The majority of the jetting work is planned in advance but occasionally it is required on a reactive basis at short notice.
Anglian Water will consider award to between two and four framework contractors who will work within Anglian Waters defined and established processes to meet operational performance targets.
45500000, 34923000, 45233294
The scope of the framework will include the following.
Design and operation of temporary traffic management measures in accordance with the Traffic Signs Manual 2009 Chapter 8 to support scheduled and reactive jetting operations,
Site survey and hazard identification,
Production of safety method statements, including site specific traffic management layout drawing and risk assessment,
Administering the noticing and coordination requirements of the Traffic Management Act 2004,
Advance letter drops (for road closures, etc),
Advance warning signs,
Fabrication of special traffic signs,
Portable traffic signal (set up and operate, set up and hire, hire only),
Stop/Go systems (set up and operate),
Call outs in normal working hours for installation of emergency traffic management measures,
Call outs outside normal working hours for installation of emergency traffic management measures,
Call outs outside normal working hours for maintenance of traffic management installations,
Portable variable message and vehicle actuated signs (set up and hire),
Road closure and diversionary signage (set up and hire, gateman),
Dual carriageway static lane closures (set up and operate).
The contractor will work with Anglian Water to produce traffic management deployment records for routinely visited site locations and to provide input to ensure the planned work is carried out efficiently and making best use of resources.
Traffic management is deployed based on weekly work schedules as issued by Anglian Waters Operations Coordinators some 1 to 3 months in advance, to allow sufficient time for TMA noticing. The contractor shall undertake all TMA noticing actions on behalf of AWS.
The core workload is support Anglian Waters own fleet of jetting vehicles, which is soon to be increased by 50 %. There is an annual outline programme to visit sites which require regular jetting. The total core workload is carried out during normal working hours, Monday to Saturday, and will involve approximately 400 crew.days per year, most commonly requiring 2 or 3 way portable traffic signals with operatives to set up, maintain and dismantle.
Reactive jetting is required on an ad hoc basis at additional sites or to increase the frequency at the known sites. Reactive jetting work has a target response time of 2 hours at any time and any location within the Anglian Water region. The contractor will be required to arrive on site within this timescale with all associated traffic management equipment on a 24/7/365 basis.
Anglian Water will also consider extending the framework to include the provision of traffic management services to its jetting & CCTV survey contractors and to other parts of the group, providing this procurement route proves to be the most economically advantageous solution. These options for widening the scope of the proposed framework are as follows.
It is estimated that approximately 60 % of the total jetting workload will be delivered in house. The remainder will be delivered by Anglian Waters jetting contractors. Providing traffic management services to these contractors could add a further 250 crew. days per year,
Traffic management is also currently procured via other contractors of Anglian Water for CCTV surveys. Providing traffic management services to these contractors could add a further 25 crew.days per year,
Traffic management is also currently procured via other contractors of Anglian Water for cover & frame replacements and other sewer repairs. This work is reactive, of which some 20 % is emergency response to attend site within 2 hours. The traffic management measures deployed for cover & frame replacements are typically of 1 day duration, and it is estimated that there are some 450 sites per year. Other sewer repairs typically take 5 days and it is estimated that there are some 200 sites per year. Providing traffic management services to these contractors could add a further 600 crew.days per year.
The forecast annual spend for the core workload is 150 000 GBP.
If the scope is further widened by traffic management to jetting & CCTV survey contractors, the total forecast annual spend is 250 000 GBP.
If the scope is further widened by traffic management to cover & frame replacements and other sewer repairs the total forecast annual spend is 550 000 GBP.
In order for significant efficiency savings to be realised, a minimum contract term of 3 years is proposed, with options to extend by two further periods of 1 year.
It is anticipated that contracts will be awarded to a minimum of two and a maximum of four suppliers to cover the Anglian Water Region.
Frameworks will be awarded across four geographic areas, namely Lincs, Ruthamford, Norfolk/Suffolk and Essex.
Estimated value excluding VAT
Range: between 450 000 and 1 650 000 GBP
