This requirement is not an opportunity to work directly with Network Rail in delivering digital advertising. This opportunity relates to the supply of the Digital Advertising Panels only and the technical back-up support and service levels required in maintaining these panels.
Network Rail wish to contract with a number of digital panel suppliers to maximise benefit (via reduced delivery timescales and overheads). To maximise these benefits, we wish to establish a framework of suppliers who can deliver the right quality of product at current market rates. We will then carry out a mini-competition to identify the supplier for a particular digital panel/unit on a site by site basis.
Each mini-competition under the framework will look to establish the price and availability for the specific panel(s) required at the point of purchase.
We wish to let a 4 year framework with multiple suppliers under which mini-competitions will be run to call off goods/services, where specific instructions will be given by Network Rail, to identify a supplier who will deliver on a fixed and firm price lump sum basis.
