Section III: Legal, economic, financial and technical information
Detailed within the invitation to tender document.
In this contract key performance indicators (“KPIs”) are used for the following purposes:
— to monitor performance of the contract, with a view to both the employer and principal contractor having data which they will review at progress and other meetings so that each of them can bring forward suggestions for the improvement of the performance of the contract and the delivery of the works,
— to identify performance below the performance target on a single indicator which, if continued for 3 monthly measurement periods, or applying to up to 3 KPIs, in a single month leads to a requirement for the principal contractor to produce a remedial plan, and
— to identify performance that is below the minimum standard that the employer is prepared to accept (“minimum acceptable performance”) and which, if not improved, will lead ultimately to either termination of the contract for principal contractor default or demotion on the Framework.

The contractor shall ensure that all contracts with subcontractors and suppliers which the contractor intends to procure following the award date, and which the contractor has not, before the date of this contract, already planned to award to a particular subcontractor or supplier, are advertised through the Sell2Wales portal (www.sell2wales.gov.wales) and awarded following a fair, open, transparent and competitive process proportionate to the nature and value of the contract.
Under the terms of this contract the successful supplier(s) will be required to deliver community benefits in support of the authority’s economic and social objectives. Accordingly, contract performance conditions may relate in particular to social and environmental considerations. The community benefits included in this contract are:
It is a requirement of this contract to provide core community benefits which will include employment and training opportunities for disadvantaged groups of 52 weeks training per one million pound of contract spend.
It is a requirement of this contract that the principal contractor will appoint or clearly evidence attempts to appoint Welsh SME contractors to deliver works equating to 25 % of the contract spend.
The buyer considers that this contract is suitable for consortia.
Wrexham County Borough Council will incorporate a minimum 10 calendar day standstill period at the point information on the award of the contract is communicated to tenderers. This period allows unsuccessful tenderers to seek further debriefing from the Contracting Authority before the contract is entered into. Applicants have 2 working days from the notification of the award decision to request additional debriefing and that information has to be provided a minimum of 3 working days before the expiry of the standstill period. If an appeal regarding the award of a contract has not been successfully resolved the Public Contracts Regulations 2015 (SI 2015 No 102) provide for aggrieved parties who have been harmed or are at risk of harm by a breach of the rules to take action in the High Court (England, Wales and Northern Ireland). Any such action must be brought promptly (generally within 3 months). Where a contract has not been entered into the Court may order the setting aside of the award decision or order the authority to amend any document and may award damages. If the contract has been entered into the Court may only award damages. [The purpose of the standstill period referred to above is to allow parties to apply to the Courts to set aside the award decision before the contract is entered into].
