Scope

This will initially be a pilot programme in the South West of England, this pilot area will have two regions out of the 17 regions identified.

The aim is the appointment of potentially 17 logistic suppliers – 1 supplier per identified region. This procurement activity will be via an OJEU for a single framework, lotted into 17 regions. 

This links with 2 two other procurements 

This online portal will be the only point of contact for buyers and the logistics suppliers will the initial produce from Suppliers, transport it to a consolidation hub, ensure the order is completely fulfilled and then deliver to the customer. The Technology and Management Agent (RM6227) will coordinate the whole of the order from food selection to delivery.

All suppliers to be appointed in a phased approach, with the pilot area suppliers activated first, following this, each region will be brought online when the agreement is activated nationally.
