Type: New Contract Reference: 2019/S 043-097820 Supply Route: Stocked, Blue Diamond, eDirect
Start Date: 4 March 2019 Expiry Date: 3 March 2020

This framework starts on 4 March 2019, runs for 12 months and ends on 3 March 2020. There is an option to extend for an additional 36 months.

Areas Covered

There are two lots on this framework:

  • Lot 1 – Medical Pulp and Support Products
  • Lot 2 – Macerators.
  • 32 NPCs have no alternatives but there have been no sales on 21 of these products in the last 12 months and low sales on 11 products
  • Nine NPCs have indirect alternatives
  • As the delisted products are predominately Macerators, a capital purchase, customers would need to engage with the supplier with respect to requirements prior to purchase, therefore any training on new macerators would be considered at that stage.

The new framework will include seven suppliers. See table below for details of the awarded suppliers.
