Supply and Delivery of Seed

Please find enclosed information regarding an invitation to tender for the supply and delivery of seed framework. This new framework agreement will run from September 2020 to September 2024 and will cover all aspects of seed supply to Moors for the Future Partnership. This Tender will form the basis of a Framework Agreement in which the Authority can issue contracts to call off seed from a preferred supplier, or from other suppliers should the preferred supplier not be able to fulfil a contract. The preferred supplier may be a single contractor, or a lead contractor with aspects of supply sub-contracted. The seed to which this Tender relates comprises a mix of turf grasses, plus Deschampsia flexuosa, Calluna vulgaris and Erica tetralix. The seed will be used as part of peatland conservation works in the South and West Pennines. In previous years, the Authority has required between 10 and 20 tonnes of seed each year, of which approximately 2% comprised Deschampsia flexuosa and <1% Calluna and Erica, with the rest made up of turf grasses. Estimated seed requirements for year 1 of the Framework Period will be supplied with the award of the tender.
