VI.3)Additional information

This is a Voluntary advertisement as the services to which the procurement relates fall within Part B of Schedule 3 to the Public Contracts Regulations 2006 (as amended) (the Regulations) and Annex IIB to Council Directive 2004/18/EC. As such, all stages of the tender process will not be subject to the requirements of the Regulations except those applicable to Part B services. Although the Authority intends that the tender process will follow a procedure similar to the open procedure in certain respects, for the avoidance of doubt the Authority is not running the process as though the open procedure applies, and so reserves the right to depart from that procedure at any point.
Our intention is to create a multi-supplier framework agreement for the specialist supplier support and training services required to support two Sharing In Growth programmes which are supported by the Regional Growth Fund . The framework agreement will not guarantee the supplier any subsequent orders, but will enable the Authority to use the approved supplier without the need for further competition. Each organization (Sharing and Growth UK Ltd and The University of Sheffield) will place separate call-off orders for their own requirements. They will each have their own ordering and invoicing systems and their own contract managers which will act as a single point of contact for each organization. In addition, where Beneficiaries have been approved by UoS, they will be able to place call-off orders directly (funded by the RGF). Bidders are referred to schedule 1 which sets out particular conditions on ordering, invoicing and payment for each organization.
This is a Part B Service and the service required is Education. CPV codes used in this notice relation to Engineering Services are only being used to ensure that all possible suppliers are notified.
