Vehicle Support Capital Spares Supply Framework

The Vehicle Support Team (VST), herein referred to as the Authority, has a requirement to enable the procurement of a range of Capital Spares for the majority of the Vehicle Support (VS) fleet of vehicles - including wheeled and tracked platforms - through establishment of a multi-supplier Framework Agreement. There are approximately 9000 individual items that will be included within the scope of the Framework Agreement, defined by NATO Stock Numbers (NSN) and Manufacturer's Part Numbers (MPN) and supplemented with packaging codes. The Authority reserves the right to amend the list at its discretion, including as a result of obsolescence and/or Post Design Services (PDS). Those Potential Providers who are selected following the DPQQ exercise and subsequently Invited To Tender (ITT) will, as part of the ITT exercise, be provided with an indicative list of NSNs that may be procured during the life of the Framework Agreement; and will be required to confirm which of these NSNs they can supply including relevant evidence to support such statements. If successful in their bid, Tenderers will be responsible for: • Responding to Requests for Quotation (RFQs) raised by the Authority, depending on operational demand; • Sourcing and delivering items, conforming to their NATO specifications; • Ensuring compliance with safety and quality standards; • Managing traceability back to source at a unit level; • Reporting on obsolescence, if encountered, during the procurement process; • Transporting items safely and securely following HAZMAT and COSHH and other relevant guidelines; • Delivering to UK MOD secure facilities. The duration of the Framework Agreement is intended to be a maximum of seven (7) years from 1 May 2021 until 31 March 2028, with an estimated value between £120,000,000 and £400,000,000 GBP. However, due to the nature of how a Framework Agreement operates, there is no guaranteed order amount or quantity of work. Expressions of Interest to participate in this requirement are to be submitted on the Defence Contracts Online (DCO) portal by completing the DPQQ, reference 7T42D76JCP.
