It is currently envisaged that the call-off contract (JCT Design and Build 2011 with amendments for stage 2) for University Court Phase 1 will be awarded at successful completion of stage 2 in or around November 2017. Award of the stage 2 construction contract for University Court Phase 1 will be subject to success completion of stage 1 and the decision to proceed to stage 2 will be at the University’s discretion and subject to all the terms of the Pre-Construction Services Agreement. The University reserves the right to compete the stage 2 contract at the end of stage 1 in the event that the University is not satisfied the contractor’s 1st stage performance under the Pre-Construction Services Agreement. The University Court Phase 1 call-off contract will be a JCT 2011 Design & Build contract with amendments. The successful framework contractor will be expected to take novation of the design team. The estimated value of the University Court Phase 1 contract is 60 000 000 GBP. The University expects the successful framework contractor appointed to University Court Phase 1 to provide either or both a bond or parent company guarantee in the form prescribed by the University.

Legal forms: The University reserves the right to require groups of economic operators to take a particular legal form if awarded the contract or to require a single operator to take primary liability for a contract to be performed by a group of economic operators or to take joint and several liability irrespective of the legal form a group takes.

Right to cancel: The University reserves the right to discontinue this procurement at any time, which includes the right not to award the framework or any call-off contract, and does not bind itself to accept the most economically advantageous (or any other) tender, and reserves the right to award the contract in part or to call for new tenders should it consider necessary. The University shall not be liable for any costs or expenses incurred by any candidate or tenderer in connection with the completion and return of any information contained in this Contract Notice, or the completion and submission of any tender, irrespective of the outcome of the competition or if the competition is cancelled or postponed.
