The framework will be available for use by any member institution of the UK Higher Education Purchasing Consortia:

The estimated value of the agreement is 4 000 000 GBP over the duration of the agreement including the extension period (1 000 000 GBP per annum). Tenderers are asked to note that there is no guarantee of demand or even any business for successful Contractors on the Framework Agreement. However, agreements are created on a collaborative basis with user input from institutions. This process is designed to capture user requirements and create agreements which meet users’ needs. Additionally, NEUPC through its regional procurement account management structure and other regional UK HE consortia via their tailored client management approaches actively promote contracts and their usage to ensure maximum contract uptake amongst the participating institutions.
The framework agreement is available to all for use by any member institution of the UK Higher Education Purchasing Consortia. They will, in the same way that NEUPC will, promote the framework agreement to their own consortia members.
The Framework Agreement will be uploaded to www.GeM.ac.uk. The GeM contracts database contains all HE and FE sector, consortia negotiated contracts. Institutions are able to access all national contracts and regional contracts from their regional purchasing consortium through GeM.
The framework agreement award will be based on the most economically advantageous tender, (MEAT). Award criteria will be a combination of both financial and non-financial factors and will consider:
— Price – 50 %,
— Quality – 50 %.
Estimated value excluding VAT: 4 000 000 GBP

Unless your employer or company has been given an exemption under Section 4(4) of the Private Security Industry Act 2001, it is a criminal offence to undertake the licensable activities of a cash and valuables in transit operative without an SIA licence. Further information can be found at http://www.sia.homeoffice.gov.uk/Pages/licensing-cvit.aspx.
