II.1.5)Short description of the contract or purchase(s)

Waste and rubbish containers and bins. Polythene waste and refuse sacks and bags. WRAP acting as a Central Purchasing Body, is inviting Tenders in response to this Framework Agreement for Refuse and Recycling Containers. In March 2011, Welsh Government issued its Collections Blueprint which sets out the recommended service profile for Welsh local authorities to collect waste from households. The Blueprint details the systems recommended to achieve the highest rate of quality recycling, significant cost savings and improved sustainable development outcomes. In order to support the Blueprint, WRAP will act as the Central Purchasing Body would like to establish a Framework Agreement for Welsh local authorities to procure the Refuse and Recycling Containers that complement the Blueprint. This will provide Welsh local authorities with the tools they need to follow the Collection Blueprint and provide them with a quick route to market. Framework Call-off Contracts may be awarded in 2 ways; either via a further competition a ‘mini-tender’ between the Framework Suppliers, or by direct award. WRAP anticipates and encourages that local authorities use the direct award procedure for their smaller ‘top-up’ orders but recommends that Customers should conduct a mini-tender for their larger ‘roll-out’ orders. Suppliers will be able to opt to bid for a mini-tendered Call-off Contract or to enter into a Call-off Contract if offered one through the direct award route, but will not be obliged to do so. Customers ordering direct award call-offs under the Framework Agreement without re-opening competition shall: identify and seek to award the relevant Call-off contract to the Most Economically Advantageous Tenderer who has been accepted onto the Framework Agreement and applicable lot. WRAP is acting as a Central Purchasing Body. WRAP is inviting Tenders in response to the recently advertised Framework Agreement for Supply of Refuse and Recycling Containers. The Framework has been advertised in such a way that it will be available to all Welsh authorities to use. The Framework Agreement will have a duration of four years from its Commencement Date. The Framework will be divided into 5 Lots. The approach being taken will result in a minimum of three and a maximum of 5 successful bidders being appointed per lot as Framework Suppliers. LOT 1 Wheeled bins,LOT 2 Recycling boxes, LOT 3 Mobile stackable recycling containers, LOT 4 Kerbside recycling bags LOT 5 Food waste containers.
