Tameside Metropolitan Borough Council (“The Contracting Authority”), acting on behalf of the Participants, is leading on the procurement process to establish a Framework Agreement of up to 3 suppliers for the secure removal and ethical disposal of redundant ICT Equipment from various locations throughout the Participating Authorities. The Agreement will be split into three Lots as follows;

LOT 1 Re-marketing – ICT Equipment that has been identified as having a residual value from which the authority requires a % monetary return (the authority may decide to sell or donate these items to target groups e.g. staff, community groups or charities).

LOT 2 Re-deploy – ICT Equipment that can be fixed, refurbished and/or upgraded and re-deployed back into organisations for re-use.

LOT 3 Disposal – ICT Equipment that is unfit or not economically viable for resale or re-deployment, requiring removal and disposal only.

The Equipment will consist of a mixture of User and Data Centre Computing equipment (e.g. PC’s, Laptops and Tablets) Printers (and optionally printer consumables), Peripherals, Networking Equipment, Telephony and Data Storage Devices, and Overhead projectors. Optionally, mobile phones/smartphones and PDAs may be included.

In summary the key objectives of the exercise are as follows:

  • Implement a cost neutral and/or revenue generating solution (where achievable)
  • Ensure accurate asset tracking and management takes place
  • Guarantee secure destruction of data in line with participants needs/industry standards
  • Enable ICT equipment to be refurbished and redeployed
  • Make sure the removal and disposal of equipment is undertaken in a secure, ethical and environmental manner
  • Work towards zero percent landfill and recycling back in to raw materials wherever possible.
  • Enable “Social Value” benefits to be delivered for participating authorities including maximising employment opportunities, reducing worklessness (long term unemployment) and the wider regeneration of the communities that they serve.
  • Create high and effective levels of communication between all parties involved

The framework will be open to other public sector bodies within the North West of England including (but not exclusive to); Local Authorities, Educational Establishments; NHS and HSC Bodies, including Ambulance Services; Central Government Departments and their Agencies.

The following Greater Manchester Authorities (“The Participants”) intend to participate in the process; Blackburn with Darwen BC; Blackpool Council, Bolton Council; Bury Council; Greater Manchester Police Authority, Manchester CC; Oldham Council; Rochdale MBC; Salford CC; Stockport MBC; Tameside MBC; Transport for Greater Manchester, Trafford Council; Warrington BC and Wigan Council.

Note: This will NOT be a sole supplier agreement. Other public sector organisations within the North West may choose to make alternative procurement arrangements.
