Contract award: Amenity Grass Cutting, Skye and Lochalsh, 2014-16.

The estimated volume of grass to be cut is 398 277 sq metres. This is a current best estimate and for guidance only in order to allow potential suppliers to gauge their interest in the Contract. Volumes shall continue to be refined throughout the tender process. The standards measured by the specification will be determined by the output or performance of the operation. The Council has opted to present the specification in the form of a performance or output contract in order to engage the Contractor~s professional judgement and expertise to utilise current products and techniques. For the avoidance of doubt, this means that the Contractor will assess the requirement and determine the frequency and varying interval of cuts that he is likely to need to maintain the grass within set parameters. The Contractor will then manage the varying inputs necessary at different parts of the season to achieve this including monitoring by inspection to ensure that the contract standards are being met by their staff. If these parameters are not achieved due to any failure of the Contractor then the cost of remedial works will be borne by the Contractor. The Contractor shall deploy sufficient and suitable resources in the way of competent staff, machinery and vehicles, to be in a position to fulfil the routine Contract requirements, make good any remedial work and withstand the vagaries of weather or breakdown concurrently.
