Further information regarding this Contract Opportunity can be found within the Tender documentation, which is available in the relevant Public Contracts Scotland (PCS) section for this procurement process.

Clarifications may be sought through the question and answer facility for this procurement exercise on the PCS web portal.

Zero Waste Scotland is not using the ESPD module on the Public Contracts Scotland (PCS) web portal for this procurement exercise. Tenderers must therefore download the ESPD (Scotland) provided for this procurement exercise as an additional document to prepare a response.

Further information and instructions relating to the ESPD (Scotland) for this procurement exercise are provided in both this Contract Notice and the ‘Supporting Information for Selection Criteria’ document. This includes details of the questions used, their weightings and the scoring methodology that will be used to evaluate responses. Tenderers should read the information and instructions provided carefully before submitting a response, as failure to follow instructions may result in your ESPD (Scotland) response being ruled non-compliant.

Tenderers should note that Zero Waste Scotland will carry out due diligence checking on statements made within ESPD (Scotland) responses. A request from Zero Waste Scotland to provide evidence in support of statements made by a tenderer in their ESPD (Scotland) response does not infer that the tender or the tenderer has been successful.

Quality submissions will be scored using the Scottish Government's recommended scoring convention:

4 — Excellent: response is completely relevant and excellent overall. The response is comprehensive, unambiguous and demonstrates a thorough understanding of the requirement and provides details of how the requirement will be met in full.

3 — Good: response is relevant and good. The response is sufficiently detailed to demonstrate a good understanding and provides details on how the requirements will be fulfilled.

2 — Acceptable: response is relevant and acceptable. The response addresses a broad understanding of the requirement but may lack details on how the requirement will be fulfilled in certain areas.

1 — Poor: response is partially relevant but generally poor. The response addresses some elements of the requirement but contains insufficient / limited details or explanation to demonstrate how the requirement will be fulfilled.

0 — Unacceptable: nil or inadequate response. Fails to demonstrate an ability to meet the requirement.

Zero Waste Scotland anticipates that contract award will occur within 6 weeks of the deadline for tender submissions, however tenderers should note that this timetable may be subject to change.

Zero Waste Scotland is unable and unwilling to respond to any questions raised by tenderers after the deadline for tender submissions and while the procurement exercise remains live.

No work is guaranteed for any supplier appointed to any lot over the term of the agreement, including any optional extension periods.
