A managed stores solution is where a single merchant delivers a managed service for the provision of building materials to a client.

— from a dedicated standalone stores site operated solely for the client,

— a delivery service,

— using a combination of the options shown above.

Additional services the merchant may provide to a client through a managed stores solution may include, but may not be limited to:

— direct integration with client IT systems,

— dedicated stock holding,

— van stock management,

— provision of welfare facilities at existing branches/standalone stores for use by client staff,

— waste management facilities and other ancillary services,

— factoring items from third party suppliers.

Merchants providing a managed stores solution will be required to provide the full range of materials that may be required by the consortium members. Suppliers bidding on lot 5 must be able to comprehensively supply materials covering all categories named in Lots 1 to 3. Suppliers bidding on Lot 5 may choose whether or not they also bid on Lots 1 to 3 separately.
