Brief Description of Requirement

Scope of Service for the Special Mechanical Services Contract - LMB & ARES

The Special Mechanical Services Bundle maintenance service shall ensure that all maintainable assets, including software, non-fixed plant and equipment within the various premises (identified from the asset list [see section 3 below] and supplemented where necessary by an initial site survey), are maintained to the required 'fit for function' performance level, meeting the manufacturer's and installer's recommendations (whilst taking account of any supplementary servicing needs that arise from the as-built environment) and to ensure strict compliance with all statutory/legal and mandatory obligations. Business continuity is imperative as numerous key scientific areas require 24/7 response within 4 hours to FM problems as failures of scientific experiments can put weeks / months of research in jeopardy.

Please ensure you review all attached information to ensure a full understanding of this requirement. All attachments can be found with the RFx attachments tab within the Emptoris System.

This contract will be awarded based on the evaluation criteria set out in the RFP document.
