As a first step and prior to awarding the contract, A Pre-Qualification Questionnaire (PQQ) has been produced to allow Queens Cross Housing Association to assess the ability of the Economic Operators who are seeking the appointment:
— the PQQ is marked out of 100 and the highest 5 companies will be invited to tender,
— economic Operators who have previously submitted a PQQ under notice ref 2011/S 123-204575 will have the option to confirm that they wish their previous PQQ submission to be considered. The score for the previous PQQ will be permitted to stand on the basis that the submission request is made via the Public Contracts Scotland electronic Post box before the deadline,

— Queens Cross Housing Association intends to enter into an appointment with two Economic Operators to carry out a fully comprehensive planned preventative maintenance and repair service including a breakdown call-out service operating 24 hours a day for the Association’s 44 lifts located in properties across Glasgow. The contract will be sub-divided into 2 lots with 24 lifts allocated to lot 1 (South) and 20 lifts allocated to lot 2 (North),
— the provision of Lift Maintenance and Repair Services is currently outsourced to a number of service providers. It is anticipated that the contract to be awarded may require the transfer of staff under the provisions of Transfer of Undertakings (Protection of Employment) Regulations 2006 (TUPE). The economic operator will need to liaise with the transferee to determine the measures the transferee may envisage taking with respect to the employees in order to carry out proper consultation. The transferee is required under TUPE to provide employee liability information in relation to any employees which are assigned to existing contracts,
— the initial contract period will be for 3 years and the contract may be extended for up to a further 24 months after the initial 3 year contract period. Any extension will be at the sole discretion of Queens Cross Housing Association,
— during the course of the contract the number of lifts may increase or reduce to reflect property acquisitions, disposals or other amendments which may include change of use. At present the Association has a number of lifts which are still being maintained under warranty, it is anticipated that these may be included as and when the warranty periods expire,
— the Economic Operator will be required to ensure compliance and assist Queens Cross Housing Association in ensuring compliance with all statutory legislation specifically:
— the Management of Health and Safety Regulations 1999 (MHSW),
— the Lifting Operations and Lifting Equipment Regulations 1998 (LOLER),
— the Provision and Use of Work Equipment Regulations 1998 (PUWER),

— The Economic Operator will be required to ensure safe operation of the lift equipment, prolong equipment life, minimise equipment out of service time and respond to breakdowns and passenger entrapments within service level agreement time scales,
— all personnel employed by the Economic Operator to deliver the contract services shall be suitably trained and technically competent,
