To seek approval to use the ESPO Framework 115
to procure the contract for the refurbishment of the play area at
Muirfield Road Recreation Ground, Arnold, Nottingham.
To give approval for the use of the ESPO
Framework 115 to procure a supplier to deliver the refurbishment of
the play area at Muirfield Recreation Ground.
To procure a supplier using the ESPO Framework 115. This Framework offers a competitive route to purchase the design, supply, delivery and installation of outdoor playground equipment and safety surfacing for public play areas. The suppliers on the framework have been selected for their experience and ability to provide a comprehensive range of products that combine quality and value for money. The Framework is available for use by public sector bodies including Local Authorities and is EU/UK compliant. The suppliers have been assessed for their financial stability, track record and experience and technical and professional ability. The framework also has pre agreed terms and conditions that are compliant with Gedling Borough Council’s contracts terms.
The existing play area at Muirfield Road
Recreation Ground has seen little improvements over the past 11
years and has been highlighted within the Green Space Strategy as
in ‘poor’ condition. The Parks department have worked
in partnership with Warren Action Group and identified a
refurbishment criteria following extensive consultation with local
schools, groups and residents in the area. The Parks department and
Warren Action Group applied to WREN (Waste Recycling Environmental)
for funding to refurbish the park and WREN have awarded a total of
£100,000 to complete the project. This forms phase three of
Warren Action Group’s overall project plans for the park, the
first phase involved installation of a MUGA (also funded by WREN)
and phase two, the installation of an outdoor gym.
Not to use the framework and procure the
supplier through the open tender process which would attract
suppliers that are not specific to the tender requirements and may
not be experienced in the design and installation of play area
equipment. This could cause delays to the process and result in an
unnecessary additional financial burden in Officer time.
