Conservation Specialist Services Framework.
Introduction.
Cadw is the Welsh Government’s historic environment service working for an accessible and well-protected historic environment for Wales. It is part of the Welsh Government’s Housing, Regeneration and Heritage Department.
Our objectives: We conserve Wales’s heritage to the best possible standard. We have responsibility for some of the most significant sites in the world; We help sustain the distinctive character of Wales’s landscapes and towns; We help people understand and care about their place and history – and the place of Wales in the world; We make a real difference to people’s wellbeing in Wales.
Cadw works to conserve and protect the historic environment and to promote distinctive regeneration and sustainable development through heritage.
Cadw manages 128 monuments on behalf of Welsh Government Ministers. These range from prehistoric ritual and settlement sites, Roman forts and towns, ruins of medieval castles and abbeys, Renaissance houses and chapels to industrial complexes (see www.cadw.wales.gov.uk). They range in size from a single standing stone to large castles and abbeys. By providing access to these sites and using them as ‘showcases’ for the history of Wales, we aim to encourage people to explore and appreciate the historic environment.

Background.
The monuments take a great deal of care and special attention to detail to conserve and maintain. To assist in this Cadw wishes to appoint a range of companies (and/or consortia) and are structuring a series of Pan Wales framework agreements with work allocation/packages divided into lots.
Candidates will be chosen for inclusion on the framework agreements based on the most economically advantageous terms offered to the Welsh Government. This will include technical ability and quality to provide the required services and pricing proposals.
Companies expressing an interest must be able to evidence relevant experience of projects worked on in the historic environment sector and must be familiar with, and subscribe to, Cadw’s “Conservation Principles, Policies and Guidance for the Sustainable Management of the Historic Environment in Wales (2011)” document (available to download from http://cadw.wales.gov.uk/docs/cadw/publications/Conservation_Principles_EN.pdf). The Assembly Government, through Cadw, intends to apply these principles when undertaking work it carries out on sites in its ownership and care, and in considering applications which come before it for determination. Cadw also intends to apply these principles when contributing to future planning policy and guidance relating to the historic environment and programmes where it provides financial support. Other organizations and individuals in Wales are strongly encouraged to make use of them when considering changes that affect the historic environment.

The Welsh Government, on behalf of the Welsh Ministers, will be conducting this procurement exercise through the etenderwales portal https://etenderwales.bravosolution.co.uk Tender documents and other information must be downloaded from and returned through this portal. If you require any further assistance the BravoSolution helpdesk is available on:

Email: help@bravosolution.co.uk Phone: +44 8003684850/ Fax: +44 2070600480.

Full information in accessing the portal is found in Section VI.3.
Companies should note that these agreements will be available for use by other UK government departments and associated bodies with the prior written approval of the Welsh Government. For the avoidance of doubt, the Framework will also be available for use by all Welsh Public Sector organisations including those within the Health, Education, Local Authority and Assembly Government Sponsored Body (AGSB) sectors.
