This document provides high level information regarding the potential procurement of a framework contract, including 2 suppliers, for the provision of Boiler and Gas Central Heating works within the Reading Borough Council.

This is an initial early market engagement exercise by way of a Prior Information Notice (PIN) expected to result in interested parties submitting a priced schedule on the basis of the attached documents.

However there is no commitment from the Council to any further stages of the procurement process until the Council is able to determine a single fixed pricing schedule which is capable of delivering value both to the Council and the potential suppliers that the Council hopes to appoint on the basis of the price schedule while also delivering the goals of the works defined in the tender documents.
