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:
Range: between 2 000 000 and 3 000 000 GBP
No business whatsoever is guaranteed under any resulting framework agreement or contract indeed there is no guarantee that any framework agreement or contract will be put in place in relation to this notice. No compensation etc will be paid if a tender or resulting framework agreement is withdrawn for any reason. Bidders should take part in this process only on the basis that they fully understand and accept this position. Estimated value is based on historical data from the current operating model, which indicates disposal at cost between GBP 2M and GBP 3M and gross revenue generated from sale and recycling at between GBP 150K and GBP 200K over the 4 year period. However, it is anticipated that a greater proportion of the Residual Assets could be sold or recycled and therefore, with an appropriate marketing strategy, more revenue could be generated than the current model suggests.
