Framework for the provision of vehicle telematics

A prior information notice has been issued on Sell2Wales.

The Category Forum Group (CFG) is in the final stages of preparing the tender documentation. Final draft documentation has been circulated by CFG sector leads to the wider Welsh public sector for comments prior to placing the OJEU contract notice in early March.

Vehicle hire II

Mini-competition exercises are being undertaken by our team on behalf of several customers. If any customer needs help to identify the most cost effective supply method (direct award or further competition), please contact us on the mailbox below.

Please note: It is advised that buyers regularly check documents published on Sell2Wales to ensure they are utilising the most up to date information when calling off the framework.

Tyres and associated service

Please note that addendums to the Framework Call-off Conditions have been agreed by the NPS in relation to Price Reviews, Termination of Call-off contracts and Definition of confidential information and confidentiality.

These documents have been uploaded onto Sell2Wales for information.

If customers require any further explanation in relation to these addendums please contact us on the Fleet mailbox below.

Liquid fuels

The Liquid Fuels framework will be extended for the final period of 12 months with price reviews being held in March 2018. Further engagement with customers will take place with regard to the re-tender for this provision following the price review.

Please note that there is a change of telephone contact number for Jeremy Holt at Rix Petroleum. The framework guidance has been updated and uploaded on Sell2Wales to reflect this change.

Driver licence checking

The options appraisal is being drafted following receipt of driver licence checking information from the Category Forum Group (CFG). A further CFG meeting will be arranged to approve the options appraisal very shortly. If you would like to join this CFG please let us know by emailing the Fleet mailbox.

Fleet pipeline

The 5 year pipeline has been shared with fleet managers via the All Wales Fleet and Transport Group. As requested by the group, we are establishing working groups to consider the following areas of work to drive best practice and economies of scale:

  • standardisation of vehicle specifications
  • whole life costing models

We would welcome nominations from customers for Category Forum Group members to help us to proceed with these areas. For further information or an informal discussion, please contact us on the Fleet mailbox below.
