W2WA Procurement Programme - Invitation to Tender


Wheels to Work Association is inviting Invitations to Tender for its procurement programme.  This first procurement stage is  related to associated hardware and not machines or services e.g. insurance or finance.

The Wheels to Work Schemes provide transport, typically scooters and mopeds, enabling people access to employment or education opportunities that would otherwise be unobtainable.  

There are currently 29 schemes operating in the UK. An increased number of schemes recognises a potential target figure of 60 throughout the country, all of which could be expected ultimately to operate in the region of 100 scooters per scheme.

Causing schemes to move to greater level of sustainability will be achieved by sharing of best practice and by creating procurement contracts for the products and services required by individual schemes whereby they can benefit from the prices derived from a national purchase arrangement, but continue to receive local support and direct deliveries.

An invitation to tender and explanatory background document is now available for the supply of motorcycle clothing and can be obtained by emailing info@wheels2workassociation.org.

Indication of a desire to tender can be signalled by returning the completed background document as a hardcopy to The Chairman Wheels to Work Association, 1 Rye Hill Office Park, Birmingham Road, Allesley, Coventry CV5 9AB by 31st August 2013.
