Plymouth businesses are being invited to a special event to find out how they can work with the Council.
The Council is launching a new round of tendering for business to deliver its maintenance contracts on things like the upkeep of war memorials and historic forts, libraries and corporate office buildings.
To explain the process a supplier information day is being held on Tuesday 27 March at Plymouth Guildhall.
Councillor Ian Darcy the Cabinet Member responsible for Finance said: “We are particularly keen on supporting local businesses and we are actively encouraging them to participate in this tendering process. However, we understand that the whole process may be daunting for companies that have not had much experience in completing the tender and bid process which is why our Facilities Management and Procurement Teams will be on hand to offer advice support and guidance.”
The process relating to the award of contracts will be explained at the event and there will be an opportunity to ask the Procurement Team questions. Tenders then go live on Saturday 7 April with contracts anticipated to be in place by October 2018.
The contracts have been broken down into 15 distinct lots that apply to distinct trades and contracts will be awarded in the following areas:
- General building repairs
- Mechanical repairs
- Electrical repairs
- Asbestos remedial works and surveying and sampling for asbestos
- Drainage inspection and repairs,
- Fencing, screens, railings, gates, posts, and bollards
- Roofing repairs,
- glazing repairs
- Repairs to floor coverings
- Door repairs and maintenance (to include automatic doors)
- Electrical compliance
