Prior information notice
This notice is for prior information only
Section I: Contracting authority
Section II: Object
Interim Birmingham Highways Maintenance and Management Subcontract
Interim highways maintenance and management subcontract.
Following an EU regulated procurement process, Birmingham Highways Ltd (BHL, formerly Amey Birmingham Highways Ltd) was awarded a 25 year PFI contract by Birmingham City Council for the operation, rehabilitation and maintenance of its highway infrastructure. BHL entered into a subcontract with Amey LG Ltd (ALG) to deliver the project. After a restructuring of the project, the subcontract with ALG will terminate on 31.3.2020. A permanent 14 year replacement subcontract is intended to start in July 2021 but has not yet been procured and awarded. An interim subcontractor is therefore required to carry out the project between April 2020 and June 2021.
BHL is working to promote early engagement with suppliers and give BHL an indication of market capacity prior to commencement of a formal procurement process for the interim subcontract. Market testing meetings will be held between 6 and 20.9.2019, with a view to issuing a request for proposals and related procurement documentation to interested bidders by the end of September 2019.
The estimated total value of 85 000 000 GBP (excluding VAT) includes an estimated 50 000 000 GBP (excluding VAT) of capital works to be delivered by June 2021.
The Public Contracts Regulations 2015 do not apply to this subcontract as it will be awarded and entered into by a private sector entity (BHL) and not by a contracting authority.
An information memorandum providing further information is available free of charge at https://eqmanserv-my.sharepoint.com/:b:/g/personal/mmurray_equitix_co_uk/EW5usOzOG-dJpmPEwuf-vJYBYflboKQjvfn37EP9Tl8uSA?e=eg3Tg0
If you would like to take part in the market testing exercise, or wish to express interest in taking part in the ensuing procurement process, please contact Michael Murray at email@example.com
Please note that taking part in the market testing exercise is not a pre-condition to participating in the procurement for the interim subcontract or the longer term replacement subcontract.
BHL would request that persons interested in taking part in the market testing exercise submit a written response to the key themes identified in the memorandum of information by 04.00 pm on 6.9.2019 to inform the market testing.
