DfE SRC — provision of supply and installation of audio visual equipment and provision of support services for Southern Regional College. The scope of this contract is to give access to supply, installation and support of audio visual equipment. Initially this will be based on our known requirements in the new builds in Armagh and Banbridge campuses which will allow installation to begin on 18.3.2020 and 15.5.2020 respectively (based on current projected schedule and subject to change, dates may pull forward or push back). A small sample install will be required in advance of these dates for testing purposes. Completion dates will be agreed with the contractor but must be fully completed within 1 month of starting the project on each site. The project in Craigavon plus other refresh work is likely to follow as required and as budget is confirmed.

Other Information

The successful contractor's performance on this contract will be managed as per the specification and regularly monitored (see Procurement Guidance Note 01/12 — Contract management — Procedures and principles). Contractors not delivering on contract requirements is a serious matter. It means the public purse is not getting what it is paying for. If a contractor fails to reach satisfactory levels of contract performance they will be given a specified time to improve. If, after the specified time, they still fail to reach satisfactory levels of contract performance, the matter will be escalated to senior management in CPD for further action. If this occurs and their performance still does not improve to satisfactory levels within the specified period, it may be regarded as an act of grave professional misconduct and they may be issued with a notice of unsatisfactory performance and this contract may be terminated. A central register of such notices for supplies and services contracts will be maintained and published on the CPD website. Any contractor in receipt of a notice of unsatisfactory performance will be required to declare this in future tender submissions for a period of 3 years from the date of issue of the notice. It may also result in the contractor being excluded from all procurement competitions being undertaken by Centres of Procurement Expertise on behalf of bodies covered by the Northern Ireland Procurement Policy.
