Economic operators should register and/or log into the TfL eTendering system www.tfl.gov.uk/eprocurement to respond to this notice.
Transport for London (TfL) is a complex organisation operating both as a functional body of the Greater London Authority (GLA) under the direction of the Mayor of London and as a provider of transport services, including providing services for Surface Transport.
The Contracting Authority is acting as a central purchasing body on behalf of itself (all members of the TfL group of companies) and the Greater London Authority and its other functional bodies (currently, London Development Agency, the Metropolitan Police, the London Fire and Emergency Planning Authority) and London Boroughs.
Any of these bodies may award a contract to the successful bidder substantially on the terms of the contract awarded by the Contracting Authority (if any).
Further details will be given in the invitation documents.
Further information on TfL may be found at www.tfl.gov.uk.
If and when this requirement is offered to tender, this will be, at the awarding authority’s discretion, by electronic e-tendering or e-auction or e-award system.
The Contracting Authority reserves the right to award the contract in whole or in part or not at all as a result of this call for competition. The Contracting Authority shall not be liable for any costs or expenses incurred by any bidders in responding to this notice or in tendering for the proposed contract(s). The Contracting Authority may interview any or call or all companies who express an interest in tendering for this work.
Applicants should note that notwithstanding previous registration on TfL’s list of vendors they must re-apply if they wish to be considered for the scheme (services/supply/works) advertised.
TfL embraces diversity and welcomes applications from all suitably skilled suppliers of all sizes who can meet the requirements, regardless of gender, ethnicity, sexual orientation, faith, disability or age of supplier workforce and/or ownership.
TfL strongly supports and implements the Greater London Authority Group Responsible Procurement Policy. Details about the policy can be found on the publications page of the Transport for London website www.tfl.gov.uk/businessandpartners/sellingtotfl/1337.aspx GLA Responsible Procurement Policy (pdf). Further details as to the application of the Greater London Authority Group Responsible Procurement Policy to this procurement will be set out in the tender documents.
The UK government has announced its commitment to greater data transparency. Accordingly TfL reserves the right to publishing its tender documents, contracts and data from invoices received. In so doing TfL may at its absolute discretion take account of the exemptions that would be available under the Freedom of Information Act 2000 and Environmental Information Regulations 2004.
TfL may at its absolute discretion consult with the service provider regarding any such redactions. However TfL will make the final decision regarding publication and/or redaction.
If an appeal regarding the award of a contract has not been successfully resolved the (for Public Sector) Public Contracts Regulations 2006 (SI 2006 No 5) provide for aggrieved parties who have been harmed or are at risk of harm by a breach of the rules to take action in the High Court (England, Wales and Northern Ireland).
Any such action must be brought promptly (generally within 3 months).
Where a contract has not been entered into the court may order the settling aside of the award decision or order the authority to amend any document and may award damages. If the contract has been entered into the court may only award damages.
