II.2.4) Description of procurement: About Carmel College and its vision
Carmel College is an outstanding college that is a centre of educational excellence, it has a vibrant and caring community. Carmel is a Catholic sixth form college for the whole community and, as such, excellence, support, challenge, care and opportunity are at the heart of everything.

Carmel delivers over 40 courses, Carmel+ including the High Achievers+ and Enrichment Programmes as well as the academic and wider support and facilities.

Carmel’s Vision – A Catholic College for the Community
•is founded on the person, example and teaching of Jesus Christ
•acknowledges the need for God and for the guidance of the Holy Spirit in the creation of a truly Christian community
•believes that every individual is made in the image and likeness of God, to be valued, respected, nurtured and challenged
•promotes self-esteem of the individual and enables students to make a valuable contribution to society
•upholds Gospel values of justice, love, peace, reconciliation and concern for the disadvantaged
•celebrates the richness of creation; respects and explores differences of faith and culture; and fosters ecumenical collaboration.

All members of the College Community are expected to make an active contribution to this Vision.
Carmel is made up of 5 buildings of varying ages. As well as substantial grounds to include pitches and sports fields. It has its own site team which will remain with the College but is limited with technology to support M&E activity.
The M&E services are delivered by a number of contractors, all using their own systems and having various methods of reporting. Whilst documentation is clear and up to date, there is no central system in which to hold it and therefore manual processes are currently adopted.
The College is looking for a trusted partner, who will self-deliver a high proportion of the Hard services, to include Maintenance and PPM planning and reactive works. With the delivery of services should come a comprehensive technology package, giving the client access to all files and statutory documents, as well as a compliance and helpdesk log oversight.
There will also be an opportunity for the preferred supplier to support the College on Asset Lifecycle Planning and Capital Projects, which sit outside of the scope of this contract.
The ‘education' experienced partner must support the delivery model with technology to drive a transparent approach which remains compliant at all times.
The full services in scope are:
- Mechanical Equipment Includes HVAC,( AHUs, A/C, boilers, gas Installation, air supply and extraction)
- Catering Equipment
- Emergency lighting
