Enquiries are sought from suitably qualified and experienced contractors in respect of a framework arrangement for security guard services at Shropshire Council sites. The contract will be fixed price for a period of 4 years commencing on 1.4.2013.
The contract will consist of a single contractor to undertake mobile and static guarding, opening/closing properties along with a key holding service as required at Shropshire Council premises and those of external clients.

The majority of the service will be keyholding for both intruder alarms and fire alarms at Shropshire Council properties throughout the whole geographic area of Shropshire. Individual premise managers determine whether the keyholding service is required at their site. Keyholding contracts will be between the security guarding company and individual Shropshire Council properties. The security guarding company is responsible for the setting up, the management and associated works as and when requested by the individual properties. Each keyholding contract shall be up to a maximum of two years and renewable thereafter.

When the present keyholding contracts expire, the new contractor may be invited to continue the keyholding service at the properties concerned.
The requirement of both mobile, static guarding and opening/closing will be intermittent and only when required. The contracts for this work shall be between the security guarding company and individual Shropshire Council properties and only be for the period required by the premise manager.
