Tender on offer for supply of spring, summer flowering bulbs
Dublin City Council to establish a four-year, multi-party framework agreement, for the supply, delivery and unloading of spring and summer flowering bulbs
3 November 2022
At Growtrade, we highlight public procurement opportunities from around Ireland that would be suitable to landscapers, growers, turfgrass professionals, horticulturalists, and forestry professionals.
Here is one such tender from Dublin City Council to establish a four-year, multi-party framework agreement, for the supply, delivery and unloading of spring and summer flowering bulbs.
The initial contract covers the requirements to be delivered in 2023. A minimum of four and a maximum of six operators will be admitted to the framework provided that at least four tenderers qualify in accordance with the selection and award criteria. Where it is not possible to include four tenderers, a lesser number may be admitted to the framework. Requirements under the framework will be met though mini competitions where each member of the framework will be issued a supplementary invitation to tender dealing with the scope of the requirements While DCC reserves the right to utilise the framework to meet its requirements as they arise, the bulk of requirements under the framework will be a single annual request that will cover both the spring and summer requirements for the calendar year.
All framework members will be invited to meet DCC’s requirements. It is emphasised, Dublin City Council makes no guarantee of the volume of work to be sourced under the framework agreement. Indeed, Dublin City Council reserves the right to operate outside of the framework agreement at its discretion; particularly should it become apparent that doing so would offer greater value for money. The successful supplier will be responsible for the off-loading of the items at the receiving area as directed by Dublin City Council Parks Staff. Price tendered must include any costs in relation to this.
Please note there will be at least five separate locations within the City boundary that the bulbs will have to be delivered to and off loaded.
