The UK Delegation (which is a joint FCO/MOD Delegation), is expected to relocate in the 2nd/3rd Qtr 2016 but this programme is being managed by the main NATO project team.
The new building is necessary due to poor health and safety standards in the present building; and NATO enlargement in recent years.
Fit-out works for the UK offices are expected to take place between Jan 2015 – Oct 2015. Mobilisation on site can begin in Oct 2014.
The UK has been allocated a fourth floor location with an office area of 1 909 m² GIA. NIA 1 650m².
New office gives us the opportunity to provide a modern, compliant, fit for purpose, safe and secure UKDel platform at NATO HQ for many years to come
The procurement procedure will be a 2 stage restricted (PQQ followed by ITT) following the The EUDefence and Security Public Contracts Regulations (DSPCR) 2011.
Due to UK security requirements and like 3 other nations the FCO/MOD made the decision to fit-out its own office rather than use the main building contractor as other nations are doing.
Interested parties should familiarise themselves with the procedure and the extra security requirements that may be evaluated through the procurement process. Further details can be seen here. https://www.gov.uk/government/publications/the-european-union-defence-and-security-public-contracts-regulations-dspcr-2011
Contractors will be required to provide a workforce capable of obtaining a mixture of FCO SC and DV clearances.
