Tenders for Area 1 will be evaluated in accordance with the evaluation criteria. The evaluation process for each item will result in Contractors being ranked on the framework for each item within the lot based on their tender score (which will be a combination of both price and quality).
Up to a maximum of 5 Contractors for each item within a specified lot will be listed on the framework to provide specified items, with the exception of Lots 18, 28, 30, 32, 33 and 34 where up to a maximum of 5 Contractors for each item within a lot will be listed on the framework to provide items without operator, and a maximum of 10 Contractors for each item within a lot will be listed on the framework to supply items with operator.
Once Contractors have been appointed onto the framework for a specified item in a lot and have entered into a Framework Agreement, the Council will as and when required Call Off the Framework Agreement by issuing an Order (with a unique reference number) to the highest scoring, and therefore highest ranked Contractor selected to carry out Services In accordance with the procedure set out in this specification.
Orders will be Called Off for each item as and when the item is required by going to the top ranked Contractor first. If the top ranked contractor is unable to meet any of the order requirements with regard to the type of item, the need by date/lead time, and with / or without operator, the next ranked Contractor will be contacted and the order placed with them. If the second ranked Contractor is unable to meet the order requirements the third ranked Contractor will be contacted and so on.
In the event that none of the Contractors on the Framework Agreement are able to meet the order requirements the Council reserves place the order within another Area of the Framework or indeed outside the Framework. The Council therefore offers no guarantee of exclusivity of all its hire arrangements will be put through this framework contract.
Please Note: tenderers are allowed to submit tenders for any item or items listed in each lot or lots being tendered for. Tenderers are not required to tender for every item within the lot or lots they are bidding for
Area 2 — Miscellaneous Catalogue Items
All tenderers are invited to provide the Council with a list of relevant catalogue vehicles, plant, tools and equipment with and without operator with prices that are available to hire outside the scope of the specified items listed in Area 1. The tenderers that are appointed to Lot 1 will also be appointed to Lot 2 with the catalogue items and rates that are submitted.
Tenderers will be ranked in Lot 2 based on their quality score alone. In order to access Lot 2 the Council will search the top ranked Contractors catalogue and if the required item is available in the catalogue and available to hire the Council will place an Order at the tendered price. If the top ranked contractor’s catalogue does not contain the required item then the second ranked contractor’s catalogue will be search and so on.
Tenderers should note that only items outside the scope of the specified items in Area 1 will be considered with Area 2.
Area 3 — Mini Competition
All tenderers appointed to the framework arrangement in Lot 1 will be automatically appointed to Lot 3 unless tenderers specifically request otherwise. Lot 3 will be used by the Council where it identifies a requirement that cannot be met by Lot 1 or Lot 2; this could be specialist equipment or equipment where the Council feels better value could achieved by re-opening competition. When re-opening competition in this area the Council will contact all Tenderers appointed to Lot 3 with a specification of the requirement. Tenderers will then be required to provide the Council with a price that complies with the requirement. The Council will award the Order to the cheapest compliant offer received.
