Section II: Object of the contract
Service category No 23: Investigation and security services, except armoured car services
Main site or location of works, place of delivery or of performance: It is anticipated that the services required will operate from one existing custody unit at Yeovil in Somerset, plus three newly constructed custody units at Patchway in South Gloucestershire, Keynsham in Bath & North East Somerset, and Bridgwater in Somerset, which are anticipated to open in March 2014. Services may also be required at such additional or alternative secure detention facilities operated by the Avon & Somerset Constabulary over the term of the contract.
The services will be provided at the facilities on a 24 hours per day, every day of the year basis. There may also be the requirement to provide services and staffing from some temporary custody facilities, for such events as the Glastonbury Festival.
At this stage, no detail can be provided on the specific locations at which services for other authorities will be provided.
It is anticipated that the initial duration of the contract will be 4 years, with the option for the Contracting Authority to extend for a further period of up to 3 years, in increments of 12 months, giving a potential, overall contract duration of 7 years.
It is also intended at the date of this notice that the custody, detainee transport and identification services procured via the tender process envisaged by this notice could be made available to other named forces, as detailed below:
Wiltshire Police; Lincolnshire Police; Hampshire Constabulary; Dorset Police; Cheshire Constabulary; Dyfed-Powys Police; Nottinghamshire Police; Hertfordshire Constabulary and the Metropolitan Police.
Prospective bidders should be aware that none the forces listed above have committed to appoint the bidder who is successful in this procurement exercise for all or any of their respective requirements for services of the kind described in this notice.
The estimated annual value of the services required by Avon and Somerset Constabulary is as follows:-
Custody GBP 2,9million – GBP 3,5million
Identification GBP 300 000 – GBP 400 000
Detainee Transport: Avon and Somerset Constabulary do not currently operate a dedicated Detainee Transport system. The annual value is anticipated in the region of GBP 250 000 to GBP 600 000.
In light of the fact that, as described above, other forces named in this notice have yet to give any firm commitment as to their likely participation in the contract that results from this procurement exercise, it is not possible to give any meaningful estimate of the potential overall value of the services required by those forces. However, as a very approximate indication, if all of the other forces in question chose to purchase via this procurement exercise all of their requirements for custody, detainee transport and identification services, the total annual value of services under the contract(s) resulting from this exercise could be in the region of GBP 120million – GBP 140million.
