TitlePlanned Works Framework
Contract Reference NumberH&C/2017/39
InformationUnitas Stoke-on-Trent Limited (Unitas) is a wholly owned subsidiary of Stoke-on-Trent City Council which was established in March 2017 to deliver repairs and maintenance services for the Council's housing stock and public buildings following the end of the current joint venture partnership with Kier Stoke Limited (Kier Stoke). The joint venture with Kier Stoke ends at midnight on 3 February 2018 at which point Unitas will commence delivering the services. A number of contractor frameworks are now being procured to support Unitas in the delivery of its repairs and maintenance obligations. This Framework, known as the Planned Works Framework, is being procured to deliver a number of planned works programmes including component replacements and elemental renewals. Whilst Unitas will have directly employed tradespeople, they will primarily be focussed on responsive repairs activity. About the Planned Works Framework: There are 11 lots and contractors can apply for one or multiple lots. Up to five contractors will be appointed to each lot and works will be awarded following mini competition. Valid for four years, it is anticipated that the framework will commence 2 October 2017, as Unitas has responsibility for some repairs and maintenance works which fall outside of the Kier Stoke Joint Venture. Social value in procurement This is a procurement to which the Public Services (Social Value) Act 2012 applies. As such Stoke-on-Trent City Council has duly considered how the proposed procurement might improve the economic, social and environmental well-being within the contract area and how in conducting this procurement, this improvement can be secured. Social value is pivotal to the Council and part of its strategic vision and objectives. Therefore the evaluation criteria includes elements relating to economic and social factors and, given its importance, will constitute 30% of the tender assessment. These factors include contractors' ability to support the local economy through providing supply chain opportunities and to provide employment and training opportunities in the area covered by the contract. Social value - its relevance: Stoke-on-Trent City Council has developed a Strategic Plan 2016-20 which provides a clear vision for Stoke-on-Trent to create a city to be proud of. This vision is underpinned by five priorities which guides the Council in everything it does. The Planned Works Framework not only has the opportunity to deliver great places to live, but has the opportunity to help businesses thrive through the creation of local supply chains, as well as helping residents to fulfil their potential through local employment and training initiatives. Furthermore the opportunity to create social value as a result of this procurement also helps the City to address some of its local socio-economic challenges. For example Stoke-on-Trent has a higher percentage of households that are workless (18%), compared with the national average (15%), and 15% of people aged 16-64 in Stoke-on-Trent have no qualifications compared with 8% nationally (ONS).
