II.1.4)Short description:

This cleaning tender process is targeted to have a cleaning contract in place to commence on 1.4.2020.

Note: This process covers all cleaning services within the Bay Learning Trust. The process will include the creation of a select bidder list following analysis of SQ documents (within which the scoring criteria will be included). The nature of the contract demands a good local infrastructure to provide and maintain the level and standard of cleaning and support required by the school management team. Labour resource and relief cover is very important. We have set a minimum level of turnover for this tender at 250 000 GBP which takes into account the contract turnover and cash flow associations. In the SQ, this is a discretionary pass/fail question on the basis that we will consider any additional guarantees and formal assurances such as parent company guarantors or similar which must be included to support any submission. We have set a minimum employer’s (compulsory) liability.
