The Comhairle is currently reviewing the Capital Works Framework as was indicated in the original PQQ published in 2014:
‘The Comhairle reserve the right, if they consider it necessary, to renew/review this Framework on an annual basis, offering contractors who missed the opportunity access to the Framework. If you are an existing framework Contractor at the point of an annual review you need do nothing more — your inclusion will continue with your current status and information unless you are require to provide updates.’
Contractors who have already been accepted on to the framework need not do anything unless they wish to be added on to additional Lot(s), in which case they will have to submit a PQQ response once it is published. Contractors who were originally unsuccessful in being appointed on to the framework or who missed the opportunity first time round will be able to submit a response to the PQQ once published.
The contract will be split into two lots and contractors can submit offers for one or both lots and for any of the options within Lot 1.
Lot 1 will be for works valued GBP 1 000 — GBP 150 000 (sub-lotted into requirements for several works projects where a General, Electrical, Mechanical or Plumbing contractor takes the lead).
Lot 2 will be for works valued GBP 150 000 — GDP 600 000. Any projects with an estimated value in excess of GBP 600 000 will fall out-with the scope of this framework and will be undertaken as stand-alone procurement exercises.
The programme to be delivered will be for works for buildings, covering the whole island chain. The projects approved primarily relate to renovation and remodelling but may include alterations, extensions and possibly new builds. These projects will be packaged as ‘several works’, under formal building contracts, to be delivered by a main contractor who will provide and/or sub contract in all of the trades needed to deliver the project.
The framework will be for a 4 year period. At this point no specific projects can be confirmed, however it is anticipated that there will be a programme of approximately GBP 10 000 000 of works undertaken through this framework.
