Section IV: Procedure

IV.1) Description

IV.1.1) Type of procedure

Open procedure - Accelerated procedure

Justification:

The Northern Ireland Housing Executive has a requirement to establish a Framework agreement (‘the Framework’) for the supply and delivery of personal protective equipment (PPE). The supplies are required to minimise the risk of transmission of Covid-19 and to ensure staff are able to provide essential public services. Due to the urgency, disruption and current shortages of PPE, adherence to the normal open procedure time limits could result in failure to obtain the required supplies.

IV.1.3) Information about a framework agreement or a dynamic purchasing system

The procurement involves the establishment of a framework agreement with a single operator.

IV.1.8) Information about Government Procurement Agreement (GPA)

The procurement is covered by the Government Procurement Agreement: No

IV.2) Administrative information

IV.2.2) Time limit for receipt of tenders or requests to participate

Date: 29/05/2020

Local time: 15:00

IV.2.4) Languages in which tenders or requests to participate may be submitted

EN

IV.2.6) Minimum time frame during which the tenderer must maintain the tender

Tender must be valid until: 26/09/2020

IV.2.7) Conditions for opening of tenders

Date: 29/05/2020

Local time: 15:30

Section VI: Complementary information

VI.1) Information about recurrence

This is a recurrent procurement: No

VI.3) Additional information

Estimated quantities of the required PPE are included in section I) of the specification. However due to the uncertainty caused by the outbreak of Covid-19 the estimated annual quantities could significantly increase or decrease. Government guidelines and the potential development of a vaccine for Covid-19 could significantly affect the quantities required. In the event that larger quantities are required the Housing Executive reserves the right to use this framework to purchase any additional types or volumes of PPE required that will help to minimise the transmission of Covid-19. The Housing Executive may use the Framework to purchase PPE for distribution to other organisations it funds (see http://www.nihe.gov.uk for further information). The estimated quantities provided in the specification (Schedule 1 of the Commercial Conditions of Contract) allow for this possibility. Those organisations will not have access to the Framework directly. The Housing Executive will manage any mini-competitions that may be required, raise any orders and make any subsequent payments.
