II.2.4)Description of the procurement:

BU has identified a programme of works for the roll out of Windows-compatible IT equipment (and some associated peripherals) to staff and students across its entire estate (both Lansdowne and Talbot campus). It is expected that the roll-out will take up to 5 years to complete. Accordingly, BU is seeking to establish the Framework from which to procure the Computers, the IT Equipment and the Associated Services, in order to facilitate this roll-out. As provided for by the Regulations, it is anticipated that the Framework will run for 4 years. Procurement Methodology: The intention is to appoint one OEM, together with no fewer than 2 but no more than three Resellers, to the Framework. Thereafter, the Computers, IT Equipment and Associated Services required for the roll-out programme will be procured by way of either direct award to the top ranked Provider or mini-competition between all Providers. It should be noted that an OEM may offer the provision of selling of its own Computers and IT Equipment directly; however, this does not preclude the OEM from still having to nominate sufficient Resellers to enable a minimum of 2 and a maximum of three Resellers to be appointed to the Framework. It should be noted that OEMs will be expected to provide (and therefore tender against) all Computers and IT Equipment identified in BU’s requirements. Furthermore, all Computers to be provided under the Framework must be of the OEM’s own brand (although IT Equipment does not have to be the OEM’s own brand). Likewise, Resellers must only provide the branded Computers proposed by the OEM by whom the Reseller has been nominated. In respect of IT Equipment, Resellers must only provide the equipment (whether OEM branded or otherwise) proposed by the OEM.
