In addition to the provision of a direct repair/replacement service, the Authority may wish to include the ability to conduct formal Planned Contract Repair of the same assemblies.
Repairs/service exchanges must be executed in accordance with original equipment manufacturers specifications. The Service Provider(s) must be able to supply all necessary parts and material to complete the repair/replacement within short turn round times and to the detailed (OEM) quality standards.
The Service Provider(s) must be able to provide a service on a nationwide basis in Great Britain, Northern Ireland and Germany and as required to Training Areas in Poland and the Czech Republic.
It is the intention of the Authority to move away from the traditional paper-based ordering procedure, taking into consideration a possible P2P Catalogue Approach for processing orders.
Service Provider(s) will be expected to collate repair/usage data over the duration of the Contract, and to work with the Authority to seek continuous improvement to the reliability and maintainability of Assemblies under the scope of requirement.
Full specifications detailing the exact scope of the direct repair/replacement Service will be made available to those Contractors successful in being selected to receive an Invitation to tender. Dependant on the number of Expressions of Interest received a pre-qualification questionnaire may be issued to reduce the number of tenderers to a manageable number. It should be noted that the AWARD software will be used as part of the PQQ/tender evaluation process.
Any resultant tender that may be issued will be issued on the basis of individual lots as detailed above. Interested parties should in the first instance, submit an expression of interest, outlining which Category or Categories they are interested in supporting, together with their ISO accreditation certificate including scope, to the Authority’s nominated representative and detailing their previous experience in the Categories they are expressing an interest against. Any supporting promotional material must not exceed 3 x A4 pages. Please note that late expressions will not be considered, nor will expressions where no ISO Certificate with appropriate scope is provided.
Any expenditure, work or effort undertaken prior to any contract award is accordingly a matter solely for the commercial judgement of the potential supplier.
Companies wishing to express an interest should be aware that there is a possibility in the future that this requirement may be subsumed into a larger Authority Requirement for the provision of a Global Direct Repair Scheme. In the event of this happening, any contract(s) that may be placed as a consequence of this possible future purchase may be subject for consideration to novation/transfer to any future Global DRS Provider.
