Section II: Object of the contract
Main site or location of works, place of delivery or of performance: wales.
NUTS code UKL
Duration of the framework agreement
Duration in years: 4
Estimated total value of purchases for the entire duration of the framework agreement
Estimated value excluding VAT: 2 000 000 GBP
Spend during the last year was approximately £500,000 for these products. However, it should be noted that this amount is representative of just 17 of the 22 member colleges comprising the WFEPC, all of whom have the ability to participate in the future contract. From this, there is a clear indication of potential growth in the contract, provided that a pro-active approach to building the business is adopted by the supplier.
We envisage that the contract will be split into 3 lots as detailed in the core list and, therefore, it is anticipated that more than one supplier may be awarded the business.
Within the WFEPC Strategic Plan, the use of E -Procurement has been identified as an area for further development. Therefore the consortium is actively seeking suppliers who either have this capability or are willing to work with the WFEPC in developing further.
Next day delivery, minimum requirement 48 hrs Pass/Fail
Online ordering & Payment by Purchasing Card Pass/Fail
Removal of waste toners free of charge by yourself or third party Weighted 20%
The above are the requirements which are requested by the majority of WFEPC users, if you are unable at present or by the time of the contract award, deliver the minimum requested you will not be permitted to tender.
Community Benefits do not apply to this contract
Tenders may be submitted for one or more lots
