Section VI: Complementary information
The Crossrail Project Representative Contract will be between the successful Supplier and the Contracting Authority, not the Managing Agent.
Potential Providers are advised that the Contract for this will be via a Tripartite agreement between the Potential Provider and the Department for Transport and Transport for London( acting jointly as the Project Sponsor).
For the purposes of this OJEU publication we have listed the Department of Transport (one of the two contracting authorities) address but there are two. The second is Transport for London and their address is Transport for London and Transport for London, 42-50 Windsor Street, London SW1H 0TL.
This contracting model is further outlined in the Instructions to Tenders document Section 2 Introduction paragraphs 2.1 to 2.2.
Potential Providers are advised that the Transfer of Undertakings (Protection of Employment) Regulations 2006 (TUPE) may operate to transfer the contract of employment of employees currently providing P-Rep services from the incumbent provider to any new provider. The Crown Commercial Service will provide bidders with information obtained from the incumbent provider about the employees currently engaged in providing the P-Rep services in order to enable the Potential Providers to reflect this in their bids.
Potential Providers should note that, in accordance with the UK Government’s policies on transparency, Crown Commercial Service intends to publish the Invitation to Tender (ITT) document and the text of any Contract awarded, subject to possible redactions at the discretion of Crown Commercial Service.
Further information on transparency can be found at:
The Contracting Authority expressly reserves the right (i) not to award any Contract as a result of the procurement process commenced by publication of this notice; and (ii) to make whatever changes it may see fit to the content and structure of the tendering competition; and in no circumstances will the Contracting Authority be liable for any costs incurred by the candidates.
From 2.4.2014 the Government is introducing its new Government Security Classifications (GSC) classification scheme to replace the current Government Protective Marking Scheme (GPMS). A key aspect of this is the reduction in the number of security classifications used. All potential suppliers should make themselves aware of the changes as it may impact on this Requirement. The link below to the Gov.uk website provides information on the new GSC:
