The decision has been taken based on the supplier(s) achieving the highest overall score within a best value tender (combination of whole-life costs and quality) in line with the European Procurement Directives award procedure of Most Economically Advantageous Tender (MEAT).
A competitive process was undertaken from which 9 bids were received these were considered as part of the formal evaluation process. 1 bid (Bridgwater YMCA) were excluded from the mini competition Block 1 – Young people’s Supported Accommodation and were not evaluated further. This was due to failure in meeting the tender requirements of completing document ‘Appendix 5a – Pricing Schedule Block Contract 1 – Financial Breakdown’. This meant that the organisation did not submit a completed tender submission.
Completed by Service Budget Holder/Service Officer.
