The tender returns are due on the 14 August 2020. Following this tender interviews will be held and once appointed the winning contractor will be required to undergo a design period to finalise the works before contract agreement.

The tender will be weighted with Price at 70 % and Quality at 30 % with the successful contractor able to provide a full compliant bid capturing all works and tender deliverables. Failure to provide a compliant tender will result in a null and void tender submission. We will also consider an alternative tender submission as long as a compliant tender is provided.

II.2.11)Information about options
Options: yes
Description of options:

There is an option that all works outside the red line site boundary including the facilitating works described above could be undertaken by a third party in which case these works will be omitted from the scope of work of this tender. On this basis tenderers are requested to submit ‘Pricing Schedule Option 2’ and ‘Programme Option 2’ to reflect this. Tenderers should refer to Appendix B2 – Drawing Ref ‘101-RHA-01-GF-DR-A-0101_Site Plan Proposed — Works Boundary. This drawing clearly identifies the site boundaries noted above. Tenderers should note that in this scenario all works identified on this drawing would then be undertaken by an ‘Enabling Works Contractor’ and they should be excluded by the tenderer for Option 2. (Note the Pricing Schedule Option 2 has identified these works as excluded for clarity).

In summary the options are summarised as below:

Option 1 – All works including facilitating works — by contractor;

Option 2 – All works within the red line boundary (Drawing Ref ‘101-RHA-01-GF-DR-A-0101_Site Plan Proposed — Works Boundary) — by contractor. All works outside this red line boundary and the facilitating works — by others.

Tenderers are to note that within the employers requirements all works noted as ‘Enabling Works’ are to be priced in Option 1 and excluded in Option 2.
