The contracting authority considers that this contract may be suitable for economic operators that are small or medium enterprises (SMEs).

Accordingly this Contract Notice is a voluntary notice and reference to the restricted procedure at Section IV.1.1 does not apply. The procurement will run in accordance with Regulation 5(2) of the Public Contracts Regulations 2006 (‘the Regulations’) that sets out the specific Regulations that apply to contracts for Part B services. The Trust does not intend to the bound by any additional Regulations. Without prejudice to the foregoing, it is the Trusts intention to broadly follow the structure of the restricted procedure subject to any changes that it may notify to candidates. For the avoidance of doubt, whilst the Trust has included within the supplementary vocabulary, CPV codes which relate to supplies, the contracts to which this notice relates are services contracts and the Trust requires that the successful provider provides and manages the consumables required. Each Lot will be treated as a separate contract award procedure. The Trust will not be awarding a contract under both Lots and will make a decision, depending on its requirement, to award either Lot 1 or Lot 2. As a consequence the procurement process for the other Lot will be abandoned. The Trust reserves the right not to award any or part of a Lot, postpone or terminate the procurement process (or any part of it) or change the procedure used, at any time without liability on its part. The Trust does not bind itself to accept the lowest or any bid offered in relation to this process and that the Trust is not responsible for any costs or liabilities (including third party costs, fees or expenses) incurred by bidders expressing an interest in or bidding for this opportunity and no implied contract is created. Tenders and all supporting documents must be priced in sterling and written in English. Any agreements entered into will be governed by English law and subject to the exclusive jurisdiction of the English courts.
