The Big Lottery Fund’s Capital team in Scotland requires a suitably qualified service provider to assist with the assessment process for both stage 1 and stage 2 applications to the Fund’s capital grant programmes. Current capital programmes in Scotland are Growing Community Assets, Life Transitions and 21st Century Life. Assessments at stage 1 may cover other funding programmes. Programmes may be removed or added during the course of the Contract. The purpose of these assessments is to give non-technical funding staff an evaluation of the credibility of the applications in terms of technical issues. These assessments should capture the “deliverability” of the projects in terms of cost and timescales and identify any technical constraints that may prevent them proceeding. Assessments are desk based and include an assessment of a projects land ownership, design information, construction cost plan, sustainability, accessibility, cash flow, programme, statutory consents, site appraisals, technical project team members, procurement and project and risk management strategy. The Service Provider will assess: • Approximately 35 stage 1 assessments a year • Approximately 15 stage 2 assessments a year There will also be a general provision for “capital advice” on the basis of the same hourly rate used to calculate the stage 1 and 2 assessments of approximately 60 hours per annum These numbers are approximate and may vary. The Fund will enter into a contract for an initial two year period and will have the option to extend for a further one year. The estimated value of this contract is £23,333 inclusive of VAT and expenses per annum (£70,000 inclusive of VAT and all expenses over three years). The Fund reserves the right to increase the value of the contract to up to £100,000 inclusive of VAT and expenses at any time during the contract.
