Description

This Contract Notice relates to the Term Consultancy Contract only (item 2 below).

Buckinghamshire Council (the Council) is the Highway Authority responsible for maintaining the highway network in Buckinghamshire. This includes the maintenance and consultancy.

The Term Consultancy Contract is used for the provision of professional services for infrastructure-related projects and services with regards highways.

The Consultant provides professional technical resources to deliver these services efficiently and effectively. They also will be required to assist with the development and delivery of the service to drive continual improvement, value for money and to introduce innovative ways to deliver projects.

The Consultant shall undertake the role of Principal Designer under the CDM Regulations 2015.

The Council’s current integrated services contract is due to expire on 31 March 2023 and therefore the Council is commencing the procurement of its replacement service provision.

Following a fundamental review and wide consultation, the Council has identified the following new service delivery model:

  • A Term Maintenance Contract to include routine and reactive maintenance, minor improvement works and winter services (procurement exercise commenced in August 2021 currently ongoing).
  • A Term Consultancy Contract to include design and other professional services.
  • Two separate framework arrangements each of a maximum 4-year duration.

Framework One – Minor Works

Framework Two – Major works

This Contract Notice relates to the Term Consultancy Contract (item 2) only (“the Contract”) and the Council anticipates that calls for competition for the frameworks will be published over the course of the next twelve months.

It is expected that the Contract will be for an initial term of eight (8) years subject to extension (see II.2.11 below) and be based on the NEC4 Term Service Contract (as appropriately amended and augmented by the Council).

The Council intends that the successful Tenderer will form part of an alliance arrangement between the Council and one or more of the other highways contractors appointed by the Council as set out above.

Transfer of Undertakings (Protection of Employment) Regulations 2006 (TUPE) as amended may apply to this contract.

Further details of the proposed works and services forming the scope of the Contract and its commercial terms are set out in the procurement documents, and full details will appear in the tender documentation accompanying the invitation to submit an initial tender.
