The tender will be run via the Restricted procedure in accordance with the Public Contract Regulations 2015. Bidders will be able to submit a Selection Questionnaire (SQ), following the assessment of which, bidders will be short listed and progressed to the Invitation to Tender stage (ITT). The contract will be awarded on a fixed price basis; bidders will be scored solely on their quality response at tender stage. The rationale behind a fixed price tender is to focus the tenderer purely on the quality of service provision. The budget for the contract commencement will be approximately 1 175 000 GBP per annum with CPI inflation to be applied on an annual basis. Bids priced in excess of the stated budget will be rejected. There is 50 000 GBP available in addition to the annual budget, as a reward for achieving the performance targets agreed at the beginning of the Contract and each year thereafter. We wish to ensure there is a constant focus on delivering quality and to incentivise the appointed contractor to continually seek improvements and efficiency gains in their delivery. We hope this will provide the opportunity to promote and develop a creative and innovative thinking approach from a contractor, with our residents and tenants at the heart of this.
