II.1.4)Short description:

Worcester City Council is inviting tenders for the provision of a building repairs and maintenance and minor works service. The service is a series of small works orders for reactive response maintenance, and some minor planned works.

The Authority contemplates that during the term the residential element of the Council’s portfolio is likely to increase during the lifetime of the contract to include up to approximately 50 units/beds of accommodation for those in most urgent need of housing. In addition, the Council is considering offering a lettings agency and management service to private landlords and wishes to retain the option of subcontracting the Council’s contract work obligations. This is a provisional scenario subject to further development by the Council.

Bidders will be asked to indicate whether they would be able to provide the extended services and confirm whether there would be any pricing considerations.

II.2.4)Description of the procurement:

To undertake repairs and maintenance and minor works at the direction of the Council under a measured term contract.

The service to be provided is described in 4 categories:

(A) reactive maintenance and repair according to a priority assigned by the Council;

(B) planned maintenance up to a maximum value of 10 000 GBP per order (subject to quotation and demonstration of best value);

(C) minor works projects up to a maximum value of 10 000 GBP per order (subject to quotation and demonstration of best value);

(D) out of hours emergency works.

The works are defined as general building works, including general plumbing but excluding mechanical and electrical works. Some general building works may require an element of mechanical or electrical work to resolve the issue, which may be requested as part of the work order.

The contractor must provide and maintain throughout the duration of the contract an ‘Out of Normal Working Hours Emergency Service’ to avoid danger to health and safety of building occupants or serious damage to buildings and other structures. This service must be provided 24 hours each day and every day of the year including weekends and holiday periods.

Properties and sites included in the service range from public buildings (mainly non-housing) and associated structures to depots, offices, car parks, allotments and communal areas within the local government boundaries of Worcester City Council. The buildings range from Listed Grade I and II, historic parks to contemporary construction as scheduled in Appendix A. Buildings may be added or omitted from the schedule over the course of the contract subject to requirements of the service.

The Authority contemplates that during the term the residential element of the Council’s portfolio is likely to increase during the lifetime of the contract to include up to approximately 50 units/beds of accommodation for those in most urgent need of housing. In addition, the Council is considering offering a lettings agency and management service to private landlords and wishes to retain the option of subcontracting the Council’s contract work obligations. This is a provisional scenario subject to further development by the Council.

Bidders are asked to indicate whether they would be able to provide the extended services and confirm whether there would be any pricing considerations.

The approximate core contract value without the additional/extended services is 1 500 000 GBP. The total approximate value of any possible extended/additional services which the Council may, at its sole discretion, incorporate into the contract shall be approximately 250 000 GBP.
