The proposed Framework will be in place for a maximum period of 4 years, however contracts called-off under the Framework may, where appropriate, continue beyond the 4 year term of the Framework.
Economic operators should note that, under the Framework, Hyde shall not be under any obligation to call-off contracts.
Economic operators are advised that the terms of the Transfer of Undertakings (Protection of Employment) Regulations 2006 (TUPE) may apply to the existing workforce employed by the incumbent contractors in relation to the works to be performed by the successful economic operators under any contracts called-off under the Framework. Further available information on TUPE, will be provided at the tender stage of the procurement process.
The successful economic operators appointed to the Framework will be required to provide a customer focused service and show commitment to providing value for money to Hyde and its residents/leaseholders and must be responsive to achieve collaborative working practices, innovation and continuous improvement.
The Framework and any contracts called-off under the Framework will contain provisions covering regular monthly, quarterly and annual performance meetings reviews; early termination and also meeting, maintaining and improving on Key Performance Indicators and the development of year on year efficiency savings.
Economic operators should note that the estimated total value of purchases for the entire duration of the Framework given under section II.1.4 has been calculated by reference to the total estimated value of the call-off contracts to be awarded under the Framework.
