London and Quadrant Housing Trust and its subsidiary Quadrant Construction Services are one of the largest providers of affordable housing in the UK, housing over 250,000 people in more than 95,000 homes, primarily across London and the South East of England. London and Quadrant Housing Trust are tendering for the provision of services for External Wall review - Fire Inspections & Remedials for London and Quadrant's Self Delivered New Build Projects to comply with the Public Contracts regulations 2015. The objective of this tender process is to establish a Dynamic Purchasing System with the tenderers and London and Quadrant Housing Trust. The dates and contract value are estimates and could be subject to change. This tender is for Service Providers and Consultants only.

This tender process is being carried out in accordance with the provisions of Regulation 34 of the Public Contracts Regulations (PCR) 2015 relating to the procurement of a Dynamic Purchasing System (DPS) for the purchase of Goods and Services.

The DPS is open to Admitted Suppliers throughout the period of validity.
'Admitted Supplier' means a supplier who has met the DPS admission criteria set out in the Standard Selection Questionnaire (SSQ) and has been registered on the DPS for one or more product categories. Suppliers and products may be submitted for evaluation and potentially, admission to the DPS at any time throughout the period of validity.

Suppliers who have been unsuccessful in meeting the criteria to become an 'Admitted Supplier' may re-submit another, revised SSQ at any time beyond the initial mini competition.

Potential reasons for being removed from DPS list:
- KPI's (performance on projects). Providers who receive poor KPI scores could be removed from the DPS
- Uncompetitive tenders on a regular basis
- Poor response or no responses to tender enquires
- Financial data changes (assessed at least yearly) - assessed against original SSQ submission. Could either lead to complete removal or dropping out of some lots but not others. Could also lead to others growing to a state where qualify for higher lots.
- If credit limit falls below 41, you will be suspended
- If credit score falls to 30 (high risk) or less you will be removed from the DPS
