Range: between 55 000 000 and 150 000 000 GBP
The works will be largely delivered on the basis of the established partnering model, PPC 2000 (incorporating the 2008 amendments) and some items via TPC 2005.
45000000, 45331110, 45262700, 45262660, 45261900, 44221000, 45442110, 45331210, 45262650, 45251250, 45259300, 45261910, 45261920, 45000000, 45421151
The works will be predominately to housing blocks and to other assets held in the Housing Revenue Account (HRA), but may include works to non-HRA assets.
The envisaged scope of works will include, but is not necessarily limited to the following:-
Security front entrance doors;
Communal fire doors and other associated fire safety works;
Kitchen and bathroom replacements and renewals;
Individual boiler and central heating replacements;
Individual property and communal window renewal;
Damp remedial works;
Works to the external fabric and surrounding communal areas;
Repairs and replacement of water mains and supply including boosted water systems;
Maintenance and replacement of communal ventilation equipment;
Decoration and associated repairs to the exterior and internal communal areas of blocks and surrounding areas and within dwellings;
Internal and external thermal claddings to buildings including cavity wall insulation;
Installation and maintenance of district heating systems including combined heat and power systems and other energy efficiency measures;
Maintenance of communal boilers including repair and installation of pumps;
Testing and maintenance of dry risers;
Major remedial works to empty (void) properties and associated works
The planned programmes of works will be largely delivered on the basis of the established partnering model, PPC 2000 (incorporating the 2008 amendments).
The companion Term Partnering Contract (TPC) 2005 will also be used for delivery of some programmes of work, mainly when one off discrete items of work are required in contrast to planned programmes of replacements or renewals.
A two stage open book process will be applied in the establishment of the framework.
The appointment of three main Framework Contractors with their own supply chain will constitute the first stage. The framework agreements entered into with the three Contractors will govern the letting of the call off contracts for the works. Call-offs will be made throughout the life of the framework agreements, including during the final year.
The second stage will involve the benchmarking of the tendered rates of the appointed Framework Contractors. This will be in order to achieve and demonstrate continuing best value throughout the contract term. The Authority wishes to build upon the joint-working and supply chain initiatives that have been developed as part of the Supply Chain Management Consortium model, requiring participants to be forward-thinking, innovative, open, honest and willing to share information, most significantly in relation to their supply chain and pricing. That approach will be essential to establishing successful long term relationships.
The appointed Tier 1 Framework Contractors will be completely contractually responsible for the assembly and management of commonly agreed multi-disciplinary supply chains comprising Tier 2 and 3 supply chain Contractors throughout the framework term. The Authority will, however, maintain performance and quality monitoring of the supply chain, working to a common price and common conditions, through a strategic alliance between the Contractors and the Authority with Hackney Homes acting as client representative for the Authority.
It is envisaged that at least 50% of the works will be allocated to the tenderer submitting the most economically advantageous bid, but with flexibility to reallocate works according to performance and other client-contingent factors.
It is estimated that the total value over the four year period of the framework will be between 55 000 000 GBP and 150 000 000 GBP. The values of the various workstream elements have been set out in a table within the pre qualification questionnaire
There is no guarantee of any minimum level of works either in aggregate or across any particular workstream.
TUPE may apply across a number of workstreams.
The Authority reserves the right not to award a framework agreement or contract or to award (a) framework agreement(s) and/or contract(s) for part or parts of the works only.
Section III: Legal, economic, financial and technical information
Description of particular conditions: Under this programme the Contractors (and their supply chain partners) will be required to actively participate in the achievement of social, economic and/or environmental policy objectives relating to recruitment, training and supply chain initiatives. Accordingly, contract performance conditions may relate in particular to social, economic and environmental considerations.
Further information will be provided at a Bidders day to be held on the 17th September 2013, to which organisations submitting an expression of interest and prospective supply chain partners will be invited.
Minimum level(s) of standards possibly required: Contractors will be required to demonstrate minimum levels of financial capacity and stability consistent with the successful procurement and management of diverse multi-million improvement and maintenance programmes including the direct management of diverse supply chains in accordance with Hackney Homes’ key drivers of programming, coordination, supervision, delivery and outcomes. Full requirements will be set out in the Pre-Qualification Questionnaire and may include but not necessarily be limited to provision of financial turnover and accounts and professional indemnity cover.
Contractors will be required to complete a Pre-Qualification Questionnaire consistent with the provision of Directive 2004/18/EC and Regulation 25 of the UK Public Contracts Regulations 2006 (S.I. 2006:5). The Pre-Qualification Questionnaire is available from the address set out at section I above and must be returned by the date anticipated in section IV.3.4.
Minimum level(s) of standards possibly required:
Contractors will be required to demonstrate the technical capacity to procure and manage diverse multi-million multi-year improvement and maintenance programmes, including the direct management of diverse supply chains in accordance with the key drivers of programming, coordination, supervision, delivery and achievement of outcomes.
The Pre-Qualification Questionnaire will set out the full requirements but will include, but not be limited, to:
An evidenced track record of successfully delivering multi-million pound refurbishment programmes through the management of diverse supply chains, ideally, under a recognised construction partnering delivery model such as PPC 2000.
