II.1.3)Type of contract


II.1.4)Short description:

ICCS (Islington and Camden Cemetery Services) have been providing these products for a number of years over several areas within Islington and St Pancras Cemeteries. We are looking to extend our current provision to new areas within the main site as well as increasing on the existing areas. The Council seeks to establish a multi-supplier framework agreement.

The Council seeks applications from companies that can provide, install and maintain bespoke vaults and mausolea which are suitable for their purpose and fit in with the general ethos of Islington and St Pancras Cemetery, which holds a wide range of memorial styles from 1854 to date. Successful tenderers will have to take into account the problems of ground excavation and reinstatement around these schemes without interfering with the operation of the cemetery or of funerals in the area. The vaults and mausolea need to be LACO 1977 or equivalent compliant with suitable finishes to provide adequate weather and erosion proofing.

II.2.4)Description of the procurement:

Procedure for awarding each call-off

The Council does not guarantee that it will award any work under the framework agreement and neither can the council make a contractor accept work offered.

Direct Awards

Direct awards will be issued to contractors based on prices submitted in their tendered submission. The Council reserves the right to either issue a direct award or initiate a mini-competition for contracts with a value below 200 000 GBP.

Mini Competition

For all call-offs with a value of 200 000 GBP and above, the Council will commit to undertake a mini-competition. Mini-competitions will use the same award criteria that were used to establish the framework. The quality score given for the ‘Method Statements’ when the framework was established will be used to give the total quality score. The current pricing provided via the mini-competition will be scored to give a total price score. The call-off contract will then be awarded to the contractor who achieves the highest combined score.
