VI.3)Additional information:

Justification for a framework agreement, the duration of which exceeds 4 years: Due to the nature of the work involved in the services specified, any call-off contracts under the framework would likely be of a substantial duration and would require substantial investment by the provider in order to deliver, with return on investment being beyond the contract duration. It is important that the Framework duration is proportionate to this investment effort, delivery time-scale and recognises the period of investment.

The Council recognises that the investment from the provider and time-scales will be substantial. This may translate into longer further competition processes as well as actual delivery time-scales. The Council wishes to offer a framework duration which addresses these factors and provide framework providers with sufficient time to undertake appropriate preparatory work prior to being awarded specific projects.

The nature of the work also requires the development of strategic partnerships with the providers on the Framework to ensure the delivery of suitable and sustainable solutions and services. The Council wishes to minimise disruption to people in receipt of care services as a result of opportunities delivered through the framework. To achieve this, the service requires a long lead in and appropriate consultation and planning undertaken with service users, families and the community as a whole.

Taking these factors into account, it is the Council’s view that overall active engagement with suitable providers and regular further competitions for individual contracts will enhance, as opposed to distort, competition.

On this basis, the Framework will have a duration of 7 years.

Range: between 0 and 850 000 000 GBP.

Frequency and value of the contracts to be awarded: The Council is unable to give any guarantee as to the number and value of developments to be delivered through the Framework. The Council anticipates that it will utilise the Framework to deliver a minimum of 9 and up to a maximum of 30 extra care schemes with an estimated value between 194 000 000 GBP and 647 000 000 GBP. The Council will also encourage and support bids to the Homes and Communities Agency for grant funding to support proposed developments and may consider applying for Homes and Communities Agency Grant funding to support developments in its own right.

An indicative procurement timetable is set out in the PQQ. ECC reserves the right to amend time-scales, and change the evaluation criteria if there are genuine omissions or mistakes. ECC also reserve the right to reduce the number of bidders selected to be invited to tender in the event that minimum standards and/or thresholds set out in the PQQ or Evaluation Methodology document are not met.

The figures stated are an estimate of the potential value of all contracts that may be entered in to by ECC and the other organisations named as able to contract with the successful bidder during the contract period.

ECC reserves the right to cancel the procurement exercise and/or not to award all or part of a contract. ECC will not be responsible for any costs incurred by potential suppliers (or any other person participating in the process) in relation to this procurement exercise including if the procurement exercise is cancelled. Suppliers are advised that ECC is subject to the Freedom of Information Act 2000 (FOIA) and the Environmental Information Regulations 2004 (EIR). If a supplier considers that any of the information supplied as part of this procurement exercise should not be disclosed because of its commercial sensitivity, confidentiality or otherwise, it must, when providing this information, clearly identify the specific information it does not wish to be disclosed and clearly specify the reasons for its sensitivity.
