II.1.4)

Short description of the contract or purchase(s)
Crown Commercial Service as the contracting authority has put in place a pan government Framework Agreement for use by UK public sector bodies (and any future successors to these organisations), which include Central Government Departments and their Arm's Length Bodies and Agencies, Non Departmental Public Bodies, NHS bodies and Local Authorities.

The above contracting authority(s) had a need for Grants and Programmes Services (GP&S).

The Services covered by the Procurement were sub-divided into 5 Lots, namely:

Lot 1: G&PS Administration Services;

Lot 2: Communication, Promotions and Support to understand G&PS;

Lot 3: G&PS Policy Design and Implementation;

Lot 4: G&PS Programme Evaluation;

Lot 5: G&PS Managed Service.

Each Lot set out the scope of work that a Supplier would be required to undertake under each lot.

Contracting Authority Call Off requirements under a Lot may be for 1, any number and combination of, or all the Services within that specific Lot.

Suppliers had the opportunity to bid for any of Lots 1 to 4. Lot 5 was different from the other Lots (1-4) in terms of bidding requirements in that Suppliers did not bid directly for, but expressed an interest in Lot 5, and become eligible to be awarded Lot 5 by virtue of having bid for and been successful at all of Lots 1, 2 and 3 inclusive. If a Supplier was successful at Lots 1, 2 and 3 inclusive then they were eligible and were awarded Lot 5, either as Lot 5 on its own (if indicated in the response to Attachment 2, Participation requirement and Selection Questionnaire SQ1.3 that only want to be awarded Lot 5) or as part of a multiple lot award i.e. Lots 1, 2, 3 and 5. If Suppliers failed to be successful at any Lot out of Lots 1, 2 or 3 then they have not been considered for award of Lot 5, either on its own or as part of a multi Lot award.

If an interest was expressed in Lot 5 or bid submitted for other Lots as well as having expressed an interest in Lot 5, then failure to get the required Lots for award of Lot 5 did not prevent Suppliers from being considered for (in line with evaluation procedures at paragraphs 9 onward in Attachment 1 ITT) and being successful in any of the other Lot(s) that had bid for (i.e. Lots 1, 2, 3 or 4).

Suppliers were able to bid for and be successful (in accordance with evaluation procedures and final decision to award at paragraphs 8 and 12 in the ITT) on multiple Lots i.e. successful suppliers were not limited on the number of Lots they may appear on.

Suppliers on the Framework Agreement will only be able to bid for Call Off Contracts competed under the Lot in which the Supplier is listed — the Lot at which the Supplier has been successful at this Framework level Procurement. Where a Supplier has bid for Lots 1, 2 and 3 and expressed an interest in Lot 5 and is successful in their bid they had the option of being listed on Lots 1, 2, 3 and 5 or on Lot 5 only. If a Supplier choose to be on Lot 5 only they will not be permitted to participate in competitions for services under Lots 1, 2 or 3. Suppliers are deemed not capable of delivering the services under Lots 1, 2 and 3 if they elected to be on Lot 5 only.

The duration of the framework agreement is 2 years plus the option for 2 12-month extensions (potentially a 4 year total framework).

Further information on transparency can be found at: https://www.gov.uk/government/publications/procurement-and-contracting-transparency-requirements-guidance

Any orders placed under this Framework Agreement will form a separate contract under the scope of this Framework between the supplier and the specific requesting other contracting body. The Contracting Authority and other contracting bodies utilising the Framework reserve the right to use any electronic portal during the life of the agreement.

The duration referenced in Section II.2) is for the placing of orders.

The value provided in Section II.1.4) is only an estimate. We cannot guarantee to suppliers any business through this framework agreement.

The scope of services under this Framework Agreement are wider than any previous public sector agreement in this area. The scope of services under this Agreement also sees the public sector operating in a relatively new market in terms of potential demand and supply. The value range for this Framework Agreement reflects and accommodates these factors.

We are committed to developing constructive relationships with suppliers and are keen to generate maximum competition in all of our procurements to deliver best value and sustainable cost savings for the taxpayer. The outcome of the evaluation process is entirely dependent on the competitive strength of individual bid submissions, regardless of bidder's size or place on existing / previous arrangements. We are committed to treating all suppliers fairly and all feedback and complaints are given full and fair consideration. If at any stage we believe that a mistake has been made by us, please be assured that we will rectify it to the extent that we can legally do so. In order to complain you must 1st be registered on the eSourcing tool for the relevant procurement event. All complaints must be raised via the eSourcing tool messaging facility. If, following response to your complaint, you are still unsatisfied at the outcome of a procurement competition then you should seek your own independent legal advice on your way forward. Please refer to Part 3 chapter 6 (Applications to the Court) of the Public Contracts Regulations 2015 for further information. Legal services to Crown Commercial Service are provided by Government Legal Department. Please note that service of any proceedings by email is subject to prior agreement with the Head of Litigation at the Government Legal Department Solicitor's Department and is not routinely given.
