— major adaptations works including property extensions, complex cases where major adaptions are made internally to a property to meet the client’s needs,

— ramps: permanent and temporary ramps to allow access into and out of the home.

Grants are awarded up to the maximum of 30 000 GBP. In some cases by exception the value may be exceeded and either additional funding is applied for or the difference is made up by the occupant of the property. In these circumstances the additional funding will be determined prior to award of the contract.

The framework will provide a mechanism for these works to be carried via either direct award for projects under the value of 20 000 GBP or via a mini competition over the value of 20 000 GBP.

The number of contractors the authority is seeking is undefined as all tenderers meeting the minimum scoring criteria, as stated in the tender documents, will be permitted to the framework.

Tenderers will be required to complete a schedule of rates, which will form a fixed schedule of rates that will be called off by direct award. When a direct award is used, contractors will be chosen in rotation. The number of rotations will be determined by the number of successful tenderers. It is envisaged to be 2/3 per rotation.

When a mini competition is used, all contractors on the framework will be invited to participate.

The authority does not provide any guarantee as to the volume or the value of the works orders to be issued.
