Description

arc21 is establishing a Dynamic Purchasing System (DPS), divided into four Lots, for the provision of services relating to the treatment and energy recovery or disposal of Member Councils’ residual waste arisings. Lot 1 predominantly incorporates residual kerbside collections and residual waste from commercial/trade collections, which may be mixed with other residual waste streams. Lot 2 predominantly incorporates residual waste from Household Waste Recycling Centres which may be mixed with other residual waste streams. Lot 3 predominantly incorporates combined residual kerbside waste from commercial/trade collections and Household Waste Recycling Centre waste which may be mixed with other residual waste streams. Lot 4 predominantly incorporates other residual waste streams such as street litter, bulky waste and fly tipped waste and which may include waste arising from bonfires that has not or cannot be combined in any of the Lots. Within each of the Lots there may also be a requirement for the Contractor(s) to provide a delivery point(s) within a specified range; the loading of waste and/or an element of waste transport. The DPS is a two-stage process. There is no intention to limit the minimum and maximum number of service providers. In the initial setup stage, all service providers that meet the selection criteria and are not excluded must be admitted to the DPS. The DPS will be open to entrants, throughout its life, who meet the minimum criteria. Further information on the selection process can be found within the procurement documents. In addition to the specific Participating Bodies detailed in the notice call-off competitions may include waste from NI Councils who are not constituent councils of arc21.

In addition to the specific Participating Bodies detailed in the notice Call-Off Competitions may include waste from NI Councils who are not constituent councils of arc21. The Call-Off Competitions may involve other Councils from NI who are not constituent councils of arc21. The value included in section II.2.6 is the estimated value of all contracts currently envisaged to be awarded under the DPS if it is extended for its full duration (and if the contract extensions are fully utilised). Due to the nature of the Lots it is not possible at this stage to accurately predict which Lot the councils will allocate their waste to and therefore it is not possible to estimate the value of each Lot individually over the life of the DPS. The time for initial applications to join the DPS will commence in August 2022. New suppliers will be able to join during the life of the DPS. An initial phase of competition(s) is envisaged to take place in September/October 2022 with a view to the services, arising from the award of those Contracts, commencing at the beginning of 2023. Only those suppliers who have been admitted onto the DPS, at the time of the issue of a CfT for a specific procurement under a Lot, will be invited to tender in respect of that specific procurement. A previous publication concerning this procedure was issued on etenders NI on 4th June 2021.

Additional information: The duration of individual contracts awarded under the DPS may vary, with the initial contracts (anticipated to be awarded in 2022) currently envisaged to be for a duration of at least 3 years with arc21 having the option of extending for a further period(s) of up to 48 months. The value included in section II.1.5 is the estimated value of all contracts currently envisaged to be awarded under the DPS if it is extended for its full duration (and if the contract extensions are fully utilised).

Complete Tender Coverage

Following Brexit, the new official Find a Tender system has been developed by UK Government to detail all public procurement contract opportunities expected to be over £122, 976 for Central Government or £189,330 for the remainder of the public sector e.g. NHS contracts, Local Authority contracts, Housing Association contracts. Publishing requirements for all of the public sector are in place to ensure transparency, fairness and open competition.

All UK public sector opportunities under these values, but over £10,000 for central government or over £25,000 for other public sector organisations, are still required to be published on Contracts Finder. Scotland, Wales and NI also have their own dedicated sites: Public Contracts Scotland, Sell2Wales, eSourcing NI and eTendersNI.

Complete Tenders have centralised and consolidated all of this information into a single, easy to use platform that is updated hourly with all new opportunities.
