The Authority is considering placing a 10-year contract (5-years fixed with five 1-year options) This will involve:
• The annual refurbishment of a large quantity of (approximately 200,000 to 350,000) assorted ammunition containers to predefined standards. There are around 50 different container types requiring refurbishment and a considerably larger quantity of internal and external packaging materiel. Typically, these range from the H84 ammunition container (280x83x 74mm) to the L19 unit load (1020x1195x1350mm) container and component part materials include steel, aluminium, polythene, polyethylene, polystyrene, cardboard and wood. The active process for each container will be:
o Repair (minimal)
o Receipting and issuing.
The refurbishment procedure will also involve the sifting and review of component parts to maximise stock recycling. The work requires a high degree of flexibility and focus on production targets, whilst maintaining quality standards.
