II.2.4)Description of the procurement:

 

Border Force is a law enforcement command within the Home Office (the “Authority”).

The Authority secures the UK border by carrying out immigration and customs controls for people and goods entering the UK and its priorities are to:

— deter and prevent individuals and goods that would harm the national interests from entering the United Kingdom (UK):

— facilitate the legitimate movement of individuals and trade to and from the UK,

— protect and collect customs revenues for trade crossing the border,

— provide excellent service to customers, and

— provide demonstrable effectiveness, efficiency and value for money.

The Authority detains or seizes vehicles and/or goods at the border. These are sometimes adopted for onward investigation by Her Majesty’s Revenue and Customs (HMRC), National Crime Agency (NCA) or Immigration Enforcement (IE) under the appropriate legislation. HMRC, NCA and IE also detain/seize goods through their inland operations and may also require the services described.

The Authority is seeking a managed service provider or a prime contractor who will provide a secure, efficient, auditable end-to-end service for the sale of seized vehicles and/or goods; act as a single point of contact for the Authority to deal with and handle “exceptional” items; provide services whereby vehicles are “put right” prior to sale; provide dismantling of vehicles if the most appropriate route and then onward selling of parts or destruction.

The primary supplier will be required to deliver services and have procedures to:

— prevent the loss of any goods/vehicles;

— maintain an accurate audit trail of all its activities;

— provide proof of sale/ price achieved or destruction certificates;

— provide value for money; and comply with indicative holding timelines.

Items previously sold by the Authority have included: gold bullion, toilet rolls, garden sheds and concrete blocks. Indicative quantities will be provided as part of the further engagement activity.

Volumes cannot be guaranteed but provide an historical indication as volume depends upon the output of law enforcement activity and legal court cases as to when items become ready for disposal.

You will then be given access to further information via the Authority’s eSourcing portal – https://homeoffice.app.jaggaer.com/web/login.html.

Companies which are able to offer a service solution are requested to formally register their intent to take part in this procurement by emailing Ian Gardner, Home Office Commercial at ian.gardner3@homeoffice.gov.uk.
