A Multi-Party Framework for the supply of Road Signs and Ancillaries for Public Service bodies including local authorities was published on www.etenders.gov.ie on the 16th of April 2019 by the Local Government Operational Procurement Centre (LGOPC).
The Framework is divided into two lots:
Lot 1: Permanent Prescribed Road Signs & Ancillaries
Lot 2: Temporary Roadworks Signs & Ancillaries
A Multi-Party Framework Agreement is a two-stage procurement mechanism whereby the Central Purchasing Body, in this case the Local Government Operational Procurement Centre, carries out a competition to appoint Suppliers to a Framework for certain works, supplies or services.
Public Service Bodies, including local authorities, will then run supplementary request for tenders among these suppliers for their particular region to procure road signs and ancillaries.
