The Passenger Transport Framework is a joint procurement between Bournemouth Borough Council and the Borough of Poole. Bournemouth Borough Council is leading on the procurement process. A Framework Agreement is an agreement that sets out the terms under which individual contracts (call offs) are let during the contract period. The contract will cover 3 lots; — Provision of Minibuses 9-16 passenger seats (including minibuses with adaptations for the transportation of passengers travelling in wheelchairs) — Provision of Taxis, Private Hire Vehicles or Social Cars of up to 8 passenger seats (including vehicles manufactured or adapted for the transportation of passengers travelling in wheelchairs) — Provision of ‘AdHoc Provision' of Taxis and Private Hire Vehicles for up to 8 passengers. “Ad Hoc Provision” will include short notice and one-off bookings. The contracts will run between September 2016 and August 2020. Based on historical data, the total, estimated spend for the contract is 13 000 000 GBP. The spend is equally spread between both Councils over the life of the contract (6 500 000 GBP/6 5 500 000 GBP), however individual routes and call-offs will vary between the two Councils. The figures are estimates and the Councils can’t guarantee that this value of business can be generated during the period of the contract.
