II.2.4)Description of the procurement:

SL requires a Civils Construction Partner with considerable construction management expertise in a regulated industry to contribute to Major Projects solutions and to manage and deliver the construction of Major Projects. In the early years these will be predominantly Major Projects with a civil and structural works bias but this focus may change over time. As regards the initial Major Projects, it is anticipated that the Lot 3 Civils Construction Partner will be the lead Construction Partner for the SRP project, whilst the Lot 4 Process Construction Partner will be the lead Construction Partner for the SCP Project. For the construction element of the other Major Projects, SL anticipates that approximately 50 % will be led by the Lot 3 Partner. This proportion and the methodologies for the allocation of the construction elements of Major Projects will be further developed in the ITN and post award as part of the comprehensive procurement plan for the PPP Partnership.

The Lot 3 & Lot 4 Partners will work collaboratively together (and with the other Partners) to develop an integrated supply chain as part of the procurement plan for the PPP Partnership to deliver the portfolio of Major Projects.

The scope of Lot 3 comprises Major Projects and Site-Wide Project Delivery Improvements. These two elements are explained in more detail below.

Major Projects

Services in support of the delivery of these Major Projects individually and at a programme level will include but not be limited to:

— Managing the construction of Major Projects including:

— construction phase planning and associated logistics;

— on site construction, installation and commissioning including the management, inspection and quality assurance of these activities;

— Supporting SL in its capacity as Intelligent Customer in the active commissioning of Major Projects;

— Supporting the Lot 1 Partner in defining the delivery strategy for the Major Projects, including an overall acquisition strategy, cost estimates and delivery schedule development for the potential full portfolio of Major Projects, and resource and capability planning;

— Support to the Lot 1 and 2 Partners throughout the project lifecycle in regard to constructability reviews, value engineering and value management, to ensure the integration of construction consideration and expertise into all phases of a Major Project;

— Supporting the PPP Partnership in developing and improving its construction arrangements through provision of expertise in construction methodology and benchmarking, including design to support construction’s phased delivery and appropriate modularisation; and

— Supporting the Lot 1 and Lot 2 Partners in engaging with SL’s EPO and programmes to develop the portfolio of future Major Projects, deliver studies and develop the forward schedule of Major Projects.

As with the other Lot Partners, the Civils Construction Partner will be required to work with the other PPP Partners (i.e. the Lot Partners and SL) to develop an aligned delivery culture for the PPP Partnership. SL will also make available people from within its organisation to work within the PPP Partnership to support the Lot Partners in the delivery of their respective services and works (see MOI).

SL estimates the value of the PPP Project to be between 3 000 000 000 GBP and 4 500 000 000 GBP based on the current identified scope (see MOI). The 7 000 000 000 GBP estimated value in this Contract Notice recognises the challenge of estimating the total value of a project with such longevity. It includes the estimated value of each of the 4 Lots. Based on SL experience over the last decade and beyond, it also recognises the potential for change/increase in the value range attached to the current identified scope. Such changes could, for example arise out of changes in: UK nuclear strategy; SL Site strategy; costs; changes in technologies; and the operation and development of the PPP Partnership. Any and all such change/increase in value will require SL internal approvals and be subject to detailed project definition, as appropriate, in line with SL’s gated project approval process. The duration of the PPP Project is currently stated to be 20 years. This duration coincides with the delivery of the last Major Project as currently envisaged in the portfolio of the Major Projects under the PPP Project. SL does not intend that a Major Project will be approved for delivery under the PPP Project if it has not reached the Detailed Design Gate in SL’s Gated Process (see the MOI) by the end of the contract term. However, SL reserves the right at its sole discretion to extend the duration of the PPP Project to enable completion of any Major Projects the delivery of which would extend beyond the end of year 20 of the PPP Project. Each of the Lot Partners will be appointed to carry out a specific role in the partnership (see descriptions above). For the PPP Project, SL will have two different and distinct roles: first and foremost, its role as Intelligent Client and Intelligent Customer; secondly its role as the fifth delivery partner. Together, the 4 Lot Partners and SL (as a fifth PPP Partner) will constitute the PPP Partners/the PPP Partnership. Each of the Lot Partners appointed pursuant to the PPP procurement process will enter into two arrangements with SL: (i) a contract specific to each Lot Partner under which the Lot Partner will be required to provide the relevant services; and (ii) an Aligned Incentive Agreement (‘AIA’) which is intended to motivate collaboration, aligned behaviours, etc. and to assist in delivering SL’s longer term objectives for the PPP. Lot Partners will be required to put in place subcontracting arrangements as necessary to deliver the PPP Project (the scope of which are included as part of this procurement process). Sub-contracting arrangements will not be subject to secondary competition via further EU contract notices. SL also has in place a range of existing site-wide framework agreements and contracts which may be utilised to fulfil those subcontracting requirements (see the MOI). Use of these existing arrangements will be for the PPP Partnership to determine together with SL and is expected to be most relevant for the Lot 3 and Lot 4 Partners. SL may wish to establish a pre-mobilisation phase post announcement of the preferred bidders. This may include the award of a preliminary contract to one or more of the Lot Partners to facilitate any such pre-mobilisation phase. The scope and value of any such pre-mobilisation contract is factored into the scope and value of each of the Lot contracts. Further detail on pre-mobilisation will be set out in the ITN. SL is committed to delivering improvements in social impact and will require the Lot Partners to actively contribute to the attainment of SL’s social impact objectives (see MOI).
