II.2.4)Description of the procurement:


The framework covers both rapid responsive emergency works and specific planned maintenance work. LBH and the Consortium does not guarantee that any call-off contracts shall be issued under this framework agreement nor do they guarantee any volume of work which may be issued pursuant to such a framework agreement. Further, applicants shall note that appointment to the framework is not a guarantee of any work. LBH and the Consortium’s estimated range of value of the consideration the successful contractor may receive under any call-off contracts issued pursuant to the framework agreement is likely to be above the OJEU works contracts threshold. The maximum estimated value has been provided to cover all unforeseen eventualities that may arise to buildings requiring a complexity of works over a long period of time. However, it is unlikely the maximum value will be utilised. As such this procurement exercise is regulated by the Directive 2014/24/EU of the European Parliament and the UK Public Contracts Regulations 2015. LBH and the Consortium intend to carry out a two stage procurement exercise:

1) a selection questionnaire exercise followed by a shortlisting exercise; and

2) shortlisted tenderers will be invited to tender.

Applicants wishing to progress to tender stage must submit a completed selection questionnaire (SQ). The SQ is available from the project page on Londontenders.org

It is currently anticipated that the term shall commence on 1 April 2021. Applicants shall be aware that all dates in this advertisement are estimates only and LBH reserves the right to alter the tendering timetable at its discretion. LBH reserves the right to cancel the procurement and not to proceed with the framework agreement at any stage of the procurement process. Applicants shall be aware that members of the Consortium who leave it shall not be replaced.

The estimated value of this framework is GBP 4 000 000-GBP 50 000 000.
