United Kingdom-Newcastle upon Tyne: Travel management services
Contract award notice
Results of the procurement procedure
Section I: Contracting authority
Section II: Object
Travel Management Services
NEPO have established a framework contract for the provision of a travel management service. The framework contract will provide for booking of all rail and air travel tickets, all hotel accommodation and any other ancillary requirements related to business travel. NEPO507 is to be a single provider solution which will replace the existing framework contract for travel management services expiring 31 July 2020.
NEPO procured the framework contract using the open tender procedure. Tenderers were evaluated in accordance with the award criteria contained within the invitation to tender documents. The most economically advantageous tenderer was awarded the framework contract. NEPO does not give any guarantee and/or warrant the actual value of the services (if any) which will be placed with the successful provider by any contracting authority using the framework contract pursuant to this process and accepts no liability thereof. In accordance with the framework contract, each contracting authority will enter into a call-off contract. The call-off contract is to be entered into by both the contracting authority and awarded provider and will be based on the terms and conditions as provided for in the framework contract.
The framework contract is for a period of 48 months with the options to extend for up to a further 2 x 12 month periods. This is due to the commercial and contractual complexity of the framework contract combined with the cost of administrating the procurement for NEPO, contracting authorities and the successful tenderers.
