II.1.3)Information about a public contract, a framework agreement or a dynamic purchasing system (DPS)
II.1.5)Short description of the contract or purchase(s)
The contracting authority shall only take the risk and potentially be liable to pay a fee (an ‘Abort Fee’) to cover a proportion of the costs incurred by the Provider in the event that it decides, through no fault of the Provider, to not proceed with the Project. In all other scenarios, the contracting authority is not able to take any financial risk in relation to payment of the Provider’s fees.
The Provider will be responsible initially at their own cost for undertaking and financing all services (including all design team services) required to:
— secure full planning permission for the new school build element, outline planning permission for any part of the residential development which falls outside of the New River conservation area, and full planning application for any part of the residential development falling within the New River conservation area, or as may be required. It should be noted that the School currently sits within land designated as Green Belt. The provider will need to have due regard to the need to ensure support from statutory consultees, in particular Sport England;
— secure all other necessary consents to allow the sale of the land and realisation of the project, including S77 consent for the sale of school playing fields, EFA academies approval as required by the academies title and release of land covenants, which may require approvals from Broxbourne Borough Council, Hertfordshire County Council and Secretary of State for Communities and Local Government.
— undertake a competitive process for the appointment of a contractor/developer, together with our legal advisors (as appropriate) and lead a competitive process to enable both the build the school and to undertake the residential development (such that the school is insulated from any interface risk between the two elements). The Provider will act as lead negotiator on behalf of the contracting authority for both the school works and the sale of the land for residential development. The Provider will also be responsible for producing all of the necessary specifications and design for the school (up to RIBA stage 3) required for this competitive process.
The Provider will be paid a percentage of the land value, commensurate with their sunk costs and the commercial risk that they have undertaken. While the majority of the fee would be expected to be paid upon execution of the contract with the developer and securing an implementable planning consent, an element of the fee would be contingent upon completion of the school building. It is expected that following execution of the contract with the developer, the Provider will continue to act as advisor to the school to ensure successful delivery of the Project. Further details are provided within the Information Memorandum which accompanies the Pre-Qualification Questionnaire.
The contracting authority is conducting this procurement exercise under the competitive procedure with negotiation pursuant to Article 29 of Directive 2014/24/EU and Regulation 29 of the Public Contracts Regulations 2015. In accordance with that procedure the contracting authority reserves the right to award the contract on the basis of initial tenders only, without conducting negotiations.
