INVITATION TO TENDER FOR THE DESIGN, SUPPLY, INSTALLATION, COMMISSIONING AND MAINTENANCE OF LIBRARY BUILDING AUTOMATION SOLUTION FOR DUBLIN CITY LIBRARIES
My Open Library, which offers extended opening hours to library members on a self-service basis outside normal opening hours, seven days a week, from 8am to 10pm, 365 days a year is the latest development in Library Automation.
The full range of services are available during staffed hours including book borrowing, study spaces and ICT facilities will be available during My Open Library hours. Library users will have access to the library at times that suit them best and the library is strengthened as a focal point for community engagement.
Dublin City Libraries (Dublin City Council) intends to establish a Four Year, Single Party Framework Agreement for the design, supply, installation, commissioning and maintenance of a building automation solution for 1 library initially (Pembroke Library), with the possibility of expanding the service to other libraries in our branch network.
For the avoidance of all doubt, the maximum Framework Agreement Term is 4 years, however Contracts may be awarded which extend beyond the lifetime of the Framework.
It is emphasised that a framework agreement constitutes no guarantee to purchase a specific quantity of services from a particular economic operator. Indeed, Dublin City Council reserves the right to operate outside of the framework agreement at its discretion, particularly should it become apparent that doing so would offer greater value for money.
Proposed systems will be tailored to suit the facilities and service requirements of each branch, but can be generally assumed to consist of the following:
Access control equipment; building automation equipment to integrate with existing hardware and fittings; monitoring and management software; CCTV equipment; staff training; maintenance of all hardware and software provided;
The agreement does not include:
• Remote monitoring of CCTV or intruder/fire alarms
• Maintenance of existing CCTV or intruder/fire alarms
