Duration of the framework agreement
Duration in months: 24

All agreements resulting from this tender should be made available to and apply to all current and future members of SUPC, London Universities Purchasing Consortium (LUPC), and the Higher Education Purchasing Consortium, Wales (HEPCW). It should also apply, with the express written permission of SUPC, to any member of any other Higher or Further Education regional purchasing consortium or any other Higher Education institution in the United Kingdom as well as the Research Councils, providing that they formally commit to participate in and support this Framework. SUPC will only grant permission at the request of the consortium, or an institution if it is not a member of a Consortium. This is on the understanding that not all Suppliers may be able to provide to all these institutions, and that the Framework is not intended to replace any current agreements that either participating or non-participating consortia may have.
39800000, 39525800, 39224300, 39830000, 33772000, 24000000, 33711900, 39831700, 39514400, 42122230, 39291000
The current SUPC Janitorial Products and Cleaning Chemicals Framework, awarded in 2009, led to growth of Framework spend from GBP 3 million (academic year 2009/2010) per annum to GBP 3.5 million (academic year 2011/2012). From that period, data from incumbent framework suppliers shows there were thirty eight (38) Full and Associate SUPC members (and several FE Affiliate members) using the Framework (2011/2012), using multiple framework suppliers or sole supply. There is a small level of additional relevant spend under a range of other existing framework agreements for PPE and kitchen chemicals.
The above figures do not include spend for HEPCW or LUPC members, and whilst those consortia have asked that their members be able to access the Framework, likely spend under the Framework from their institutions is unknown.
The number of suppliers contracted will be decided following the evaluation of bids received.
Mandatory requirements apply and are detailed in the pre-tender documentation. Bidders should read this documentation carefully before requesting and completing the Tender documentation. Failure to comply with requirements for completion and submission of the Tender Response may result in the rejection of the Tender. Bidders are advised therefore to acquaint themselves fully with the extent and nature of the Tender scope.
Estimated value excluding VAT:
Range: between 5 000 000 and 15 000 000 GBP
