AWARD OF CONTRACT FOR THE SUPPLY AND INSTALLATION OF COMMERCIAL CATERING EQUIPMENT pdf icon PDF 94 KB

    Surrey County Council have a current contract in place with Commercial Services for the supply and installation of commercial catering equipment used in the provision of meals to Surrey schools.

    Catering equipment covers items such as prime cooking equipment, warewashing machines, refrigeration equipment, heated and ambient display equipment, and large food prep equipment.

    The current contract expires on the 1 April 2019 and there are no further extensions that can be used.

    The contract supports the Council’s Commercial Services contractual obligations to provide school meals across Surrey. It helps the schools to comply with their legal duty, including the Children’s and Families Act 2014, for all state-funded schools, including academies and free schools, to offer a free school lunch to all pupils in Reception, Year 1 and Year 2.

    This report sets out recommendations arising from work on options for the provision of the supply and installation of commercial catering equipment to commence the service from 2 April 2019 for use in the production of school meals, and outlines a competitive tender which was carried out in order to select suppliers to deliver the service. 

    The procurement process is at the stage where Cabinet approval is required in order to award the contract to a number of suppliers across seven sub-lots as listed below.

    Because of the commercial sensitivity the details of assessment results have been circulated as a confidential Part 2 of this report.
