The objective of this tender process is to establish a framework agreement to provide construction works to Wigan Council. The majority of the construction works to be undertaken will relate to school and educational buildings. The duration of the framework agreement will be 4 years. The framework will be split into 2 lots. Lot 1 will meet individual project requirements ranging in cost from GBP 250 000 to GBP 1 000 000. All contractors appointed to the framework agreement must be able to undertake projects to the upper project cost limit within the lot tendered for. It is intended to award places on each lot of the framework agreement to 8 contractors .Interested contractors will be able to apply for one or both lots. The anticipated total financial value of works to be put through this lot over the duration of the framework is estimated to be in the region of GBP 15 000 000, however this will be dependent on funds made available through Wigan Council's capital investment programme. Wigan Council does not guarantee any volumes or specific values of work to be placed under the framework. Individual contracts raised under the framework agreement can commence at any time after the commencement date of the framework. The construction work will be predominantly school build works however Wigan Council reserves the right to use the framework for other more general requirements when necessary. There will be potential for partner organisations or other areas of the Council to use the framework e.g. academies, the diocese, WLCT.

Each requirement for work identified requiring use of the framework will be tendered to all the suitable framework contractors in the form of mini competitions. The time limit set for responses will vary, but will take into account the complexity of requirements and time needed to prepare and submit responses in each case. Mini Competitions will include work based on a Project Partnering arrangement and/or Traditional tendering basis. The conditions of contract relevant to projects tendered under the terms of the framework shall be either a Standard Form of Partnering Agreement (PPC2000 ACA or similar) or a Standard JCT Form of Building Contract.

VII.2)Information about modifications
VII.2.1)Description of the modifications
Nature and extent of the modifications (with indication of possible earlier changes to the contract):

The framework agreement originally commenced on 17 April 2017 running for a period of 4 years. This has been extended for a further 12 months and will now expire on 16 April 2022. The original estimate of the financial value of the framework agreement was GBP 50 000 000 and it is estimated that an additional GBP 7 000 000 could be placed through the framework during the additional extension period.

VII.2.2)Reasons for modification
Need for modification brought about by circumstances which a diligent contracting authority/entity could not foresee (Art. 43(1)(c) of Directive 2014/23/EU, Art. 72(1)(c) of Directive 2014/24/EU, Art. 89(1)(c) of Directive 2014/25/EU)
Description of the circumstances which rendered the modification necessary and explanation of the unforeseen nature of these circumstances:

The extension to the framework agreement has been necessitated due to the impact of the Coronavirus pandemic which led to an unexpected re-allocation of staffing resource to support Wigan Council's response to the pandemic. It is considered that the Modification is permissible under Regulation 72(1)(c) of The Public Contracts Regulations 2015 in order to allow additional time to make arrangements for the procurement of a replacement framework agreement.

VII.2.3)Increase in price
Updated total contract value before the modifications (taking into account possible earlier contract modifications and price adaptions and, in the case of Directive 2014/23/EU, average inflation in the Member State concerned)
Value excluding VAT: 50 000 000.00 GBP
Total contract value after the modifications
Value excluding VAT: 57 000 000.00 GBP
