II.1.4)Short description of the contract or purchase(s)
Repair and maintenance services. Television aerial installation work. Satellite dishes. Repair and maintenance services of electrical building installations. Aerial signal splitters. Erection of aerials. Radio aerial installation work. The contract comprises the maintenance repair and upgrading of domestic communal television and integrated reception system installations to over 40 000 homes. There are up to 3 000 communal TV systems from small systems serving four houses in a single block through individual tenement systems, street network systems, multi-storey and deck access block systems at various locations throughout the city of Glasgow, UK. The number of sites may vary up or down during the term of the contract due to acquisitions, demolitions and/or disposals. The installations provide GHA customers with a communal TV or integrated reception system [IRS] for TV reception via Freeview and/or Freesat. Typically the installations comprise an aerial or satellite dishes, amplifier and a signal distribution network. GHA customers have a reasonable expectation that the service will continue uninterrupted, or if a breakdown occurs, that the service will be resumed as quickly as possible. The primary objective of the contract therefore is to provide a reactive repair service which, in the event of breakdown, restores service quickly and efficiently. Although the principle scope of the contract is to provide this breakdown service, the intention is that the contract will facilitate complete replacement of obsolete components or systems, system upgrades to introduce new technology, or new installations. Whenever properties served by a communal TV or IRS systems are demolished, alterations to the installations are needed to adapt them so that they continue to serve the properties that are not demolished. This alteration work is also within the scope of the project. It is anticipated that expenditure on the contract will be approximately 240 000 GBP in year one reducing to 200 000 GBP annually over 5 years. Expenditure on new installations and upgrading, extending or adapting existing installations is difficult to pre-estimate but for the purpose of representing the contract value in the contract notice, an average annual value of 30 000 GBP has been assumed. The terms of the proposed contract provide that there will be no guarantee of the volume of orders to be instructed. The contract will not provide the successful economic operator with exclusive rights to work of this nature which may be within the scope of other GHA contracts. This award procedure relates to the re-procurement of IRS maintenance services which are currently delivered under an existing long term contract.
