Short description of the contract or purchase(s)

Refurbishment work. The authority is considering placing a 10-year contract (5-years fixed with five 1-year options).

This will involve:

• the annual refurbishment of a large quantity of (approximately 200 000 to 350 000) assorted ammunition containers to predefined standards. There are around 50 different container types requiring refurbishment and a considerably larger quantity of internal and external packaging materiel. Typically, these range from the H84 ammunition container (280 x 83 x 74 mm) to the L19 unit load (1 020 x 1 195 x 1 350 mm) container and component part materials include steel, aluminium, polythene, polyethylene, polystyrene, cardboard and wood.

The active process for each container will be:

— storing

— cleaning

— repair (minimal)

— repainting

— testing

— receipting and issuing.

The refurbishment procedure will also involve the sifting and review of component parts to maximise stock recycling. The work requires a high degree of flexibility and focus on production targets, whilst maintaining quality standards.

• Post-design services that provides drawing and manufacturing services to ensure policy compliant movement of ammunition for training and operations.

• To provide fixed annual deliveries for the supply of 1 814 kg NATO standard MEXE pallets for an annual allocation. To meet the MOD’s requirement.

• To provide pallet trays, top (SV3512), middle (SV3513) and bottom (SV3514) to meet DGM and defence munitions (DM) requirement of each tray per annum. Pallet Trays are mandated in Def Stan 00-814 as an essential, integral, safety component utilised in the transportation of H83 and M2A1 ammunition containers, the most commonly used ammunition containers by UK MOD. The purpose of the trays is to prevent any movement of individual ammunition containers on NATO 2 tonne pallets during transit.

• A full programme of recycling of surplus and obsolete materiel in line with UK Government policy of reducing landfill waste and incorporating ‘closed loop’ sustainability (except for metal waste, which falls under the remit of Defence Equipment and Sales Agency (DESA) responsibility).

• Provide seals (currently utilising TIK) to enable Front Line Command (FLC) to comply with the sealing of explosives packaging as mandated in JSP 762 Pt 2 (V8.0 Sep 18) and JSP 482 Ch13.

• When required the procurement of new materiel to meet DGM packaging needs and which will offer the authority a best value for money supply solution.
