Library books. School books. Textbooks. Maps. Newspapers, journals, periodicals and magazines. Compact disks (CDs). Digital versatile disks (DVDs). Sound recordings. Video films. Subscription services. Library management services. Library services. Printed music. The Eastern Shires Purchasing Organisation (ESPO) is one of the UK's largest public sector procurement organisations. Our purpose is to provide our member local authorities and other clients with a comprehensive, cost effective procurement service covering a diverse range of products and services, as well as assisting clients with complex procurement projects. ESPO intends to renew its existing framework agreement covering the supply of all types of library stock materials. The new framework will be multi-supplier, and will include adult and children's fiction and non-fiction, reference material, CDs and DVDs, e-books, periodicals, computer games, etc. Stock will mostly be supplied ‘serviced', i.e. complete with stock labels, date stamps, RFID tags, and other items as specified. Delivery will be to central delivery points, or to individual branch libraries, schools, and other client establishments. Stock will often be ordered pre-publication or pre-release, using advanced information provided by the supplier. Suppliers must offer appropriate stock selection tools (such as websites, showrooms, and other facilities), and must be able to assist clients with stock selection. Suppliers must integrate where appropriate with the client's own IT systems to facilitate efficient ordering, payment and library stock catalogue management by the client. Some clients may require an additional range of services, including reader development and library promotion activities, library administration and management services and bibliographic services. The framework will also include the provision of a completely outsourced library service where required (e.g. if an organisation such as a local authority wished to outsource the operation of selected branch libraries, or even its entire library service). The framework will normally (but not always) be accessed by means of the reopening of competition among the parties to the Framework Agreement (i.e. ‘secondary competitions'). Such secondary competitions will be conducted by or on behalf of the individual client bodies concerned and may lead to the award of individual (client specific) call-off contracts, tailored to meet clients' specific requirements. The tender evaluation schemes for such call-off contracts will be specified in the secondary competition documentation in each case, and will reflect the particular priorities of the client concerned. An electronic reverse auction process may be used to award call-off contracts. The start and expiry dates of call-off contracts will not necessarily coincide with the start and expiry dates of the framework agreement itself. Call-off contracts may be awarded for any reasonable duration Whilst initially for use by local authorities served by ESPO (see www.espo.org for further details), being a Central Purchasing Body as defined by the EU Combined Procurement Directive 2004/18/EC, the Framework Agreement may also be open for use by the following classifications of user throughout all administrative regions of the UK: Central Government Departments and their Agencies; Local Authority Councils; Educational Establishments (including Academies); Police, Fire & Rescue and Coastguard Emergency Services; NHS and HSC Bodies, including Ambulance Services; Registered Charities; Registered Social Landlords.
