Section IV: Procedure
Highways England needs to accelerate implementation of its latest Asset Delivery (AD) model in Area 4 and will be terminating its existing contract for construction works in that Area on 1 November 2020. That contract is let to a joint venture, with Costain (who are the contractor under this contract) providing the construction works resource. The procurement of the replacement asset delivery solution for Area 4 (including construction works) which will be the scheme delivery framework is currently in development by Highways England, but this new contract will not be available until at least November 2021. This short-term contract let under Regulation 32(2)(b) of the Public Contracts Regulations 2015 bridges the gap of 12 months. As construction work will continue to be done by the Costain resource in this interim period this will significantly reduce the TUPE transfer of their staff to a new supplier, a process that could need to be repeated on the introduction of the scheme delivery framework.
