Scarborough UTC opens its doors to students in September 2016.
The UTC is a government funded school for 14- 18 year olds and has a specialism in Advanced Engineering which will be taught alongside GCSEs and A Levels.
The UTC is in the process of procuring the specialist equipment required to teach the learners. We want to give you the opportunity to tender for supplying and installing some or all of the equipment required.
The equipment required has been separated out in to a number of tenders based on the final location of the equipment and use within the UTC.
In line with Department of Education policy the tenders will be judged on value for money as defined below;
‘Achieving the best possible educational and wider societal outcomes through the economic, efficient and effective use of all the resources in the trust’s charge, the avoidance of waste and extravagance, and prudent and economical administration’
To meet this criteria, the panel evaluating the tenders will be looking at the following criteria;
- Purchase price
- Life expectancy
- Operating costs
- Length of warranty
- Installation service offered
- Initial & annual training offered for teaching staff
- Support service offered over the life span of the equipment
- Suitability to meet the requirement of the curriculum offer
- Compatibility with equipment used by local industry
- Compatibility with other equipment within the UTC
- Ease of use
- Health & safety & level of guarding
- Educational services and training packages provided with equipment for learners
- Operating system
- Inclusion of all items within the tender
The tenders will be judged by a panel comprising of the Principal and representatives from no less than three local engineering companies.
Potential members of the panel will complete a conflict of interest questionnaire prior to the evaluation and any members with a noted conflict will be excluded. The panel reserve the right to reject all tenders if it is felt they do not meet the needs of the UTC. All offers made are subject to DfE approval.
