Hydraulic equipment. The Authority has a potential requirement for the supply of Bench Top Hydraulic Pressure Calibration Systems comprising Pressure Calibrator and Pressure Media Separator. The hydraulic calibrator must have a minimum working pressure of 0 to 700 bar g, be capable of calibrating pressure gauges, transducers and transmitters and of testing pressure switches. The calibrator must also be capable of pressurising large gauges.
The requirement will comprise the issue of an ITT to those selected to tender, to assess offered products against a Cardinal Points Specification (CPS), with proposed articles meeting the CPS then being subjected to trials. Products offered will also be assessed on the basis of affordability to the Authority based on its estimated requirement.
The Authority may wish to conduct a pre-qualification exercise to assist in the down selection of prospective tenderers. Only those companies who can demonstrate a sufficient level of competence, experience and resources against the Authority’s pre-qualification criteria will be invited to tender. It should be noted that the AWARD software package may be used as part of the pre-qualification/tender assessment process.
QA Standards or equivalent: The Contractor shall hold and maintain a certification to BS EN ISO 9001:2000/2008, issued by an accredited certification body.
Companies wishing to express an interest in this requirement should in the first instance submit an expression of interest, together with a copy of their ISO certificate including scope, to the named point of contact. Expressions of interest should not exceed 3 x A4 Size Pages.
Please note that late expressions will not be considered, nor will expressions where no ISO Certificate with appropriate scope is provided.
The announcement of a possible future requirement is not to be construed as confirmation that a tender/contract will subsequently be issued. The issue of a possible future requirement, or the issue of an Invitation to Tender, is not to be construed as a commitment by the Authority to place an order as a result of the tendering stage or at a later stage. Any expenditure, work or effort prior to any contract award is accordingly a matter solely for the commercial judgement of the potential supplier.
