Sandwell MBC Streetscene (Streetscene) is responsible for co-ordinating plant hire throughout Sandwell. Streetscene is working with the Transform Sandwell procurement team in order to establish a framework agreement for the provision of plant hire to supply a range of plant, including compressors, rollers, plate vibrators, excavators, tippers and other specialist plant to meet the plant hire requirements of Sandwell MBC (the Council). Streetscene wishes to invite interested suppliers (tenderers) to participate in a tender exercise in relation to the framework agreement.
Transform Sandwell is a strategic partnership.
Between Sandwell Council & British Telecom.
Delivering a range of corporate and support services over a 15 year period, including procurement and finance.
The framework agreement will last for 3 years,
With the option to extend for a further year. Annual expenditure for Plant Hire is estimated to be in the region of 100 000 GBP (this would be 400 000 GBP if the option to extend for the additional year was taken). These figures are intended to be used as a guide only and is not a guarantee of the level of business that will be generated from this framework agreement.
The Council is following an open procedure for award of this framework agreement. Only those submissions which meet the minimum selection criteria will be evaluated. The minimum selection criteria are minimum standards which the Council will require its appointed contractor(s) to meet or exceed and so are of a pass/fail nature. These are: mandatory exclusions (such as any conviction under Regulation 23 of the Public Contract Regulations 2006), economic & financial standing and insurance cover. It is unlikely that any tenderer which fails on the minimum selection criteria will proceed to the next round of evaluation, although the Council does reserve the right to consider each case on its merits, and assess the risks and implications involved in proceeding. Tenderers.
That meet the minimum selection criteria will then be scored on the evaluation criteria. Each plant contract award will be determined individually on price (90 %), availability (5 %) and delivery response (5 %). Tenderers can bid for as many of the plant items as they wish, but for each plant they bid against they must provide 3 prices, one each for daily, weekly and monthly. The Council reserves the right to award the contracts to one or more contractors per plant. Once the framework is awarded, on each occasion that a relevant council employee has to order a specific type of plant they must purchase from the supplier who has the relevant plant available for delivery at the required time. Where more than one supplier has the plant available for delivery at the required time the employee must purchase the plant from the cheapest of those suppliers.
All orders placed under the framework agreement will be in accordance with Sandwell MBCs Terms and Conditions for the Supply of Goods and Services and the Special Conditions of Contract for Plant Hire.
