Access

Due to the complexity of vehicle conversions and their bespoke specifications, there is no standard pricing available. All requirements must be further competed amongst suppliers on the relevant lot who can meet your specification.

You are advised to review the customer guidance document and terms & conditions to determine which specific lot/s best meet your requirement. The evaluation criteria/weightings for further competitions are detailed within the guidance document.

Further competitions can be undertaken via our eSourcing tool or via another suitable system for electronic or non-electronic procurement further competitions of your choice.

Further information can be found within Schedule 4 - order form & call-off termsSchedule 5 - ordering procedure and  Schedule 6 - award criteria.

Copies of all these documents can be downloaded from the documents tab.

Upon award an enabling agreement (which can be found in Schedule 4) must be completed. A copy should be held by you and the successful supplier(s).

Background

We previously offered three vehicle conversion legacy frameworks inherited from NHS PASA. These all expired during 2012/2013:

  • Accident and Emergency Ambulances (Health only)
  • Mammography Trailers  & Mobile Units (Pan Government)
  • Cars & Van (Health Only)

Following consultation with key stakeholders it was evident that the next-generation vehicle conversion framework needed to increase in scope to enable as many requirements as possible to be captured.
