II.2.4) Description of the procurement:

Lot 2) Proposal to best meet elements of AHDB Additional requirements specification. No budget has been allocated.

For Lot 2 AHDB are at this stage looking for an outline of how an agency propose to get to the measures required, in particular the volume estimate read.

The volume read is a critical requirement, as there is strong industry need to get a measure of the split in sales between grocery retail and the Foodservice market. AHDB have developed an internal model/report that provides such a read at a total protein level using assumptions around portion size, based on FSA portion sizes and the size of the public sector

AHDB are aware that measures such as volume may not be easily calculated and would therefore work closely with the nominated supplier to build a robust model for estimating such data over the course of the contract. Your proposal should clearly outline how much set-up and ongoing servicing time you estimate would be required to run, critically a volume but also a value report by yourselves at a total protein and at a cut and products level along with associated costs. Your proposal should also outline what level of AHDB support would be required in the set up process.
