The contracting authority considers that this contract may be suitable for economic operators that are small or medium enterprises (SMEs). However, any selection of tenderers will be based solely on the criteria set out for the procurement. All communications shall be in English. Any contract or agreement resulting from any invitation to tender will be considered as a contract made in England according to English Law and subject to the exclusive jurisdiction of the English courts.
The OC does not bind itself to accept any tender and reserves the right to accept any part of the tender unless the tenderer expressly stipulates to the contrary. The Freedom of Information Act 2000 imposes a statutory obligation on public bodies to make information they are holding available on request. Tenderers should be aware of the OC’s obligations under the Act, whereby information provided by tenderers in response to this advertisement may be requested by a third party. The OC expressly reserves the right:
(i) to make whatever changes it may see fit to the content and structure of the procurement process;
(ii) to require further information or clarification from a tenderer before considering its response;
(iii) to exclude a tenderer from the procurement process if it is subsequently determined that any information supplied was inaccurate, incomplete or untrue and was relied upon for selection purposes;
(iv) to cancel this procurement at any stage; and
(v) not to award any contract as a result of the procurement process commenced by publication of this notice.
Under no circumstances will the OC or any of its advisers, be liable for any costs or expenses borne by any tenderer or any of its advisers in responding to this contract notice or at any stage in the process.
There will be the opportunity through this procurement for tenderers to participate in discussions with CGF Partnerships Ltd (‘CGFP’), which is a joint venture established between the Commonwealth Games Federation and Sportfive UK Ltd, in relation to a potential opportunity for the successful supplier to provide equivalent goods and services at subsequent editions of the Commonwealth Games in 2026 and 2030. The host cities for 2026 and 2030 editions are not as yet identified. The opportunity would be set out in a multi-games option agreement (Option Agreement) to be entered into between CGFP and the successful tenderer under which CGFP may in its sole discretion require the successful tenderer to provide the equivalent goods and services in relation to the 2026 and/or 2030 Games. If CGFP exercises its option under the option agreement in respect of the 2026 and/or 2030 editions of the Games, the successful tenderer would be required to enter into an agreement with the organising committee established for the relevant edition of the games for the provision of the equivalent goods and services.
However, in the event that the CGFP determines that there is insufficient economic benefit and/or supplier interest in letting an agreement with options to extend for 2026 and 2030 games, or if the successful tenderer is not interested in the opportunity or in concluding an option agreement with CGFP, the successful tenderer will enter into a contract with the OC only in respect of the goods and services to be provided in relation to the 2022 Games only.
As previously noted, the evaluation for look, wayfinding and signage for the Birmingham 2022 Games in this procurement will be on the basis of the requirements for Birmingham 2022 Games only, and there shall be no obligation on or disadvantage to tenderers in respect of them not wishing to take up the potential multi-games opportunity in relation to 2026 and 2030 editions of the Games or not agreeing to enter into an option agreement with CGFP.
It is estimated that the aggregate contract value for the 2022 Games and subsequent editions of the Games in 2026 and 2030 will be GBP 22 500 000 to GBP 28 500 000, depending on whether CGFP exercises its option as summarised above in relation to one or both of the Games in 2026 and 2030. Each subsequent edition of the Games has an estimated contract value of GBP 7 500 000 to GBP 9 500 000.
