Description of the goods or services required
We are facing some exceptional times in relation to the current Covid 19 (Coronavirus) Pandemic. Herefordshire Council like all local authorities are attempting to build some local resilience to ensure the supply of personal protective equipment for social workers, other front line support workers and volunteers reacting to the pandemic and supporting our communities.
We are looking to identify suppliers or holders of PPE in the county or region, who are able to respond to this request and who can supply PPE or Hand Sanitiser gel (Trading standards approved recipe and effective as Covid -19 sanitiser ) to meet our requirements.
The following PPE items are of particular interest however we will consider equivalent and/or alternative items:
Item Product Details
Masks FFP3V Valved Face Mask
Glove- LP Latex Gloves Pre Powdered
Glove- PF Latex Exam Gloves Powder Free
Gloves Nitrile Powder Free Disposable Glove
Gloves Nitrile 2.6mil Exam Gloves
Sleeves Plastic Disposable OverSleeves
Eye Protection Glasses/Goggles/Face Shields
Aprons Plastic Disposable Apron
The process and requirements will develop over time, so please keep an eye out via this portal, but in the meantime we are looking for suppliers to respond via the messaging element of this opportunity using the attached XL sheet with the following information. Please do not convert this sheet to .pdf as we intend to compile your responses into a document for use by our delivery teams.
1. Company name, address, email, telephone number, web site (if you have one).
2. The type and quantity of PPE you have available, Specifications (British standards etc), any lead times applicable, quantities available, price list (and any discounts for quantity).
3. Whether you take credit/debit cards/payment cards, hold an account with the council already, and/or whether you are willing to enter into a contract with the council (where larger orders are required).
4. Whether you offer direct delivery, postal delivery and /or collection (by prior arrangement).
Broadly we are interested in local suppliers (Herefordshire and surrounding counties) who are able to react quickly in the short term whist we look to put in place longer term arrangements as required.
If you wish to donate any items of PPE to our volunteers and front line staff please also get in touch as that would be much appreciated also.
Thank you in advance for your consideration.
