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

Low Level Waste Repository’s (LLWR) mission is to provide treatment and disposal services to the UK Low Level Radioactive Waste producers. To maintain the disposal facility, and progress optimisation and closure elements, a number of projects and asset care works have been identified to be completed by March 2018.
LLWR is aiming to place a single framework contract with one entity to deliver both multi-discipline engineering design support, from concept through to design, and construction of identified key projects on the Site.
Many of the proposed works need to be undertaken concurrently, but preceded by detailed design as to date, most of the proposed works are not fully detailed. Due to this workload, it has been identified that LLWR require support from the supply chain, but it is essential that an integrated approach is adopted due to the volume of works to be delivered within the constraints of the site and required timescale for delivery.
