II.2.4) Description of the procurement

Sir Robert Pattinson Academy is an 11 – 18 comprehensive school where students are valued, happy, challenged and strive to achieve their best. The Academy provides rich learning experiences both in and outside of the classroom resulting in a great education.

Our school is very special for many reasons. We have fantastic staff, who inspire and support students to succeed, and our ethos provides a calm and caring learning environment which you can feel as you walk around the Academy. We place strong emphasis on community values and believe every student is an individual. We believe it is crucial to celebrate everyone’s successes and varied talents. The Academy pupil roll is expected to increase during the term of this contract.

This is the first time that the Academy has put their cleaning requirement to competitive tender. The contract will commence on 1 April 2023 for an initial period of three years, ending on 31 March 2026, with the opportunity to extend for a further period of two years at the discretion of the governing body.

This contract will be fixed price in nature with the successful Supplier guaranteeing both the number of input hours to the contract and the quality of cleaning provision.

We are seeking a suitably experienced Supplier who has current experience of working within the secondary school market place, ideally with a strong operational base within the Lincoln area, thus allowing for both adequate contract support and operational flexibility that is to be delivered to support the contract as and when required moving forwards into this contract term.

The scope of the contract covers all cleaning provision within the school buildings. The successful Supplier will be expected to deliver a concise and detailed method of management reporting at the end of each month, thus updating the school senior management team on the contract performance.

Any variations to the contract that are requested by the Client should be invoiced at the agreed rate and should be calculated on an hourly rate per employee needed to carry out the variation to the satisfaction of the contract supervising officer. The Client’s requirement shall be for 190 academic days, 0 inset days and 20 days periodic cleaning per annum. The Academy has a number of daytime staff who undertake reactive cleaning, lunch supervision and litter picking duties and they shall be used to undertake cleaning on inset days.

Whilst the monthly charge will represent one-twelfth of the contract cost, a reconciliation will take place monthly to reconcile the actual hours worked within the contract. If the hours worked are less than those budgeted for a credit will be required by the Client. The Client requires that the tendered amount of hours are worked at all times and the successful Supplier is expected to have a system in place to cover for both planned and unplanned leave.

The Supplier shall provide a comprehensive cleaning service to the Client so as to promote a clean, healthy and safe environment which presents a positive image to all users and visitors.
