The object of the framework agreement is the supply of non-inventory office supplies (MONI, as per the Spanish acronym), particularly those items included in the following categories:
Pens, writing and erasing items;
General office supplies;
Stamps and accessories;
Folders, filing systems and cardboard supplies;
Document transport and packaging items.
The object of the agreement does not include paper supplies, which is already centralised by virtue of Framework Agreement 20/2017, the drafting of identification cards and other printed materials, the expenses related to envelope preparation and non-inventory computer devices.
Since this is a framework agreement with all its terms established, acquisition will be performed with the need to call the parties to a new tender process. However, in application of Directive 2014/24/EU, the Particular Administrative Terms and Conditions (Spanish acronym: PCAP) establish as objective conditions to determine the successful bidders of the framework agreement 07/206 that this will be based on the lowest price and the broadest range of products.
The final list contains 211 items.
A significant effort has been made to rationalize, simplify and homogenize all goods under supply (thus eradicating the duplication of items or those not of general use), bearing in mind which constitute greater expense for the administration and the common features thereof.
19 geographical lots are established, with a number of successful bidders per lot (the number of successful bidders of each lot varies according to its estimated value).148 valid offers were presented under the tender process, corresponding to 23 different companies, with an assessment of a total of 53,452 products. On 2 December 2016, the Central Procurement Board agreed to award 76 bids corresponding to 14 different companies for the 19 lots (see announcement of contract award on the Public Sector Procurement Platform).
The term of the framework agreement is 2 years, with the possibility of an extension of up to a maximum of 2 additional years, coming into force at 20 days from its formalisation. Lots 1, 2, 4, 5, 7, 8, 9, 10, 11, 14, 15, 17, 18 and 19 were formalised on 11-04-2017. Lots 3, 6, 12, 13 and 16 were formalised on 01-06-2017. All the lots under the framework agreement have been extended as from the date of the end of their period of validity until 30-09-2020.
