two.1.3) Type of contract


two.1.4) Short description

Gold Hill Housing Association has appointed B2G to run frameworks that help contracting authorities across the UK to build and maintain property and, in so doing, deliver commercial and social value.

This framework is for use by UK contracting authorities to procure the new or continued services of system suppliers to supply and install PVC-U, Aluminium and Timber-frame window and doorsets, and all associated works, supplies and services, for both residential and non-residential property. System suppliers should be proven specialists in at least one material.

In managing the replacement programmes it is expected that GRP/steel/communal entrance doorsets may also be supplied or installed as part of the associated works, supplies and services, but specialist suppliers of these doorsets are best suited to be sub-contracted by the suppliers appointed to this framework to deliver those aspects of a contract.

(For the avoidance of doubt, a framework exclusively for bespoke entrance doorset specialists is planned)

Following conversations with those who expressed interest in the PIN, the framework's remit has been extended.

Suppliers wishing to tender are requested to email tenders@b2g.services

two.2.7) Duration of the contract, framework agreement or dynamic purchasing system

Duration in months


This contract is subject to renewal


Description of renewals

The Framework Agreement will commence on the date of the initial Contract Award Notice and continue for an initial Term of 12 months and then automatically renew for subsequent periods of the same length as the initial Term on a continual basis until such time as B2G gives the other parties written notice of termination at least three months prior to expiration of that current Term, which B2G shall determine at its sole discretion.

two.2.10) Information about variants

Variants will be accepted: No

two.2.11) Information about options

Options: Yes

Description of options

1. Price Updates: Prior to each renewal date all appointed Suppliers will have the option to submit updated prices for some or all items. B2G will then calculate and issue the updated prices to apply to all Projects registered during the new Term, applying a Should Cost Modelling approach to calculate the new prices, and using a combination of all updated prices submitted to B2G by the appointed Suppliers and, for each appointed Supplier who fails to submit new prices to B2G, applying an uplift using a facility chosen by B2G from those listed in the Framework Terms.

2. Additional Suppliers: Being an open framework agreement, at any time after the date of the initial Contract Award Notice additional Suppliers may be appointed and become party to the Framework Agreement, subject to the additional Supplier having submitted a Bid that has been evaluated and awarded by B2G in accordance with the same evaluation criteria and terms set out in the Framework Documents, with their appointment taking effect from the date of publication by B2G of a modification notice on an official journal.

3. Active regions and contract values: Suppliers specify the sub-regions within the lot in which they are active, and their preferred contract value ceiling and floor (per annum). Whilst buyers retain the right to appoint any supplier for any contract, they may also opt to only invite suppliers whose regional and financial choices match the project. Suppliers may also decline invitations to deliver projects outside their active regions. In this way carbon footprint in minimised, procurement efficiency is optimised, and choice maximised.

Section four. Procedure

four.1) Description

four.1.1) Type of procedure

Open procedure

four.1.3) Information about a framework agreement or a dynamic purchasing system

The procurement involves the establishment of a framework agreement

Framework agreement with several operators

In the case of framework agreements, provide justification for any duration exceeding 4 years:

The Framework has an initial Term of twelve months and then automatically renews for subsequent periods of twelves months on a continual basis until such time as B2G gives the other parties written notice of termination .

The framework will not, of course, be renewed if it is not being actively used by contracting authorities to call off projects, or if there is drastic change in legislation.

However two particular attributes give B2G's 'dynamic open framework' format both longevity and currency:

Firstly, the ability to appoint additional suppliers (subject to meeting the same stringent standards) enable B2G frameworks to accommodate new and innovative suppliers, and withstand supply chain turbulence; and

Secondly, the ability to review and adjust prices annually in tandem with application of Should Cost Modelling ensure B2G framework prices remain both competitive and current, and withstand market turbulence.

Consequently this framework is likely to provide contracting authorities with a competitive and current procurement route well beyond 4 years.
