This Tender is for the Supply and Delivery of Fresh Fruit for Prisoners Tuck Shop to the Northern Ireland Prison Service.
The Northern Ireland Prison Service (NIPS) is an Executive agency of the Department of Justice NI (DOJNI) and is responsible for the management of Her Majesty’s Prisons in Northern Ireland. The Prison Service operates under the control of the Department of Justice for Northern Ireland. It is governed by the Prison Act (Northern Ireland) 1953 and the Prison and Young Offenders Rules (Northern Ireland) 1995.
NIPS provide inmates with the opportunity to purchase fresh fruit from the tuckshop as food parcels are no longer permitted.
There are three Prisons in Northern Ireland which are HMP Maghaberry and HMP Magilligan which accommodate adult male prisoners and Hydebank Wood Prison and Young Offenders Centre which accommodates both Young Offenders and adult female Prisoners. These Prisons vary in terms of the number of Prisoners accommodated, the types of Prisoner and the degree of security required.
