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. Tenderers will be invited to complete and submit a 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 ITT 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 works information adjustments if necessary.
3) The Contracting Authority will review any such adjustments received and may decide on the basis of some or all of these to issue revised works information and invite final tenders.
Following the supplier qualification stage, up to 5 applicants, who have scored the highest and who have met the required SQ technical threshold will receive an invitation to submit an initial tender. The objective criteria for SQ selection will be as detailed in the procurement documents. At initial tender stage, tenderers will be required to achieve a technical score of at least 65 % 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 2 tenderers go through to the commercial evaluation stage). The basis of any contract award will then be lowest price. The Contracting Authority can award a contract at the end of the initial tender stage or at the end of the final tender stage, if revised works information has been issued.
