yes this is because they have taken away our right to tender. We agreed to reduce the term of the extention due to the merg that was ongoing that never went ahead and really shoot ourselves in the foot. Going in to the framework will not be value for money as the companies on the frame work are huge not like us small and local and we demonstate local and social connection to all sites. Even if they would give us time to get on to the framework in Dec 2014 in stead of awarding the contract through the framework to start August 2014. It is un just and unfair and will result in the company cease to trade for no good reason. We were also told that the board were not made aware of any background of the currant contractor. Surley theres an eu issue here of being treated grossly unfair
yes this is a housing services contract (national) covering cleaning and bulk waste cleaning of communial areas the contract was advertised on the E U journel as a 5 year plus two ( even though we were tricked in to the reduction and was offered on an open book policey with a possible partnership that we have never been told was changed. Their action is not justifiable at this stage and they have said their decision is not because we have not carried out our work correctly It makes no sence
The board also were not given all the background facts that has also been confirmed. If they do this we are finished and over 60 jobs will go that's not what a housing association should be doing
ok Yes I have exhausted the system and asked them to review their decision.
If they want to go down the framework route then they must let us take part we are the contractor in place. The framework contract goes out to tender Dec 2014 through Ojiu. They are tendering our contract now to start August 2014. This means that the contract in place on the framework now will cease in March 2015 and association are paying extra to get an enhanced membership with the procurement for housing group which is reduculous as the association have their own procurement dept and it will cost a fortune. It is also very clear that the companies on the framework will never get near our price structure,as we are small and local. What I need is something from Europian law that says just taking away our right to requote for our contract that we won through Ojui a europian procedure is wrong then they cant do it? If they do we will cease to trade.
the awarding party is a housing association in the UK. They have taken away our right to retender for our work and by doing so we have not future as we will not have the turnover to tender for similar work. And the route they are taking will cost much more than is they procured it themselves and was not going in to a frame work where the companies on the contract framework are massive and expensicve
