Apple Tender Update

HEPCW, in conjunction with Cardiff University, the Universities Apple Computer Group (UACG) and stakeholders, is retendering the Apple Equipment Framework Agreement. The received bids were evaluated and on 29 February 2016, and the tender working party met and agreed an award recommendation.


On 4th March 2016, all bidders were informed of the award decision and we are currently in a 10 day "standstill" period during which time bidders may challenge the decision (this is a legal requirement under the EU procurement process). The standstill period concludes at noon on Tuesday 15 March 2016.


The planned start date for the new Agreement is 1 April 2016. Full details of the new arrangement will be available via UniBuy along with a Buyers Guide and Suppliers' contact details etc.

Further updates will be issued in due course. The current framework agreement terms expire on 31 March 2016.
