The Authority has 27 sites spread across the county of Nottinghamshire and within Nottingham City itself (the site addresses are available upon request from Faithful+Gould via the in-tend tendering portal).

This Multi Activity Contract will be for an initial 3 year period with an option for the Authority to extend for up to a further 2 years. The authority has a current Mulit Activity Contract which is due to expire in 2016. The authorities aim is to replace this with a new Mulit Activity Contract for the following reasons: To ensure the Authoritys Estate is well maintained and is compliant with all relevant statutory requirements. To ensure the Authoritys Estate allows the Authority to maintain its operational capability as a fire service at all times. To provide the Authority with a 24/7 reactive call out repair service. To provide best value through the application of economies of scale in larger contracts. To provide a common standard in the way that the Authority expects its contractors to manage equality and diversity and in harmony with its own. To provide a common standard for our requirements in the way that the Authority expects its contractors to manage environmental issues in line with its own. To provide a single point of responsibility for the Authority for the management of our pre-planned and reactive maintenance. To provide a standard level of service for contract services across the Authoritys estate. The estimated value is — planned maintenance between 300 000-450 000 GBP per year and reactive maintenance 100 000-250 000 GBP per year.
It is worthwhile to note at this point that the authority recognises that the Transfer Undertakings (Protection of Employment) Regulations 2006 (TUPE) may apply in respect of this contract, and should they so apply that for the purposes of those regulations, the undertaking concerned (or any relevant part of the undertaking) shall transfer to the preferred provider on the commencement of full operations.
