Surrey Highway Maintenance, Construction and Design Related Services
Please note that this notice is published in addition to notice 2019/S 118-288658 to provide the correct weblink for expressions of interest described in Section II.2.14). Surrey County Council (SCC) is implementing an ambitious transformational programme to deliver a Community Vision for Surrey in 2030. We want our county's economy to be strong, vibrant and successful and Surrey to be a great place to live, work and learn. A place that capitalises on its location and natural assets, and where communities feel supported and people are able to support each other. Our ambitions for our place are:
— residents live in clean, safe and green communities, where people and organisations embrace their environmental responsibilities,
— journeys across the county are easier, more predictable and safer,
— everyone has a place they can call home, with appropriate housing for all,
— businesses in Surrey thrive,
— well connected communities, with effective infrastructure, that grow sustainably.
SCC is exploring options for delivery of highways maintenance, construction and design services and as such will be engaging directly with the market to further scope potential solutions. SCC wishes to consult organisations with relevant delivery experience to secure the views of market participants. This will assist SCC to identify preferred option(s) and in planning the future procurement procedures. The current timeline would see procurement start in autumn 2019. SCC may host a Market Discovery workshop in late July 2019. Organisations wishing to participate should submit an expression of interest via the SE Shared Services e-Sourcing Portal.
