The Authority has considered (pursuant to the Public Services (Social Value) Act 2012) whether to explicitly seek social value through this procurement, but has decided that it is not appropriate on this occasion as social value is embedded in the service specification. The Authority has also concluded that it is not necessary to consult about social value in this instance.

The framework is multi-lotted and is open to multiple suppliers under each lot and is being let under the light touch regime. The Framework Agreement differs from those let under the non-light touch regime in that the Council, exercising its flexibility, will keep the framework open for new applicants throughout its term and reserves the right to extend the framework from its 48 month initial term for an additional 48 months, in 2 period of 24 months.

Contracts awarded under the framework may have a maximum total duration of 10 years. No contract awarded from the framework will be permitted to extend beyond 1.3.2037.
