Other Information

** PREVIEW NOTICE, please check Find a Tender for full details. ** The Contracting Authority reserved the right: to hold additional rounds of negotiations with Economic Operators; to require the. submission of any further or additional information or tender submissions; to award the Contract following the submission of initial. tenders; to award the Contract following conclusion of the first round of negotiation sessions; and/or to down-select Economic Operators. following each round of negotiations. For the avoidance of doubt, final tenders will not be subject to any negotiation with the Contracting. Authority (however, they may be subject to clarification, if required, at the Contracting Authority’s absolute discretion). The Contracting... Authority reserves the right: to reject any or all SQ or tender responses and to cancel or withdraw the procurement process at any... stage; to award a contract without prior notice; to change the basis of, the procedure and the timescales set out or referred to in the... procurement documents; to require an Economic Operator to clarify its SQ or tender response in writing and/or provide additional... information; to terminate the procurement process; and/or to amend the terms and conditions of the SQ or tender evaluation process... or negotiation process. The Contracting Authority does not bind itself to accept the lowest or any tender. Economic Operators remain... responsible for all costs and expenses incurred by them or by any third party acting under instructions from the Economic Operator in... connection with taking part in this procurement process, regardless of whether such costs arise as a consequence, directly or indirectly,... of any amendments made to the procurement documents by the Contracting Authority at any time. No legally binding contract shall... arise (and an Economic Operator shall have no legitimate expectation that a contract will be entered into) until such time as entry into... the Contract has been confirmed by the Contracting Authority. Economic Operators should note that all dates, time periods and figures... in relation to values and volumes specified in this notice and the procurement documents are approximate only and the Contracting... Authority reserves the right to change any or all of them. The figure indicated in II.1.5 represents an estimated contract value range. of. £50m -£75m this range reflects the potential scale of the contract and takes into account potential optional extension periods. The. pricing. strategy applied and the setting of cost/profit margins are a commercial decision for Economic. Operators when submitting a. bid for. this competition. In addition, neither CPD nor the Contracting Authority can provide any guarantee. as to the level of business. under this. contract. The successful contractor’s performance on the contract will be regularly monitored.. 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 the. contract may be terminated. The. issue of a. Notice of Unsatisfactory Performance will 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 for a period of. twelve. months from the date of issue of the Notice. This contract will not be awarded in Lots as a single supplier is required.
