KEYWORDS & NOTES DETAILS
Notes:
The Council is seeking expressions of interest to provide a Next Generation Wireless network to cover Brighton and Hove as a service concession contract.
The Concession agreement is offered on a 5 plus 2 plus 1 year basis. The initial concession term is for a period of five (5) years. The council may, at its sole discretion exercise an extension period of two (2) years following the initial term. After this period the council may exercise (at its sole discretion) a further extension of the concession for periods up to 12 months.
This Pre-Qualification Questionnaire (‘PQQ’) is the first stage in a two stage process to appoint a preferred bidder (subject to contract). The anticipated start date for this concession is 1st April 2013 however this may be subject to change.
The Next Generation Wireless network is to be rolled out and bedded-in by a date to be agreed with the successful Bidder. The installation, support, maintenance and monitoring (capital and on-going revenue) of the network shall be at no cost to the Council. The contractor will be required to fully fund an assurance team to support the Council during the installation process.
It is envisaged that the initial coverage will be in high footfall areas including the Seafront, major tourist destinations, and the main retail areas of Brighton and Hove however the concession is not prescriptive to these areas.
