as “Future Dorset”.

In February 2018, the Secretary of State agreed that the current nine councils across Dorset will be dissolved at the end of March 2019 and 2 new organisations, known as “Dorset Council” and “Bournemouth, Christchurch and Poole Council” will come into effect from 1.4.2019.

On 23.5.2018, the Parliamentary process to create 2 new councils in Dorset concluded, with the legislation being passed in both Houses of Parliament.

The 2 new councils for Dorset, one serving the Dorset Area (“Dorset Council”) and one serving the Bournemouth, Christchurch and Poole Area (“Bournemouth, Christchurch Poole Council”) will now start to be formed. The current nine councils will cease to exist on 31.3.2019, with the 2 new councils coming into effect on 1.4.2019.

The focus for Dorset County Council is to continue to deliver services between now and 31.3.2019, and to make plans for smooth continuity on Day 1 of the new Dorset Council.

All Dorset County Council contracts will transfer to the new authority, “Dorset Council”, as from 1.4.2019 as part of this statute structural change.

All documentation relating this process is hosted on the following procurement portal: https://www.supplyingthesouthwest.org.uk where you will be able to access Dorset County Council opportunities as well as those of other Contracting Bodies.

New users will be required to register onto the system in order to access this tender opportunity and documentation and to be able to submit a tender response. Clear instructions and a contact point is available within the portal to provide supplier help. As a result of the procurement process commenced by publication of this notice under no circumstances will the Contracting Body be liable for any costs incurred by the candidates. Any expenditure, work or effort undertaken prior to Framework Agreement admittance, is accordingly a matter solely for the commercial judgement of potential suppliers.

The Council reserves the right not to award a contract, to make whatever changes it sees fit to the timing of the procurement process or to cancel the process in its entirety at any stage and, where it considers it appropriate to do so, to award a contract for only 1 lot.
