Wealden District Council is seeking expressions of interest from suitably skilled and experienced Service Providers for the delivery of a range of asset management works under 4 contracts: Lot 1 – responsive repairs, void and capital works; Lot 2 – electrical works; Lot 3 – domestic heating works; Lot 4 – commercial heating and mechanical works.
The TPC 2005 (as amended) contract will run for a maximum term of 15 years. An overarching Strategic Alliance Agreement, to which the other three Service Providers and Wealden DC will be party, will set out requirements in respect of areas for which the Service Providers will be jointly responsible, including ICT, contact centre/call handling arrangements, the delivery of social value and supply chain arrangements.
Wealden DC is following a three-stage Competitive Dialogue procedure in accordance with the Public Contracts Regulations 2015.

Under the first stage of the process, prospective Service Providers are required to complete a Selection Questionnaire and its related appendices. Following evaluation of submitted SQs, Wealden DC anticipates shortlisting 3 bidders per Lot to be Invited to Submit Detailed Solutions under the second stage of the process. Bidders are permitted to bid for one Lot only.
