The Environment Agency has a requirement for 4 wheel drive tractors of a variety of sizes and associated equipment to enable it to carry out its statutory and voluntary undertakings in relation to the maintenance and operation of flood defences and river channels. It also has a requirement for a variety of wood chippers for the same purpose. We wish to establish a sole source National Framework for the supply of tractors and associated equipment.
The primary requirement is the supply of tractors and associated equipment in conformity with the specification provided in section 2 of the tender document. Although the majority of our requirements will be as specified in section 2, it is likely that we will sometimes have bespoke requirements for similar but as yet unknown and unspecified equipment. This equipment is likely to consist of tractors below, above and between the horsepower categories stated and a wide variety of other attachments. These may include linkage mounted attachments (i.e. post drivers; snow ploughs; PTO driven concrete mixers; power harrows; spreaders, etc.), alternative types of agricultural trailer (i.e. tipper trailers; flat bed trailers; curtain-side trailers, etc.), alternative fore-loader attachments (i.e. snow ploughs; general purpose buckets; bag lifters; carriage mounted hooks; shear grabs; log grabs; etc.).
