Notice Abstract

The PSNU require a contractor to supply and delivery of Public Order Baselayers and Balaclavas. The PSNI currently has a number of officers who perform duty in a public order capacity or train officers in those duties. The Uniform and Protective Measures Committee (UPMC) have directed that these officers must have suitable clothing to enable them to perform their range of duties. By necessity, these items must provide a greater level of protection. The wearing of flame retardant underwear and balaclavas by officers in some situations will assist in the deceleration of the spread of flames and help dissipate ensuing high temperatures. These items will also assist with the dispersion and evaporation of sweat, thus reducing the possibility of heatstroke. The contract shall be for an initial period of 36 months with 1 extension of 24 months by agreement of both parties. The successful supplier should note that the prices are to be fixed for an initial period of 36 months.

VI.3) Additional information

The successful contractor’s performance on this contract will be managed as per the specification and regularly monitored (see Procurement Guidance Note 01/12 — Contract management — Procedures and principles). Contractors not delivering on contract requirements is a serious matter. It means the public purse is not getting what it is paying for. If a contractor fails to reach satisfactory levels of contract performance they will be given a specified time to improve. If, after the specified time, they still fail to reach satisfactory levels of contract performance, the matter will be escalated to senior management in CPD for further action. If this occurs and their performance still does not improve to satisfactory levels within the specified period, it may be regarded as an act of grave professional misconduct and they may be issued with a notice of unsatisfactory performance and this contract may be terminated. A central register of such notices for supplies and services contracts will be maintained and published on the CPD website. Any contractor in receipt of a notice of unsatisfactory performance will be required to declare this in future tender submissions for a period of 3 years from the date of issue of the notice. It may also result in the contractor being excluded from all procurement competitions being undertaken by Centres of Procurement expertise on behalf of bodies covered by the Northern Ireland Procurement Policy.
