II.1.5)Short description of the contract or purchase(s)

Lift installation work. Lift-maintenance services. The Wheatley Housing Group Limited proposes to enter into a long term partnering contract through which it aims to replace an initial fifty passenger lifts (the core programme) and up to another fifty lifts (the growth programme) if funding becomes available. Also, as part of an overall programme of activities to improve the lives of customers the contract will include, for example, changing the lift door/architraves etc to previously refurbished lifts.
Central to our requirements is a firm view that the future long term maintenance of our lifts relies on the installation of new lifts which use non-proprietary components designed for and proven in the social housing environment, the availability of non-proprietary diagnostic equipment and tools for maintenance, single point responsibility for design and installation of the lifts, and adoption of each new lift installation by our lift maintenance contractor only after a period of proven reliability.
Through this Contract Award Procedure we intend to procure a new lift replacement contract which recognises this view and establishes a flexible approach to the design/supply/install/maintain cycle; allows us to engage with specialists at each stage under the umbrella of a partnering style contract involving significant supply chain partners of the lift installer, and provides an opportunity for any cost and/or logistics advantages that emerge from the new arrangements to be made available to our lift maintenance contractor.
The proposed contract will take the form of a partnering style arrangement involving the Wheatley Housing Group Limited and the successful applicant as the principal contracting parties, together with the successful applicant’s main supply chain provider and our lift maintenance contractor as partners in the arrangement.
The contract will be based on the ACA TPC2005 measured term contract which will provide us with the flexibility to deliver the programmes to best suit our customers and will establish the nature of the multi-party contractual relationships.
Supplementary information about the contract and its main provisions are as set out in the contracting authority’s pre-qualification questionnaire which will be provided to applicants who submit a request to participate.
More detailed information will be presented in the tender documentation/ descriptive documents which will be issued to those organisations that are selected to be invited to tender.
