The buyer is using PCS-Tender to conduct this ITT exercise. The project code is 10263. For more information see: http://www.publiccontractsscotland.gov.uk/info/InfoCentre.aspx?ID=2343

The Contracting Authority does not intend to include a sub-contract clause as part of community benefits [as per Section 25 of the Procurement Reform (SCOTLAND) Act 2014] in this contract for the following reason:

As per the community benefits rationale.

The nature and lotting structure of the framework means that we cannot guarantee the volumes of work to any single supplier that would be required to justify a sub-contract clause.

The contracting authority does not intend to include any community benefit requirements in this contract for the following reason:

The opportunity is for a multi-supplier framework. Further to this, the overall value, although in total over 4 000 000 GBP, is divided between 14 lots. Therefore, we are unable to guarantee a particular volume of work to any one supplier. On this basis, we feel it is inappropriate to expect contractors to commit to delivering community benefits.
