This is to appoint a suitably qualified and experienced organisation to work on behalf of the Council and other public sector bodies who wish to join under a new framework agreement for the provision of a neutral vendor service.

There will be one supplier to provide a neutral vendor service covering a range of services, including, but not limited to, professional services, construction, ICT, social care and equipment etc. The spend that will go via this framework is unknown as this will depend on the number of public organisations that decide to join and how much each organisation call off the framework.

The aim is for one neutral vendor supplier to provide:

— a quick, low cost route to market that shall provide easy access to goods and services from local suppliers, SME’s and the voluntary sector,

— a simplified route to market for the authorities to access lower value, lower risk goods, services and works,

— this will be a framework agreement with one neutral vendor service provider who will source suitable sub-contractors from the market through further competition,

— the neutral vendor service provider framework agreement will be non-exclusive and would not be used for all lower value procurements, rather those where it was deemed by the authority to be the best commercial and service outcome option.

It is estimated that Ealing council's spend via this framework will be up to 18 200 000 GBP but this level of spend is not guaranteed and is just for indication. Other public bodies who join the framework may have different levels of spend.

II.2.5) Award criteria:

II.02.07) Duration in months 48
II.2.7.5) This contract is subject to renewal: yes
II.2.7.6) Description of renewals:

2 x 24 month

An extension is proposed as substantial investment is needed to provide the services i.e. start-up costs, capital investment and systems. The aim is for the framework to stimulate competition within a community of SMEs to provide low value services. To build this community will take time and the service may not be profitable for a few years, an extension will ensure commercial viability.

II.2.10) Variants will be accepted: no

II.02.12) Tenders must be presented in the form of electronic catalogues or include an electronic catalogue
