2021 FRAMEWORKS AND SERVICES


FURTHER COMPETITION BENEFITS OF CHOOSING A FURTHER COMPETITION Our frameworks offer customers the opportunity to run a Further Competition among the suppliers listed on the framework. Why choose to run a Further Competition? Drives competition and better value, particularly for high-value or complex goods and services Tests the market to find the right solution at the best price Helps you – the customer – understand the alternatives available Gives a thorough, fair and open route to find the best price Creates a compliant audit trail Re-opening competition with all the capable Suppliers awarded on the Framework Agreement to determine the most appropriate Supplier for a defined period of time or project. The Customer may choose to implement, amend or provide alternative Terms and Conditions. Any such amendments or alternative terms and conditions will be contained within the Further Competition documents and /or the Order/ Individual Contract. In order to adhere to ‘The Public Contracts Regulations 2015’ when re-opening competition under this Framework Agreement the Participating Authority should follow the steps below: 1 The Participating Authority/Customer must invite all Suppliers on the Framework Agreement who are deemed capable of delivering the particular requirement. 2 The Participating Authority/Customer shall be responsible for formulating a specification/ product brief containing full details of the work/products required. 3 The Participating Authority/Customer will send the specification/product brief to all Suppliers quoting the Framework Agreement reference number. A reasonable and proportionate time limit should be set for the submission of fully completed Tender responses. 4 Responses received must be kept in a secure place, unopened, until the designated closing date and time for final submissions has passed. Responses received after the specified date and time should be rejected unopened. 5 The submitted response shall be evaluated in accordance with the criteria stated in the original specification/product brief. The headline criteria used must be the same as the headline criteria used for the original Framework Agreement or part thereof, but the Participating Authority/Customer may change the weightings and add their own sub-criteria to apply. 6 The Tenderers must be advised of the result in writing including brief details on where they scored points and where they did not. 7 A required ‘standstill period’ does not apply to Further Competitions held under a Framework Agreement. However, it is advisable to hold a standstill period in relation to a Further Competition as it is possible a Supplier may challenge the decision and apply to court for a ‘declaration of ineffectiveness’ which could lead to the Individual Contract being terminated and possibly a fine or compensation claim. 8 There is no scope at the Further Competition stage to select on the basis of general financial and economic standing or technical ability, as these issues have been addressed as part of process to establish the Framework Agreement. However, this does not mean financial due diligence should not be undertaken if considered appropriate (e.g. obtaining a report on a Suppliers financial standing from an appropriate agency) as long as this does not form part of any selection process.

Increasingly, children are living in a world where technology is all around them. Sharp’s Interactive Touchscreen Table - Early Years Edition provides an intuitive platform for our young ‘digital natives’ not only to develop their digital skills, but to grow as well-rounded individuals, by enabling them to: •

Explore a wide range of media and materials

Develop gross and fine motor skills

Practise phonics, handwriting, literacy and numeracy

Learn, play and collaborate with others

Share thoughts and feelings through activities

A fully mobile and secure system, the Early Years Table contributes to an innovative and engaging learning environment, safely introducing technology to children while supporting their cognitive, social and emotional development.


Maximising classroom engagement with BIG PAD

The challenge of keeping pupils engaged in lessons is a very real one, and absolutely essential to their learning. Technology such as interactive whiteboards can help to provide stimulating and meaningful learning experiences, enabling teachers to deliver dynamic, multifaceted lessons, all visible from a safe distance. Sharp’s intuitive BIG PADs can enhance learning in many ways. Teachers and pupils can write, draw or annotate documents with responsive on-screen handwriting, increasing understanding of lesson material and encouraging participation. There’ll be lots more hands up in your classroom with Hive software, allowing students to easily get involved in charting data, measuring angles, filling in answers and more, adding their answers on screen, or even connecting using their own devices.

Enrich your learning environment with connected technologies

We believe that technology plays a key role in schools by enhancing, not replacing, human interaction and supporting teachers in delivering outstanding lessons. Secure and intuitive technologies can work together to reduce the heavy workloads of teachers and increase efficiencies through automation and integration of systems, making printing and sharing documents a walk in the park. Truly immersive audio visual technologies such as Sharp’s interactive BIG PADs can enrich classroom engagement and participation, while digital signage and online mail management systems can enhance communication in school and with the wider community. Sharp’s suite of solutions are designed to work together make technology easy, support excellent teaching and raise student attainment.

Halting the hackers: How robust devices can thwart cyber-criminals For more information contact: KCS Professional Services 0808 281 9439 |professionalservices@csltd.org.uk

With cyber crime on the rise, we’re becoming better educated on malicious emails and stronger passwords, but did you know that printers and MFDs could present a vulnerability in your network? Since they are as much of a target for hackers as a laptop, as an ISO 27001 accredited company, Sharp includes a number of standard and optional security features in our MFDs: •

Hard drive encryption as standard, for robust data protection

SSL Certificate Validation to avoid data interception

Alerts for unauthorised security setting changes

User whitelisting and authentication

Self-Healing System to protect intellectual property

Military grade MFD security conformity

Secure print release as standard

AES data encryption to secure information

Programmable data overwrite for data erasure

Document tracking and control with full audit trail logging


Delivering a greener, more affordable print strategy

With tight budgets and environmental pressures to reduce printed documents, Managed Print Services (MPS) might not be top of mind for many schools. Yet a robust MPS solution can actually help to resolve these issues. Through streamlining your print fleet, eliminating unnecessary administration and monitoring device performance, MPS can quickly deliver a reduction in print costs and wastage. The impact can be felt beyond print, as your devices can be integrated with cloud services as well as other technologies (such as our BIG PADs), the possibilities are endless. Our bespoke solutions are tailored to your needs; whatever the size of your establishment, we can work with you to achieve a greener, more affordable print strategy.

CLIMATE EMERGENCY BACKGROUND A large County Council committed to a net zero carbon emissions target for their own estate by 2030. To support their approach LASER was asked to provide practical and technical support to deliver a planned and costed approach to Councillors. LASER recommended undertaking the following key steps in order to produce a Carbon Descent Plan:

Scoped out current ‘own estate’ emissions considering principles of Greenhouse Gas Protocol (best recognised international standard), and proposed what sources should be included. Considered which emissions sources data is currently available for and which will need data collection processes establishing to allow measuring and modelling of the data going forwards. Forecast future Business As Usual emissions to 2050 based on government published forecasts e.g. including much more renewable electricity (nationally) in the future. Listed options to consider to take the Council from the business as usual emissions to the zero carbon target.

Modelled at high level the capital costs, carbon savings and financial benefits of a set of options.

84


SCOPING After an initial meeting and follow up calls to agree the scope to be applied to the target and action plan LASER drew up the following scope summary: SCOPE

CARBON FOOTPRINT AND BUSINESS AS USUAL FORECAST Once the scope was agreed LASER collected all relevant data and calculated the carbon footprint. Modelling was then carried out to forecast Business As Usual emissions. This created a forecast of future emissions based on current Council and Government policy.

ACTIONS LASER met regularly with Council officers in order to create a list of potential actions which could be carried out in order to substantially reduce their emissions. LASER then modelled the actions and proposed a mixed scale in order to meet the target at the lowest cost. The actions included in the modelling were: Reduce business miles travelled by 33% by 2030 70% of business miles to be via electric vehicle by 2030

Transport

Reduce fleet mileage by 10% 80% of fleet miles to be via electric vehicle by 2030

Energy Efficiency

Roll out LED lighting in all buildings where practicable

Electricity Generation

Install solar PV on roofs of 16 more corporate buildings

Estate Rationalisation

Reduce buildings estate by 35% by 2030 Build town centre renewable heat network

Reduce Heating Emissions

Switch remaining oil boilers to gas Move 30% of gas heating to heat pumps

Carbon Offsetting

Offset remaining emissions from 2030 onwards through an offset scheme

Other options were listed and may be modelled in a further iteration of the action plan: 1 1 1 1

Offshore Wind (either as investment in or Power Purchase Agreement) Greater ambition on switching heating from gas to electric or hydrogen Tree planting to offset emissions Hydrogen fuelled transport

MODELLING FOR ACTION PLAN LASER created a forecast of Greenhouse Gas emissions based on the included options. The initial profile was created below (note the negative section of the graph results from generating more electricity than the Council uses and utilising a carbon offset scheme) Emissions – Forecast with Planned Actions 20,000
