II.3)Information on framework agreement
II.4)Short description of nature and quantity or value of supplies or services:
The Scottish Government intends to procure a contract for a Quality Assurance and Audit Agent to assure services delivered by the Service Provider in respect of the new national scheme (“the Scheme”). The Service Provider for the Scheme has yet to be appointed (Prior Information Notice Ref APR172224: relates). The Scheme is to go live in 2015 and the Quality Assurance and Audit Agent contract will be operational on a similar timeframe. The Scheme is centred around the installation of insulation, heating and micro-generation measures in the homes of households who are identified as living in fuel poverty. The Quality Assurance and Audit Agent will inspect a proportion of installations in dwellings across Scotland for adherence to contractual requirements as well as checking other aspects of delivery (such as confirming that households given a service under the contract are indeed eligible to receive that service). The Scottish Government will also have the power to ask the Quality Assurance and Audit Agent to conduct ad hoc audits to examine any part of the Service Provider's operation, not least to ensure that financial, reporting or other data submitted to the Scottish Government is accurate.
