Summary of Contract
Mosscare were in the process of forming a Direct Labour Organisation (DLO) to carry out the response and void maintenance work to their housing stock. By analysing historic response and void work requirement patterns it became clear that the ‘peak-trough’ predicted nature of the work requirement would mean the DLO, in order to remain viable and efficient, would need support in periods of peak work requirement.
We worked with Dave Bevan and Mark Jones to formulate a suitable contract, tender documents and tender evaluation process in order that the most appropriate contractor could be selected.
We evaluated the submissions and chaired an interview panel comprising of Mosscare representatives and tenant representatives to direct questions to the bidders.
Once we were in a position to collate the results from all of the aspects of the evaluation process we submitted a final report containing recommendations for contractor selection.
Mosscare are now in a position to have greater control and efficiency in their maintenance activities through their DLO knowing they have the best support possible to fulfil all obligations.
