II.1.5)Short description of the contract or purchase(s):

Magnox wish to establish regional frameworks for the provision of minor construction, infrastructure and enabling activities at our 10 sites across the UK. This procurement event will be split into 4 lots covering regional requirements.
The regions identified are:
Lot 2 – Wales (Wylfa and Trawsfynydd Sites);
Lot 3 – South West (Oldbury, Hinkley and Berkeley Sites and Berkeley centre);
Lot 4 South East (Dungeness, Bradwell and Sizewell Sites);
Lot 5 – Scotland (Hunterston and Chapelcross Sites).
These regional framework agreements will run in parallel with a national framework agreement (lot 1) which concerns construction and infrastructure major projects. It is anticipated that the lot 1 framework, which is not the subject of this Notice, will be placed in May 2012. All works covered under the scope and with a value under 250 000 GBP will be placed exclusively via regional lots.
Note: the employer reserves the right to compete projects within the regional lots and, where there is a compelling economic argument, between the regional lots.
In addition, the employer may, at its discretion, extend the value of projects which regional lot Suppliers may deliver up to a limit of 3 000 000 GBP.
The figures quoted in this section, may be adjusted over the life of the frameworks.
Economic Operators’ attention is drawn to the fact that the Wylfa Site (within lot 2) is currently undertaking a strategy review concerning its preferred method of procuring minor construction, infrastructure and enabling activities. This review may lead to the adoption, in whole or part, of the regional framework for the procurement of the Site’s requirements or to the adoption of alternative arrangements for some or all of the framework’s duration. It is anticipated that the invitation to tender for the regional frameworks will contain further information concerning the outcome of the strategy review.
