The scope and purpose of the procurement
The aim of the procurement is to enter into a framework agreement with a tenderer for contractor services for Nordkraft Nett AS.
The framework agreement is meant to cover the contracting authority's need for contractor services in the entire contract period. The contracting authority reserves the right, however, to have major procurements as separate procurements, likewise projects that come outside the extent of the contract.
The contractor services mainly consist of electro work on high and low voltage, but also simple mechanical work, joinery work and engineering services.
The contracting authority has entered into procurement contracts that shall be used if the procurements cannot be obtained cheaper or if the contracting authority is obliged to procure through a specific supplier.
The framework agreement period will be 3.4.2017 — 3.4.2019, with an option for one year (2020), as well as a further option for 1 year (2021), with both parties having the option to end the contract with three months notice.
