Description

 

The University of Birmingham invites tenders for the provision of Removals and Relocations Services. The intention is to establish a Framework Agreement with either a Provider or several Providers in whom the University can place confidence in to carry out a variety of Removals and Relocations Services projects.

This tender will cover the provision of all types of removals and relocations services as and when required. The precise scope of the works will be varied, but will generally include the packing and unpacking of all items, including books, files, IT equipment, personal equipment, scientific equipment and general office furniture. A work instruction order will be issued for each job.

Time is likely to be of the essence and the timescales given by the University must be adhered to. Due to the nature of the building works associated with removals, dates for items to be relocated may be subject to change from time to time.

Whilst the provision has not been tendered in Lots, there is a strong likelihood that Bidders may specialise in large-scale removals or smaller scale jobs. This will be taken into account at contract award although Providers may also be considered for all type of jobs if this is deemed appropriate also.

The Framework Agreement with the selected Provider(s) will initially cover a one (1) year period (with extension options for up to a further three (3) years). Anticipated Contract start date is 1st August 2021.
The overall budget for this project is up to ?400,000.00 excluding VAT. There will be no commitment to either the total amount of money to be spent or the number of items to be purchased.

The University of Birmingham is not bound to accept the lowest or any Tender, and reserves the right to cancel the tender process at any point and will not be liable for any cancellation costs incurred by any Tenderer.
