Description

Leicester City Council require a person/ organisation to provide independent expert insurance valuations for the museums service’s collections, identifying and individually valuing high value items (those worth over £10,000) and bulk-valuing the remainder by type.

We require bound illustrated and electronic valuations for the following types of collections:

• Fine Art including oil paintings, watercolours, sculpture and prints including the German Expressionist collection.

• Decorative and World Arts comprising furniture, European and Oriental ceramics, costume and textiles, glass, silver and craft items.

• Social History including the Regimental collection of medals, silver and other ephemera.

• Technology including beam engines, road vehicles, typewriters and radios.

• Antiquities including coins, clocks and Egyptology.

• Archaeology including Roman pottery and mosaics.

• Natural Sciences including geology and taxidermy.

This is a one-off project and must be completed this financial year.

Experience of valuing museum collections for insurance purposes is an essential requirement. References will be required from at least one other museum before contract is awarded.

Interested Organisations should complete the attached Selection Questionnaire.

Organisations will be assessed solely on the evaluation of Questions 6.1 & 6.2 in the Selection Questionnaire and references.

Organisations meeting a minimum score of 75% will then be asked to attend a site visit or discuss finer details of the collections to enable them to provide a quotation.

Please complete the selection questionnaire (link to the document is below) and return to procurementquotations@leicester.gov.uk in order to be considered for this work.

This should be returned by 9.00am on 13th November 2012 at the very latest.

Organisations are asked to regularly check this opportunity on Source Leicestershire for any updates. Any advertised opportunity might be updated or removed at short notice due to unforeseen circumstances.
