The Ministry of Defence (the Authority) has a requirement for a reserve capability for the delivery of support requirements when a capability gap exists between emerging operational requirements and conventional Defence procurement mechanisms. This contract will run from 1.5.2016 to 1.5.2018, with options to extend for a further duration of up to 2 years.
The OSCC is a 2 stage non-exclusive enabling arrangement between PJHQ and a single contracting entity with global reach. It will support critical operational requirements with rapidly available and flexible outputs. Stage 1 is an operational support planning capability with Stage 2 being the delivery capability.
The OSCC will potentially be required at any stage during the Planning, Mounting, Deployment, Sustainment and Re-deployment phases of UK operations. Utilisation is expected to be highest during the Planning, Mounting and Deployment phases. Specific requirements will be raised on a case by case basis.
OSCC will focus on but will not be restricted to 4 Defence Capability sets, namely:
— Infrastructure — planning, design and construction;
— Provision of support services;
— Equipment procurement;
— Personnel/equipment augmentation.
The expenditure against this Contract will be based on usage, therefore the advertised value is not guaranteed. Historical activity, set against the backdrop of operations in Afghanistan, indicate that the current solution generates annual usage in the region of a value of 2 000 000 GBP. However, this does not reflect potential requirements from UK Deference’s move to a contingent posture.
The Contract will be let to a List X Company or a Company willing and able to attain List X status.
Following pre-qualification and prior to invitation to tender, the Authority will hold a requirement familiarisation workshop with all pre-qualified potential suppliers.
A Pre-Qualification Questionnaire (PQQ) exercise will form part of the EOI process. Suppliers must read through this set of instructions and follow the process to respond to this opportunity.

The information and/or documents for this opportunity are available on http://www.contracts.mod.uk/delta

You must register on this site to respond, if you are already registered you will not need to register again, simply use your existing username and password. Please note there is a password reminder link on the homepage.
Suppliers must log in, go to your Response Manager and add the following Access Code: 393GG75AK7. Please ensure you follow any instruction provided to you here.

If you experience any difficulties please refer to the online Frequently Asked Questions (FAQs) or the User Guides or contact the MOD DCO Helpdesk by emailing — support@contracts.mod.uk or call +44 800282324.

The deadline for the PPQ response is 23:55, 29.11. 2015.
Potential Suppliers should note that any PQQs received after this time and date will not be considered.
This Contract Notice is not to be construed as confirmation that a tender/contract will subsequently be issued; announcements are for information only. Any expenditure, work or effort undertaken prior to contract award will be at the Supplier’s own risk.

Further details of this requirement can be obtained from Defence Contracts online (www.contracts.mod.uk).

Suppliers interested in working with the Ministry of Defence should register on the MOD Supplier Information Database (SID) Register, available atwww.contracts.mod.uk

The MOD SID is a database of active and potential suppliers available to all MOD and UK Defence procurement personnel, and is the main supplier database of MOD Procurement organisations. Please note: the registration and publication of a company profile on the MOD SID does not mean or imply that the supplier has in any way been vetted or approved by the MOD. Suppliers wishing to compete for advertised MOD contracts must respond to any specific call for competition by submitting a separate expression of interest in accordance with the instructions of the purchasing organisation.
From 2.4.2014 the Government is introducing its new Government Security Classifications Policy (GSC) to replace the current Government Protective Marking Scheme. A key aspect of this is the reduction in the number of security classifications used. All suppliers to the Department are encouraged to make themselves aware of the changes as it may impact on this Requirement. The link below to the Gov.uk website provides information on the new GSC.

https://www.gov.uk/government/publications/government-security-classifications

The Authority reserves the right to amend any condition related to security of information to reflect any changes in national law or government policy. If any contract documents are accompanied by instructions on safeguarding classified information (e.g. a Security Aspects Letter), the Authority reserves the right to amend the terms of these instructions to reflect any changes in national law or government policy, whether in respect of the applicable protective marking scheme, specific protective markings given, the aspects to which any protective marking applies, or otherwise.
