Section IV: Procedure

IV.1)Type of procedure

IV.1.1)Type of procedure

Accelerated restricted
Justification for the choice of accelerated procedure: The accelerated restricted procedure is being used as there is an urgent requirement to appoint an architect for the waterside student residences project. The commencement of the architect procurement has not been possible until now as it is contingent on the University securing the necessary funding which has only just been secured. The appointed architect will need to integrate quickly with the existing design team for the campus master plan in order for the master project, which has already commenced, to progress according to the master programme. Any delay to the waterside student residences project will impact upon the master programme and the University?s ability to deliver this on time. Procurement of the remaining parts of the waterside development and the ability to complete these on time will also be dependent upon progress of the residences scheme and the architect?s early appointment is key to this. For these reasons the standard procurement timescales would be impractical and put the master programme at risk.

IV.1.2)Limitations on the number of operators who will be invited to tender or to participate

Envisaged number of operators: 5
Objective criteria for choosing the limited number of candidates: As set out in PQQ
