two.2.4) Description of the procurementII.2.4) Description of the procurement
The Public Building portfolio of the Council comprises a large variety of building types including theatres, museums, libraries, parks buildings, office blocks and Heritage buildings and structures such as Southend Pier.
Maintenance of these buildings is undertaken by the Council via external contractors.
This Lot is for Electrical Fixed Wire Inspection and Testing and PAT Testing only.
The remedial works will be undertaken under Lot 2 and 3.
The Council has concluded that its requirements are best achieved by appointing 1 contractor to deliver this service.
Please Note: tenderers may apply for more than one lot, but if successful for more than one Lot (including Lot 1), tenderers must take the decision which Lot/s they wish to accept. The reason SBC have taken this decision is that we feel it is prudent to ensure the Lot 1 – Company carrying out the Fixed Wire Testing Reports that identify the remedial repairs is not the same Company who will be carrying out the repairs under Lot 2 or 3.
For the avoidance of doubt, if a tenderer bids for Lot 1, and any combination of Lot 2 and/or 3, and is successful for Lot 1, and any other lot, then the tenderer will be asked to choose their preferred Lot. For example, if Company 1 is successful for Lot 1, Lot 2 and Lot 3 they will be offered the choice to be appointed for Lot 1 only or to be appointed for Lot 2 and to be one of the 5 suppliers on Lot 3.
If Company 1 elects to be appointed for Lot 1 then their scores for Lot 2 and Lot 3 will be removed from the tender evaluation process for Lot 2 and Lot 3. If Company 1 elects to be appointed for Lot 2 and Lot 3 then their score for Lot 1 will be removed from the evaluation process for Lot 1.
Tenderers can apply for one or more of Lots 2 and/or 3 and may be successful for more than one lot.
