Leicester City Council (“the Council”) is responsible for Property Services to approximately 800 buildings, including schools, community homes, libraries and museums etc. The Services are to be undertaken to primarily Leicester City Council’s non domestic buildings but the framework will be open and made available to domestic buildings and other contracting authorities within the County of Leicestershire, including Universities, the NHS, and Police. Accordingly where a range of value has been quoted (see lots) the lower range value applies to the estimated Leicester City Council total value and the upper range value relates to the total estimated maximum value for all contracting authorities.
The Council invites applications from suitably experienced and qualified Specialist Contractor(s) for the following Categories of Works and Services:
1. Emergency call out service;
a. Normal working hours
b. Out of Hours
2. Responsive repair;
3. Routine repair;
4. Small Works;
5. Minor improvements and alterations;

The Contract is intended for works and services not exceeding £10,000 per individual order value.

The above categories of works will be tendered in 7 separate lots.

The award of the Contract will be limited to one Contractor per each Lot except LOT 1 – General Building where two Contractors will be selected. Under each Category applied for the service is required to mainly be resourced by direct labour, with limited sub-contracted work in specialist areas only.

Contractors expressing an interest in tendering for the Service Category applied for must be able to provide under the following Lots:

Lot 1. General Building including basic electrical and mechanical building services
Lot 2. Drainage.
Lot 3. Roofing.
Lot 4. Finishes.
Lot 5. Glazing and window replacement.
Lot 6. Electrical services.
Lot 7. Mechanical and plumbing services.

Historically the contract has been based on the National Schedule of Rates (NSR) and a Joint Contracts Tribunal (JCT) Standard Form of Measured Term Contract. The Council is considering the use of both target costing, schedules of rates, and industry standard contracts (including the New Engineering Contract (NEC) and JCT contracts) as part of a consultation exercise being undertaken, the outcome of which will feed into and determine the final decision. You should be fully conversant with the use of the NSR for measuring items of work ordered.

The length of the arrangement will be for a period of 3 years with a 12 month optional contract extensions at the end of year 3 which is at the sole discretion of the Council.
