You will also get details of any opportunities listed by other Scottish public bodies.

INVITATION TO TENDER FOR FRAMEWORK CONTRACT Tree Health Pest and Disease surveys – Scotland - Framework No: FW0025

The Forestry Commission is inviting tenders for the provision of woodland and tree surveys (including urban trees) to detect, assess and sample for the presence and extent of specific tree pests and diseases.

This framework contract is for provision of tree health survey services in defined areas across Scotland. These defined areas coincide with present FC Scotland’s Conservancy boundaries, (see annex 1 for map). In each geographical area, provision of two survey types is sought.

1. Standard survey –where observations of standing trees are sufficient to meet the survey requirements. A standard survey could be carried out by a single surveyor working alone.

2. Survey with sample tree felling – where it may be necessary to fell a number of trees at a site in order to observe symptoms at close range or to collect necessary samples for diagnosis. This element of the contract should cover forest situations where samples trees can be safely felled from the ground and does not cover complex situations where aerial section felling or the use of a mobile work platform is necessary.

Both of these survey types will have a call-off list in each of the defined geographical areas. Prospective providers can submit tenders for any number of lots across the five defined areas.

The purpose of this framework contract is to put in place this additional resource covering all Scotland. The aim of this survey work will be to generate a rapid picture of the extent and severity of a disease to inform the development of appropriate management strategies.

The estimated total value of the contract is is likely to be in the region of £200,000 to £1,000,000.

The anticipated contract start date will be 1st June 2016 and be for 4 years
