Section II: Object
The Supply of Arboricultural Works on Trees Affected by Ash Dieback and Other Health Related Issues (DPS) On-Going Application
Carmarthenshire County Council established a Dynamic Purchasing System (DPS) for the supply of services relating to Ash Dieback and other tree felling works on 9 November 2020 for an initial period of up to 4 years. The DPS will be operated on a fully electronic basis and is open to new entrants throughout its term who meet the minimum criteria specified in the tender documents. Contractors will be required to be suitably qualified and experienced to undertake works primarily associated with Highways, however the DPS will also provide for Ash Dieback and other tree felling works on housing sites, industrial estates, school and other sites located and owned within Carmarthenshire. Additionally, there may be the requirement for works to be undertaken on private land at the Council’s request and emergency tree felling works.
Carmarthenshire County Council (‘the Council’) is seeking suitably qualified and experienced contractors to undertake Ash Dieback and other tree felling works within a Dynamic Purchasing System (‘DPS’). At this stage, the Council is considering an initial period of 4 years which includes the option to extend in 1 year periods for a further period of up to 4 years or until the agreement is no longer fit for purpose.
Carmarthenshire County Council has the second largest length of highways network in Wales, covering 3 500 km of public highway, with 110 schools, some of which contain an extensive number of trees. Also maintained are parks, playgrounds and open spaces. We also maintain land on housing estates and social services establishments, Council owned buildings and leisure centres.
The proposed DPS will predominately deal with the removal of Trees infected with Hymenoscyphus fraxineus (Ash Dieback). A survey undertaken in 2019 of the A and B roads in the County identified trees for removal as they are showing more than 50 % dieback of the crown. Recent school surveys have highlighted sites that need trees removing. Trees showing at least 50 % dieback of the crown during our surveys have been tagged with orange ribbon or marked with orange spray paint. Diseased trees within the highway verge will be removed by the County Council. The Council will also liaise with private landowners and will be offering its services to take down trees adjacent the highway provided they agree to pay the costs for felling and provided it does not impact on the overall programme. Contractors will be asked to identify separate costs where an opportunity exists to work with private landowners.
12-month rolling period after the initial 4 years for a further period of up to 4 years.
There is no limit on the number of bidders that may join the DPS.
A Dynamic Purchasing System (DPS) is a two-stage process. In the initial setup stage, all bidders who meet the selection criteria and are not excluded will be admitted to the DPS. There is no limit on the number of bidders that may join a DPS. Individual contracts are awarded during the second stage. In this stage, the Council invites all suppliers on the DPS to bid for the specific contract.
