Tenderers remain responsible for all costs and expenses incurred by them or by any third party acting under instructions from the Tenderer in connection with taking part in this procurement, regardless of whether such costs arise as a direct or indirect consequence of any amendments made to the procurement documents by KUSBPL at any time.

KUSBPL reserves the right at any time to: i) reject any or all responses and to cancel or withdraw this procurement at any stage; ii) award a contract without prior notice; iii) change the basis, the procedures and the timescales set out or referred to within the procurement documents; iv) require a Tenderer to clarify any submissions in writing and/or provide additional information (failure to respond adequately may result in disqualification); v) terminate the procurement process; and vi) amend the terms and conditions of the selection and evaluation process.

Tenderers will be subject to a financial assessment to evidence that they have an acceptable level of financial standing to deliver a contract of the Smart Innovation Hub's size and complexity. As part of this assessment, Tenderers will be required to evidence that their average annual turnover over the previous three financial years was at least 25 000 000 GBP (noting that, where a Tenderer is bidding as a consortium, this threshold shall apply in the aggregate to the consortium members as a whole, provided that the lead consortium member's average annual turnover over the last three years meets or exceeds 70 % of the requirement).

In conjunction with the above, KUSBPL will undertake an N2 Check credit report in respect of the Tenderer. Tenderers may be excluded from the process where their N2 Check Risk Score is 40 or below out of 100.

The Smart Innovation Hub is part funded from the European Regional Development Fund (ERDF) as part of the European Structural and Investment Funds England Growth Programme 2014-2020, Staffordshire County Council, the University of Keele and the Department for Business, Energy and Industrial Strategy (BEIS) Single Local Growth Fund.

For the avoidance of doubt, the contract duration expressed in Section II.2.7 indicates the anticipated design and build programme of the Smart Innovation Hub only (ie 18 months). There will be defects obligations, followed by typical latent defects obligations on the Contractor (potentially lasting for up to 12 years following such ‘taking over’, in accordance with usual latent defects obligations under building contracts executed as deeds).
