Initially, this procurement exercise was divided into 2 lots. however, it has been decided to procure each lot as separate frameworks.
The Contracting Authority and other public bodies interested in utilising the framework arrangements contemplated by this procurement are transforming the manner in which Civils and infrastructure projects are procured and managed. The works may include design and other services as required for Civils and infrastructure, design and build works, regeneration/ repair and maintenance works or construction works.
They will adopt the principles of partnering through the development of longer term relationships through the supply chain, integrated design and construction teams, shared risk/rewards and performance management. The partnering ethos will involve partners selected for their capability and commitment to these principles. It will include target cost setting, open book accounting, shared problem solving and a strong commitment to all aspects of continuous improvement.
A key feature of this approach will be to develop a spirit of mutual trust and teamwork throughout the supply chain. The framework arrangements may be used by public bodies as set out in this notice. To achieve continuity in the availability of a framework arrangement, Scape procure will review future service requirements and capacity regularly to determine when to carry out its next parallel tender exercise in the range stipulated. Note that the PQQ contains important background information and contextual information, together with exclusion clauses relating to the fact that the Contracting Authority may terminate or suspend this procurement at any time, without cost or liability to the Contracting Authority.
The contract conditions will be set out in the invitation to tender documents. Interested companies will be required to complete a pre-qualification questionnaire (PQQ) and companies must demonstrate commitment to partnering including working with clients and their partners, shared problem solving and continuous improvement. Any queries relating to the technical aspect of the works should be made to the contact in I.1) through Delta. A breakdown of the evaluation criteria will be detailed in the tender documents. An indicative procurement timetable is included in the PQQ. The common procurement vocabulary stated are deemed to include, for the avoidance of doubt and unless otherwise stated, the category and sub-category codes below the CPV codes stated, i.e. 45310000 is deemed to include 45313000; 45212000 is deemed to include 45212100 and 45212110.
