Lancaster University is seeking to establish a multi-lot framework agreement with a number of suppliers for the service for removals, relocations and associated services at Lancaster University.
Lancaster University is set in 360 acres of parkland and grounds amenity space; this includes pedestrian paths and roads. It has nearly 160 000 m2 of non residential space and 152 000 m2 of residential space.This document has been prepared to set-out the University’s requirements and enable potential Suppliers to submit accurate proposals.
We anticipate that the successful suppliers will undertake the majority of the requirements covered within the scope of this framework agreement; however we reserve the right to seek alternative service providers in the event that appointed suppliers cannot meet the level of quality or the timing required or the type of specialist service.
The successful bidders will be ranked in result order from the tender for each of the 4 lots (we envisage there will be 3 organisations awarded to each lot), for each work package the University will approach the number one ranked supplier, if they are unable to perform the work then the second will be approached and so on.
