The design included within the Works Information and that forms part of this tender is currently undergoing a technical review by Highways England and other technical representatives involved in the project. If there are any required changes to the Works information following these technical reviews these may become a subject covered as part of any negotiation phase within the procurement process, however such changes will not preclude the Authority from awarding on the basis of initial tenders. The Authority reserves the right to deal with any changes arising as part of the Contract in accordance with the NEC Compensation Event procedures and not through the procurement process.

The Authority is using the competitive process with negotiation. Based on the initial tenders the Authority may wish to engage further with tenderers through a structured negotiation phase to look at items including but not limited to changes to the scheme including possible de-scoping options or opportunities to value engineer the scheme as well as any possible ideas around innovation. However, SCC may choose (at its absolute discretion) to award a contract at initial tender stage to the most economically advantageous tenderer on the basis of the initial tenders alone. The timeline for delivery of the scheme is of critical importance and therefore bidders shall ensure they submit their best bid at the initial tender stage as (subject to its right negotiate) the Authority is looking to award at initial tender stage.

The value of 16 000 000,00 GBP indicated within this Contract Notice is an estimate only and cannot be relied upon as the total may change depending on the value of the successful bid as well as any compensation events arising over the life of the duration of the delivery of the scheme.
