Additional Information

(WA Ref:92667)

Under the terms of this contract the successful supplier(s) will be required to deliver Community Benefits in support of the authority’s economic and social objectives. Accordingly, contract performance conditions may relate in particular to social and environmental considerations. The Community Benefits included in this contract are:

CCHA is committed to contributing to the social, economic and environmental well-being of the wider community. Consequently Community Benefits clauses will be a mandatory contract clause. Therefore, as a minimum requirement, Tenderers will have to agree that community benefits will become part of the contract, if a Tenderer does not agree to this, then the Tenderer will be rejected.

This means, as part of their tender response, Tenderers are asked to set out how they will deliver community benefits through the contract by completing Section 1B.

CCHA will be adopting the ‘non-core approach’ as part of this procurement process. This means the Community Benefits Plan will NOT be evaluated and scored as part of the tender process. However, contractual clauses will set out the specific targets for delivery, to be agreed within 60 days of commencement of the contract.
