Main site or place of performance:

The Contract with Wakefield Council will be undertaken within the district of Wakefield. This may be different for other public sector origination that may chose to call off from this framework.

II.2.4)Description of the procurement:

The framework agreement

In addition, the Contracting Authority is keen to make the benefits of the Services delivered under the Contract available to publicly funded schools and other neighbouring public bodies. The Contracting Authority is also therefore seeking to procure a separate framework agreement (‘the Framework Agreement’) for the Services and services substantially similar to the Services.

The Contracting Authority will be acting as a central purchasing body through which the following contracting authorities and organisations in the Yorkshire and Humber Region may choose, but shall not be obliged, to procure the Services using the Framework Agreement:

(1) the other local authorities and publicly funded bodies that are identified in Annex A of this contract notice (‘the Participating Bodies’); and

(2) all publicly funded schools (including academies incorporated pursuant to the Academies Act 2010) and other educational establishments (including further education and adult education providers) within the geographical areas of the Contracting Authority and the Participating Bodies;

(3) police authorities, fire authorities, fire and rescue authorities, coastguard emergency services; NHS bodies, ambulance services, registered charities and registered social landlords within the geographical areas of the Contracting Authority and the Participating Bodies;

(4) any association of or formed by the Contracting Authority and/or one or more of the aforementioned contracting authorities and any corporation established, or a group of individuals, or group of individuals appointed to act together, for the specific purpose of meeting the needs in general interest, not having an industrial or commercial character, and financed wholly or mainly by the Contracting Authority and/or one or more of the aforementioned contract authorities or more than half of the board of directors or members of which, or, in the case of a group of individuals, are appointed by the Contracting Authority and/or one or more of the aforementioned contracting authorities.

Accordingly it is the intention that all these contracting authorities and organisations should be able to rely on this procurement to purchase such services without the need for any further procurement process. Also, for the avoidance of doubt, whereas the Contracting Authority currently provides some of the Services (OH advisor service) to local schools as part of its own arrangements, it is intended that this will in future be carried via the Framework Agreement,.

Full details of the exact services constituting the Services will appear in the tender documentation, as will

details of the mechanisms to be used by the Participating Bodies and other organisations to place orders for the Services (‘call-off contracts’) under the Framework Agreement.

The duration of an individual call-off contract under the Framework Agreement will not necessarily be limited to four years but will be governed by the precise subject matter of the call-off contract concerned. The form of the call-off contract will be agreed during the current procurement process and set out in the final Framework Agreement, subject to the right to make specific amendments in respect of an individual call-off.

No guarantee or warranty is given as to the nature or volume, if any, of the Services or the number of call-offs, if any, under the Framework Agreement.

It should also be noted that in addition to any change in the structure or identity of the Contracting Authority and/ or the Participating Bodies and/or contract authorities in the event of re-structuring within local government or other contracting authorities, this procurement and/or the Contract and any Framework Agreement awarded will pass to successor authorities to the Contracting Authority and the Participating Authorities and the contracting authorities as relevant and appropriate.

Contract commencement is anticipated around 1.5.2017.
