II.2.4) Description of the procurement: The successful Supplier will be required to provide catering services for Sir Graham Balfour School.
We want our catering company to have all of the essential abilities and skills to provide an outstanding catering service to our students, staff and visitors at our school.
You should have the knowledge of how to provide exceptional dining experiences, be able to manage everyone around you and be able to address a concerning matter and take quick actions where required.
Providing a high quality and reliable catering service has a major effect on the whole learning experience for all our students, staff and visitors and this is why the School is passionate about having very high quality catering facilities, with excellent food choices which are nutritionally balanced for everyone. Having excellent customer care, the caterer should be polite, diplomatic and thoughtful while dealing with all our students, staff and visitors.
The way you operate in our school is crucial to ensure customer satisfaction and to encourage students continue to use the facilities and enjoy the mealtimes.
Your menus and pricing structure need to be clear to the students so that they can understand exactly what the offer is to them.
We are looking for a refreshing and innovative approach that reflects, amongst other things, the changing profile of student life and their food preferences and types and preferred styles of dining.
It’s essential to the school that the Suppliers bidding for this tender think broadly about all issues and not just the core catering service to compete and be successful in obtaining the contract of the school. We would like the Supplier to always be on the lookout for new ways of doing things, coming up with new solutions for many common problems.
Suppliers are requested to ensure they consider all the aspects of service delivery and think carefully about the catering requirements.
The school already knows that the successful provision of catering services is very much dependent on the development of a good working relationship between the Client of a facility and the Supplier’s catering manager and catering team on site. The Supplier is expected to use its best endeavours to cultivate such a relationship to benefit the smooth running of each establishment.
Key factors for the school are:
•A suitable and workable staffing structure to ensure that sufficient catering services will be provided every day
•Flexibility of service delivery
•What cover arrangements will be applied when inevitably some staff are off with illness
•Monitoring of standards and service delivery
•Availability and responsiveness of management to any issues raised.
The new contract will commence on 1 September 2022, for an initial 3 year term with the option of additional 2 x 1 year extensions.
For the avoidance of doubt, TUPE Regulations will apply to this contract.
