The Contracting Authority does not intend to include a sub-contract clause as part of community benefits (as per Section 25 of the Procurement Reform (Scotland) Act 2014) in this contract for the following reason:

— we have explored this with local professionals and builders and we do not think it is feasible for us given the local resistance to the idea and also the small number of projects which we anticipate will exceed the financial limit recommended outweighing the potential benefit.

— we also work closely with our contractors and monitor work on site to ensure that there are no issues coming to light which might indicate that there is a conflict between the main contractor and any sub-contractor working for them.

Community benefits are included in this requirement. For more information click:

A summary of the expected community benefits has been provided as follows:

Community Benefits

— Albyn Housing Society aims to combat social exclusion and deprivation by promoting opportunities for training and employment for the long-term unemployed. The Contractor must be able to demonstrate its intention to integrate trainees and [long term] unemployed persons into the labor market without distinction of sex, marital status, race, ethnic origin or political or religious beliefs.

— Albyn Housing Society also specifically wishes to encourage and intends to support the education and training of young people in order that they can be equipped to work successfully in the Building and Construction Industries. The contractor is, therefore, required to recruit and train such young people.

— accordingly, the Contractor shall provide Albyn Housing Society with a Training and Employment Method Statement detailing how they will aim to achieve and manage the following training and employment objectives during the Contract Period:

1) Provide at least one (No. 1) Modern Apprenticeship (MA) place who is obtained from a source agreed by Albyn Housing Society. The placement can be across a range of disciplines to be determined by the successful contractor;

2) The application of good equal opportunities recruitment procedures and management practices by the Contractor and subcontractors;
