II.2.4)Description of the procurement:

The MHA anticipate the total value of the schemes awarded through the framework will range from 160 000 000 GBP to 500 000 000 GBP. The value stated is based on experience on the previous two frameworks (MSF1 and MSF2) and the current estimated value of work from MHA members. The value of work through the framework continues to increase and the upper value has allowed sufficient capacity to account for increased investment in infrastructure.

Works will be undertaken within the administrative boundaries of the existing Midlands Highway Alliance (MHA) members (on behalf of the local authorities concerned or any other publicly funded body working in conjunction with the MHA members) or other such bodies located within or adjacent to the geographical Midlands area that become members of the MHA (or any successor organisation) during the currency of the framework.

For clarity, the existing local authority members are:

Leicestershire County Council; Barnsley Metropolitan District Council; Buckinghamshire County Council; Derby City Council; Derbyshire County Council; Doncaster Metropolitan Borough Council; Leicester City Council; Lincolnshire County Council; Milton Keynes Council; Northamptonshire County Council; Nottingham City Council; Nottinghamshire County Council; Oxfordshire County Council; Peterborough City Council; Rutland County Council; Rotherham Metropolitan Borough Council; Staffordshire County Council; City of Stoke on Trent Council; Wolverhampton City Council and Telford and Wrekin Council.

Discussions are in progress with the Midlands Service Improvement Group (MSIG) which may lead to a merger of the 2 organisations. MSIG members who may wish to access the framework if the merger happens are: Cheshire West and Chester Council; Cheshire East Council; Lancashire County Council; Herefordshire Council; Worcestershire County Council; Shropshire Council; Warwickshire County Council; Coventry and Sandwell Metropolitan Borough Council.
