II.2.4)Description of the procurement:

The Defence Clothing Team, which forms part of Leidos Supply Ltd is considering the requirement for the manufacture and supply of Scottish Parade Wear consisting of kilts, trews, plaids, the estimated value for this contract will be between GBP 1 500 000 and GBP 2 000 000.

This framework will have a maximum term of 5 years (3 + 2 years with years 4 and 5 being an option period. Years 1 and 2 being firmly priced and years 3, 4 and 5 being subject to a VOP clause).

The maximum possible term of 5 years is considered justifiable in that the subject matter of the framework (Scottish Parade Wear) is considered highly specialist and tenderers therefore need to invest considerable time and expense up-front in training up apprentices specifically to become skilled in the production of these items. Feedback from the market has indicated that it is difficult to justify such up-front expense if the contract terms is less than 5 years.

Taking into account commercial considerations also, (specifically the possibility that a slightly longer term is likely to incentivise a winning Supplier to commit to MOQs for raw materials thereby increasing the potential for cost savings and price reductions) it has been decided to advertise the opportunity as a 5-year (3 + 2) framework.
