Hackney and Newham.
See II.1.4) above in respect of scope of the works and please note the following:
1) The form of contract will be the NEC3 (as amended) Option A. The contract should be capable of acceptance without amendment but the 5 shortlisted tenderers will be invited to complete and submit the Contract Comments Schedule prior to submitting their initial tender. This will allow those tenderers to propose amendments without which they would be unwilling to submit an initial tender and/or which would significantly and adversely impact on the tenderer’s pricing proposal. The Contracting Authority will review all of the completed contract comments schedules in accordance with the process detailed in the draft invitation to tender and may issue an updated version of the contract. Acceptance of the contract terms and conditions at initial tender submission stage will be pass/fail;
2) Tenderers will be invited to submit an initial tender and will be able to include proposed scope qualifications if necessary;
3) The Contracting Authority will review any such qualifications received and may decide on the basis of some or all of these to issue revised works information and invite revised initial bids;
4) The Contracting Authority may also opt to include a negotiation stage and invite final tenders.
Following the supplier qualification stage, 5 applicants, who have met the required SQ technical threshold will receive an invitation to submit an initial tender (if several applicants are in 5th position with the same score, they will all be invited to tender). The objective criteria for SQ selection will be as detailed in the procurement documents. At ITT stage, tenderers will be required to be contractually compliant, to achieve a technical score of at least 65 % and to meet the minimum requirements stated in the instructions for tenderers in order to proceed to the commercial evaluation stage (note that the technical threshold will be lowered as described in the procurement documents, to ensure that a minimum of 3 tenderers go through to the commercial evaluation stage). The basis of any contract award will then be lowest price (if 2 tenderers both achieve the lowest price, the tenderer with the lowest price and the higher technical score will be the winning tenderer). The Contracting Authority can award a contract at initial tender, revised tender or at final tenders stages of the procurement process. If the Contracting Authority opts to invite final tenders, the number of tenderers who will be invited to participate in this final negotiation stage, will be a minimum of 3. Any decision to reduce the number of tenderers participating in the negotiation stage down to 3 will be based on lowest price. The technical and/or commercial content of the negotiation stage will be described in the invitation to negotiate document and explained in meetings.
Section III: Legal, economic, financial and technical information
As set out in the SQ pack, which forms part of the procurement documents.
The successful applicant will be required to be aware of and support the LLDC's Environmental Stability and Socio Economic Policies as detailed in the contract.
