Cllr Lynden Stowe, Deputy Leader and Cabinet Member for Finance and Change, sought Cabinet approval to conduct a tender process for the procurement of a four year framework agreement and call-off contracts thereunder relating to the supply of medium and large asset management and property related services and/or projects. The council’s total estimated aggregate spend under the proposed framework agreement is £140m.
This Major Works Framework would also be offered to other public sector bodies within Gloucestershire giving them the ability to access these contractors and services, entering their own contracts with suppliers using GCC’s framework agreement.
Having considered all of the information, Cabinet noted the report and
Delegate authority to the Assistant Director of Asset Management & Property Services, in consultation with the Cabinet Member for Finance and Change and the Executive Director of Corporate Resources to:
Conduct a competitive procurement process in respect of a 4-year
Major Works Framework Agreement relating to the delivery of medium
and large asset management and property related works, services
and/or projects where the value of such works, services and/or
projects under any individual call-off contract thereunder is
£150k or more.
Framework Agreement shall be divided into the following two
and shall permit District Councils, Parish, Town Councils, the NHS, and Academies in Gloucestershire to use such Framework Agreement to acquire works, services and/or projects under their own call-off contracts.
2) Appoint each of the preferred tenderers to the relevant Lot under the proposed Framework Agreement.
3) Procure and award as many Call-Off Contracts as may be required by the council under the relevant Lots of the proposed Framework Agreement, whose combined aggregate values, including the aggregate value of call-off contracts awarded by the public sector bodies described in Recommendation 1) above, shall not exceed £140m.
In the event that the value of any single proposed call-off contract under such Framework Agreement will exceed £500,000, a separate key decision shall be sought in order to approve the award of such call-off contract in accordance with the Council’s Constitution.
