NWUPC have reviewed the tender timelines for our forthcoming agreements in accordance with Regulation 72(1) of PCR 2015, to ensure that they are realistic and achievable for all parties involved. Each contract has been assessed on an individual basis in accordance with the process established by the UKUPC Joint Contracting Group with consideration given to the availability of staff at the regional consortia and within institutions to manage the tender process; as well as the ability of suppliers to submit bids when operating with a reduced workforce.

NWUPC have taken the decision, in conjunction with the participating consortia, to extend the current Washroom Services and Associated Products and Services agreement until 30th April 2021.

Incumbent suppliers have been notified and relevant systems will be updated when signed extension letters have been received from all suppliers. The above stated modifications to the contracts will be published by way of an OJEU notice.

Work remains ongoing on the retender and an updated provisional timeline for the tender is included below:
