Other Information

Candidates should read and refer to the Instructions to Candidates document (ITC). Failure to comply with the ITC may result in a Candidate's SPD submission being rejected. Candidates may be excluded from this competition if they are in any of the situations referred to in regulation 58 of the Public Contracts (Scotland) Regulations 2015. Section I.2 – Authority bodies which can use the Contract to access the services are the Authority and the Authority’s arms' length external organisations, which include, but may not be limited to: Routes to Work Ltd, Fusion Assets Ltd, North Lanarkshire Properties LLP and NL Property Investments Ltd. Part II: Information Concerning the Bidder and Part VI: Concluding statements Candidates unable to complete this part of the SPD may be excluded from the Procurement. The Authority has determined that the application of multiple lots will not be utilised for this Procurement. The decision not to utilise multiple lots is justified as follows; (i) a competitive market exists for the full scope of requirements; (ii) delivery of inter-linked service provision is best delivered through a single provider and is a fundamental characteristic of the Enterprise Project delivery model; (iii) the cost of procurement is likely to be higher if lotting is used; (iv) the cost of contract management is also likely to be higher; and (v) lotting may lose potential economies of scale and therefore value of delivering across the geography of North Lanarkshire. The estimated contract value is 450m GBP over the full contract term (including all extensions) based on the Authority’s estimated future budgets for the Services. There is no guarantee of this level of business. The estimated contract value relates to any Services (Core Services and Core Programmes) which may be reasonably required to maintain the Affected Properties over the contract term as set out in the procurement documents, the provision of such services not to be constrained by the estimated contract value. The procurement will be conducted in accordance with the Public Contracts Scotland Regulations 2015 as amended, and any successor legislation which may follow using the competitive procedure with negotiation as set out in Regulation 30 of the Public Contracts Scotland Regulations 2015. The use of the competitive procedure with negotiation is justified on the basis that the Contract cannot be awarded without prior negotiations. The nature and complexity of the Contract and the need to mitigate risk on technical, financial, legal and reputational dimensions necessitates negotiations. The Authority is committed to ensuring delivery of high quality services and to achieving best value through the contract by: 1) securing continuous improvement in the performance and delivery of its function; 2) maintaining an appropriate balance between quality and whole life cost; and 3) actively contributing to sustainable development. It is expected that the Contractor will take a positive approach to the inclusion of a number of fair work practices throughout the Contract Term. Disclaimer The Authority is not liable for any costs incurred, including in respect of expressing an interest, participating in negotiation or in tendering for this opportunity. The Authority reserves the right to terminate the Procurement (or any part of it) at its own discretion. The buyer is using PCS-Tender to conduct this PQQ exercise. The Project code is 22547.

For more information see: A summary of the expected community benefits has been provided as follows: Through the Contract, the Authority is looking for an innovative, step-change approach and delivery model for community benefits which maximises opportunities and achieves significant social and economic outcomes and impact across North Lanarkshire.
