II.2)Quantity or scope of the contract

II.2.1)Total quantity or scope:

This framework agreement is one of four YORbuild2 Framework Agreements, set up primarily to serve the Yorkshire and Humber region (split geographically between North, East, South and West areas). The frameworks coverage also extends across a number of areas comprising of North East of England, Lincolnshire, and Nottinghamshire and Derbyshire as detailed within the Pre-Qualification Information Memorandum.
The YORbuild2 frameworks have been established to provide all public sector bodies (and their statutory successors and organisations created as a result of re-organisation or organisational changes) and third sector organisations in the area of coverage above with access to quality contractors under best practice partnering arrangements. Such access will be subject to approval by the Contracting Authority.
These public sector bodies include central government departments and their agencies, Non-Departmental Government Bodies, NHS bodies, Local Authorities (including County Councils, Unitary Authorities, District (Borough) Councils, Town Councils and Parish Councils), Registered Social Landlords (including Registered providers and Housing Associations) and any other category of Social Landlord, Local Authority Regulated companies (including Arms Length Management Organisations), Police Authorities, Fire Authorities (including fire and rescue authorities), other emergency services, Educational Establishments (including Schools maintained by a Local Authority, Academies, City Technology Colleges, the Learning and Skills Council, University Technical Colleges, University Purchasing Consortium, Further Education Establishments and Universities) and Registered Charities. The Framework may be used by non Public Sector organisations to comply with conditions associated with the use of public funds for those specific projects. (see also VI.3 Additional Information).
It is intended that the Framework Agreement will deliver a significant proportion of the civic estate construction programmes of these public sector bodies. It also allows Local Authorities the option of delivering their Social Housing building programmes. However, these public sector bodies do not guarantee to award a minimum or indeed any value of work through this Framework Agreement.
The Framework Agreement will initially be for a period of 4 years, but has an option to extend for a further 2 years (see II.2.2). For indicative purposes only the potential estimated workload through the Framework Agreement is 352 000 000 GBP and the works are divided into five lots broken down as shown below with the indicative estimated annual value for the potential workload:
— Lot 1 GBP 0-GBP 250 000 (South Yorkshire and the Sheffield City Region Local Enterprise Parternship (LEP) area), estimated GBP 5 000 000 p.a.
— Lot 2 over GBP 250 000 – GBP 1 000 000 (South Yorkshire and the Sheffield City Region LEP area), estimated GBP 8 000 000 p.a.
— Lot 3 over GBP 1 000 000-GBP 4 000 000 (South Yorkshire and the Sheffield City Region LEP area), estimated GBP 25 000 000 p.a.
— Lot 4 over GBP 4 000 000- GBP 10 000 000 (South Yorkshire, the Sheffield City Region LEP area and, for educational establishments only, the remaining areas within Nottinghamshire and Derbyshire, estimated GBP 30 000 000 p.a
— Lot 6 New Housing 1 to 10 units (South Yorkshire and the Sheffield City Region LEP area), GBP 20 000 000 p.a,
Estimated value excluding VAT:
Range: between 1 and 352 000 000 GBP

II.2.2)Information about options

Options: yes
Description of these options: The framework has an option to extend for a further period of 2 years to allow the appointed contractors adequate time to recoup their significant initial investment in establishing processes and procedures that will deliver the improvements that the clients are seeking through this framework. These include Economic Regeneration, Carbon and Waste Reduction, Training and Employment initiatives, training of their staff to new ways of working, BIM and New Models of Construction Procurement.
In addition there will be significant investment required from clients in undertaking the selection and evaluation process, and in particular the training of their staff and consultants to new ways of working. The partnering and collaborative working objectives that will form part of this framework may only be capable of being realised over longer periods of time than 4 years, not least because a number of Local Authorities may only start using this framework when their existing arrangements expire.
The Council will appoint three reserves to each lot of the agreement. This will not guarantee them any work to the detriment of those originally placed in that lot. Reserve(s) will only be invited to tender under the framework if there are insufficient numbers of Candidates in a lot with the necessary technical capability and capacity or satisfactory performance record to tender for a project for a competition to take place. There will be tight controls around the use of the Reserve(s) and it is intended that they will remain dormant unless one of the stated instances occurs. The Reserve(s) will compete on exactly the same terms as other YORbuild2 Candidates.
