This is a notice for social and specific services in accordance with Directive 2014/24/EU Article 74. The type of social and specific services (as broadly categorised in Schedule 3 of the Public Contracts Regulations 2015) are: primarily ‘hotel and restaurant services’; with some event services which fall into the category of ‘administrative social, educational, healthcare and cultural services’.
The Metropolitan Police Service (MPS), founded by Sir Robert Peel in 1829, is famed around the world and has a unique place in the history of policing. Today, accountable to The Mayor’s Office for Policing and Crime (MOPAC). For the purposes of this Contract Notice the term ‘Authority’ shall refer to the MPS and/or MOPAC as the context requires. The Authority is responsible for policing an area of 620 square miles with a daily population of over 12 m. The Authority, in common with the majority of other public sector organisations is facing significant cost/budget challenges over the next few years. In order to meet this challenge the Authority is radically changing to improve the delivery of high quality policing services in a more effective and cost efficient way as it aspires to be the best police service in the world. The Authority, however, needs to eliminate duplication and work as one organisation to achieve the outcomes. The changes mean a fundamental re-think about the way the Authority delivers its services to become a modern and responsive organisation that puts the public at the heart of what it does. The outcome of the changes will ensure neighbourhood policing is the foundation of what the Authority does overlaid with a flexible and dynamic pan London response, investigative and specialist policing. This contract notice is to notify the market that the Authority will be commencing a tender process for Catering Services. The contract shall include without limitation, the following areas of service provision: 1. Staff Restaurants — this is the provision of a food service to both police officers and police staff on Authority premises. Any adaptations/alterations to furniture, fixtures or fittings to staff restaurants and associated facilities that the successful deems necessary will be carried out by the successful bidder and will have to be agreed with the Authority prior to modification or change. Any modifications to structure or building fabric will be undertaken by the Authority if approved. The type of service varies across the Authority Estate depending on number of officers/staff based at particular locations. This is a service that staff/officers pay for at point of sale. It is an aspiration of the Authority under this procurement for the successful bidder to deliver the Staff Restaurant service on a nil- subsidy basis. 2. Operational Feeding — This is the provision of food and drinks to police officers involved in Public order events and incidents both planned and unplanned.
