Contract & Framework Calendar

 

Cardiff Council has developed a Contract and Framework Calendar (61kb PDF)​​​​​​​​​​​​Link opens in a new window  which provides a list of all the Council's current contracts and frameworks, including framework arrangements established by the

National Procurement Service (NPS)​​​​​​​​​​Link opens in a new window ​.

 

This list of contracts is aimed to provide current and prospective suppliers and contractors with an idea of the variety of goods, services and works that the council buys.

 

The information against each contract includes:

 

  • Contract Categories - When suppliers register on Proactis they can select categories relevant to the goods/services/works they supply in order to receive notifications of opportunities that arise.
  • WPC Lead - the name of the authority who is lead for a particular WPC framework agreement on behalf of other authorities across Wales.
  • Expiration Date - the date the contract or framework comes to end.
  • Extension - illustrates whether there is an opportunity to extend the current contract or framework. This will reflect what was written in to the terms upon contract creation. 
  • Contract Manager - the person who is responsible for managing the contract or framework throughout its duration. If you would like to discuss the contract or raise any queries then you may use the email address provided.
  • Vendors - a list of the successful vendor(s) for each contract or framework. The council encourages suppliers, in particular Small Medium or Micro Enterprises and Third Sector organisations to contact successful vendors in order to find out about potential subcontracting / second or third tier opportunities that they may have.

 

 

This list is to demonstrate the council's current contracts and frameworks. This does not provide a like-for-like guarantee that the same goods, services or works will be tendered again upon contract expiry.

 

If similar contracts are to be tendered in future the opportunities are likely to be advertised between 12 and 6 months prior to the expiry date.

 

We advise prospective suppliers to contact the council up to 6 months in advance of the contract end date if they are interested in finding out about similar opportunities that may be available in future. This calendar aims to help suppliers plan ahead so they do not miss out on new opportunities.
