Sport and Active Anglia are responsible for most elements of student sport within our university including competitive sports clubs, social sport and management of sports facilities. We are responsible for the overall delivery of our university's sport strategy.
Sport and Active Anglia have a broad range of bespoke sports clothing requirements across a number of programmes. The contractor will need to be able to provide a range of options so that we can build in variation depending on each need whilst still retaining the overall sense that all items belong to the same team.
Sports clothing needs to be fit for purpose to give our staff and students maximum opportunity to be successful. We see sports clothing as an important tool for creating a sense of pride and belonging in our university community - both for the wearer and those who see others wearing it on and off campus.
Most kit will be ordered directly by the Sport and Active Anglia team and then distributed to staff and students as necessary. In addition to this, the contractor must provide an online shop facility for students, staff and others to be able to buy additional items of kit on an individual basis which can be personalised within some clearly defined parameters given by the Sport and Active Anglia team. This online shop should operate independent of our university staff but the contractor must make necessary assurances that student payments will be secure and details of all purchases must be made available to university staff on a regular basis.
Of the kit that will be ordered directly by the Sport and Active Anglia team, the main items include:
- Approximately 50 sports team kits for various sports and in various sizes using appropriate performance fabrics for that activity. These will be purchased at the start of the contract.
- Individual replacement items for sports kits in various sports and sizes on an annual basis (for example, year two might include 6 football shirts, 3 netball dresses, 8 pairs of rugby shorts and 1 basketball vest).
- An order of approximately 1 250 hoodies per annum (from year two onwards) in various sizes.
- Items of staff uniform for approximately 40 staff - this will normally be replaced every two years but individual items should be available to purchase at any time.
- Various polo shirts and training tops for other programmes such as Sports Scholars, Sports Activators and students on our Sports Science and Sports Coaching degrees. In total these are likely to include about 250 items per year.
Suppliers will have to be able to meet strict manufacturing and delivery timescales with all of the Team Sport Kits being required by the 1.9.2017. Timescales for other items are listed within the tender documents.
Samples of the proposed selected sports kit will be required as part of the tender, with samples of the remainder kits being provided by the successful tenderer upon contract award. Samples from the successful tenderer will be retained by the University for the duration of the contract.
