Savings

The previous CCS tyre framework agreement (RM955) delivered savings of between 16% and 52% against recommended retail prices for commonly used passenger vehicle tyres.  

This agreement will deliver an additional average saving of 4% across all products available under lot 1. In order to ensure best prices are delivered during the lifetime of the framework agreement we will calculate savings by comparing framework prices to those prices paid for equivalent tyres by vehicle lease companies, this will enable the comparison of tyre prices on a like for like.

As lot 2 is a multi supplier lot, there are a number of additional ways that customers will be able to ensure that best prices are achieved:

  • by comparing the prices available across the framework suppliers to ensure that the best price can be identified before you direct award
  • by undertaking a further competition which will require suppliers to compete further on price
  • suppliers are required to hold the prices submitted at the bid stage for a minimum of 12 months
  • on-going supplier management will include annual price reviews during the life of the framework 
  • prices will be benchmarked against the market e.g. Blackcircles.com

Background

The new framework agreement was developed to continue to meet the need for tyres by public sector organisations at advantageous prices and to allow for savings to be achieved across both central government and the wider public sector.

The Home Office and National Association of Police Fleet Managers (NAPFM) were involved in the planning and development stages of the framework agreement. In addition, many other existing customers were consulted for their feedback on the current framework and expectations for the replacement framework agreement. These customers included NHS ambulance trusts, fire and rescue organisations and local authorities.

We published a prior information notice in the OJEU on 6 February 2016 and stated that the procurement would be competed and awarded as a framework agreement (ref. 2016/S 026-041554). A supplier industry day was held on 8 March 2016 and attended by many of the leading tyre suppliers. 

We subsequently published an advertisement in the OJEU on 27 July 2016, which signalled the commencement of the competition (ref. 2016/S 143­259139). The supplier selection and tender evaluation process involved participation from a number of public sector organisations with fleet-related responsibilities e.g. Home Office, police authorities and NHS ambulance trusts.
