II.2.4)Description of the procurement:

Appleton Academy, located in Wyke, just south of Bradford was opened in November 2012 after an extensive design and build phase, which led to the creation of a new 22 000 000 GBP building to replace 2 predecessor schools.

It is expected that the contract will continue to run on a profit return with no subsidy — there is no subsidy associated with the contract.

The School are Not solely looking for the successful tenderer to provide inward capital investment, but are looking for fresh and rejuvenated marketing of catering facilities, which could require investment if suggested, thus improving on the current provision and ensuring that the amount of time spent queuing by pupils is reduced across all break periods.

The quality of food provision will be critical and indeed your organisation must be flexible enough to source bakery, meat, fruit and vegetables and dairy products through local suppliers based no more than 30 miles from the School. It is expected that menus will feature and utilise products in season when available.

Customer engagement will be fundamental to the continuous improvement in the service provision and within your tender response your methodology to this will need to be detailed along with examples of where this has been undertaken within similar contracts recently.

The successful contractor should have similar operations within the local area thus ensuring that the Operational Management Team responsible for the contract is available for regular unplanned visits and support for the contract, and that coverage for any planned or unplanned leave from within the establishment staffing structure can be easily provided.
