II.2.4)Description of the procurement:

 

The requirement is to have a sole supplier for workwear and PPE, who will be able to support the current and future operational requirements of HIAL and will make use of dedicated supplier knowledge and technologies, proactively managing the service. They will provide a high standard of workwear and PPE across diverse environments for a variety of job roles, including office and customer facing roles, engineering workshops, fire stations (general workwear) and environments that are exposed to extreme weather conditions.

As a principle objective of this contract, HIAL must have assurance from the supplier that all goods supplied throughout their supply chain comply with national and international standards (e.g. membership of approved bodies such as SEDEX or the Ethical Trading Initiative and compliance with International Labour Organisation core conventions) in respect of ethical working conditions and environmentally sustainable product sources, from raw materials through to manufacture and delivery of the finished garment.

It is anticipated that this new service will give HIAL opportunities such as enhanced delivery timescales, which are vital for our airports due to the critical nature of our operations. HIAL are aiming to achieve savings where possible without compromising on quality, an example of this would be the ability for HIAL to place monthly orders from across the Group, which would reduce carriage costs and associated carbon footprint.
