The Ministry of Defence principally on its own behalf but also on behalf of the bodies referred to in section VI.3, is seeking expressions of interest from suppliers wishing to participate in a multiparty framework agreement for the provision of the aforesaid types of works and associated services at the locations mentioned above and as more particularly described in the PQQ. The Ministry intends to establish a multi-participant framework agreement. The agreement will operate on the basis that orders will be placed (following a mini-tender) and the successful supplier will act as Principal Contractor with single point of responsibility for the management and delivery of a specific project at 1 (or more) MOD establishment(s) located within Scotland. The Framework Agreement will be for a period of 4 years, with options to extend for up to a further 3 years, taken at the discretion of the Ministry. Other UK Contracting Authorities (as referred to in VI.3) with requirements for the types of works & services referred to in this notice and which may be classified as sensitive works or sensitive services within the scope of Directive 2009/81/EC may subject to the exact nature of their requirement (and in particular subject to it falling within the scope of the said directive) and subject to the prior approval of the Ministry, call off the framework.
The successful supplier appointed under each call off from the Framework Agreement, will be responsible for co-ordinating and integrating the activities of their supply chain including consultants, subcontractors and suppliers and performing all tasks necessary to achieve the stated requirements and demonstrate fitness for purpose. The framework agreement will include delivery of such services related to the construction of new buildings and facilities, refurbishment of existing buildings and infrastructure work as the Ministry may require. It is envisaged that detailed design will normally be included for projects procured through the Framework Agreement. Some projects may require the successful supplier to undertake the entirety of the design process, including the development and completion of the full design and all work associated with planning applications. Maintenance of completed projects may be required during a “compliance period” to establish that performance in accordance with anticipated design parameters is being achieved. The specific projects that may be procured under the Framework Agreement cannot be clearly defined at this stage but the principal intention is that it shall be generally available for use for procuring projects up to the approximate value of GBP 12 000 000 at the discretion of the Ministry but there shall be no exclusivity nor any guaranteed volume of work.

The Ministry is committed to pursuing Government’s Sustainable Development agenda and seeks to work with suppliers experienced in delivering environmental, social and economic benefits, whilst minimising harmful effects. We wish to reduce the through-life costs and inefficiencies associated with waste and excess resource and energy consumption; and to maintain our stewardship of wildlife, heritage and community assets. The estate must be resilient and adaptable to the risks posed by our changing climate, and able to make the transition to a low carbon footprint, so operational delivery can be sustained long term. Potential suppliers to the Ministry will be expected to be equally committed to and contribute positively to these objectives. An Industry Day will be held on 19.4.2013 at Redford Barracks, Edinburgh, prior to the formal submission of the PQQs.
