Grounds Maintenance Machinery Supply
Portsmouth City Council ('the council') is inviting quotations from suitably qualified suppliers to supply grounds maintenance equipment to replace the existing inventory. The Grounds Maintenance Team undertake various green maintenance works across the Cities public lands and parks. New machinery is required to replace the existing machinery used for this work.
We are seeking to have the equipment delivered and on site, ready to use by mid-March 2020 where possible, although this is flexible.
Tenderers are asked to price each piece of equipment individually where possible. Tenderers do not have to submit a cost for each listed item.
The council reserves the right to purchase the equipment using the selection criteria covered in Section 11 and either:
• Purchase each piece of equipment on an individual basis from different suppliers.
• Purchase the full list from one supplier where this offers the best value.
• Purchase a number of items in a group where this offers best value, e.g. via a discount.
A selection of the existing Council equipment is available to be included as part exchange and listed in Appendix 2 - Machinery Inventory Pricing List.
All supplied equipment should have a 12 months warranty.
