Regional Delivery Partnership — Technical Adviser — Supplier Information
Highways England has prepared a supplier information pack to provide a summary of the RDP Technical Adviser procurement solution. With this pack we would like to brief potential suppliers on the latest position in regards to our model and thinking.
Please see the document at the following weblink:
In addition we would like to obtain further feedback by Monday 1st July to the supplier questionnaire contained in the supplier information pack accessible via the weblink above.
The Regional Delivery Partnership (RDP) is Highways England’s approach to modernising our strategic road network across England. It will manage the 9 000 000 000 GBP road investment strategy working with suppliers to effectively and efficiently support 3 Highways England imperatives: safety; customer service; and delivery.
On 7.11.2018, we announced the names of 13 firms who became our Delivery Integration Partners (DIPs). The work is arranged into 18 packages of work, awarded to DIPs in bands of up to 100 000 000 GBP (Lots 1 to 3) and over 100 000 000 GBP (Lots 4 to 8).
A key element of the RDP to enable efficiencies via a programmatic and regional approach is the role of the Technical Advisers (TA). The TAs will be essential to releasing efficiencies and driving value for money, through their economic evaluation and engineering assurance and supervision.
The services will be provisioned in 2 tranches through existing and prospective procurement frameworks to align to the RIP delivery schedule and enable us to deliver the record investment in our roads (via Highways England’s Regional Investment Programme).
— CDF TA Services have been procured via CDF Lot 1 suppliers with the contract award in May 2019 and will support design assurance and construction supervision for schemes transitioning from CDF to RDP,
— RDP TA Services will support new RIS2 schemes throughout RP2 (programme of schemes starting at PCF Stage 1). RDP TA services will be procured via a new procurement solution to be tendered during summer 2019.
This PIN is not a call for competition and is not published to reduce time-limits for receipt of tenders. The RDP Technical Adviser procurement will be launched in due course by the publication of a contract notice(s). Not downloading, reading the Information Pack and answering the questionnaire shall not prevent any supplier from participating in any of the procurements.
