Date: Tuesday 31st October 2023
Isle of Man Post Office (IOMPO) is running a tender exercise (on the Isle of Man Government procurement website) for the provision of counter and/or parcel collection services in Port Erin.
It comes following the decision by the incumbent sub postmaster to terminate his contract for service with effect from 30th March 2024. IOMPO is seeking to maintain counter, postal and bill payment services in this area through the provision of a counter and/or a parcel collection point. Its preferred outcome would be to select a single preferred supplier covering both the counter and parcel collection services. However, consideration will be given to submissions from interested parties who could provide one or more of the services. This opportunity is for a fixed period, until 31st March 2025, with the option to extend one year.
Stu Peters MHK, Chairman of Isle of Man Post Office said: “I would like to place on record our grateful thanks to the outgoing sub postmaster for the services he has provided on our behalf and that of our commercial partners for the past 19 years.”
He continued: “By starting the expression of interest now it will allow us to adhere to the required procurement protocol and reduce the risk of any break in service for Port Erin residents.”
The closing date for expressing an interest in the tender is noon Friday 24th November 2023. Information can be found online on IOMPO’s website www.iompost.com/about/procurement-activities/ and on the Isle of Man Government website www.gov.im/categories/business-and-industries/expressions-of-interest/
