How To Choose The Best Vendor For The Atal Tinkering Lab Setup?

There are many vendors that the schools can approach for the Atal Tinkering lab setup. Choosing the best vendor depends on factors such as the background of the company, the amount of help and support they are providing to their client schools, and what additional equipment they are offering apart from all the four major packages. 

Each ATL school is required to set up ATL, inaugurate and make it operational within the 3 months’ time after receiving the grant-in-aid money. 

It is mandatory for all the schools to purchase all the ATL related equipment as per the ‘ATL Equipment List’ 

Before starting, let’s discuss the guidelines that every vendor needs to follow while delivering the ATL equipment to the client school in the next section. 

What Are The Guidelines Which Every Vendor Needs To Follow For ATL Equipment?

After the delivery of the equipment, it is mandatory for all vendors to provide the required installation and equipment training to the schools. This training consists of teaching the Principal/ATL -In Charge/faculty members about the best practices of handling and using the equipment at no additional charge.

Apart from these listed below are the guidelines that every vendor needs to follow:

1. A 2 years of comprehensive warranty at no additional charge must be provided to the school by the vendors. In case the school needs any kind of repairing of any ATL equipment, then it is the duty of the vendor to provide a replacement for that particular equipment till that is fully repaired. 

2. One thing all vendors need to remember is that the delivery time should not be more than 2 months. The vendor needs to clearly indicate the entire timeline of delivery of packages, installation, and training in advance. 

3. A 3 year comprehensive AMC must be provided by the vendor that must indicate the terms and conditions. 

4. The schools can spend a maximum amount of Rs. 7,00,000/- (Rupees Seven Lakhs Only) on all four packages + Advance kits. Please keep in mind that the total quotation for all four packages + Advance kits should not exceed Rs. 7,00,000/- (Rupees Seven Lakhs Only). 

5. At the time of purchase of equipment, it is mandatory for the vendor to provide all the necessary documents for verification by the school. Also, they need to ensure that the authorized signatory must sign the required documents.

6. It is the responsibility of the vendors to maintain a supply chain of consumables and other necessary items for 5 years. 

7. It is mandatory for the vendors to clearly indicate both itemized prices and package-wise pricing and provide a clear and detailed specification and brand name of all the ATL equipment.
