Section II: Object
Provision of Environmental Surveys and Consultancy.
United Utilities are currently undertaking market research and would be interested in talking to suppliers who are able to provide Services in line with the specification outlined within section II.2.4 of this notice. We will then use this information to help determine United Utilities overall approach and any future strategy in relation to procurement of Environmental Surveys and Consultancy Services.
Any subsequent Tender will be advertised at a later date via a separate notice.
Environmental Surveys and Consultancy Services are required by United Utilities to identify habitats and species that may be impacted as a result of works carried out by the company as well as Environmental Impact and Drought Permit/ Order Assessments. The reports prepared are also necessary as information to support acquisition of environmental consents from statutory environmental consultees and planning authorities as well as being compliant with environmental legislation.
We are looking for external parties made up of experienced qualified Ecologists, Planners and Landscape Architects to provide surveys as required and subsequent reports. Ecology surveys are required to identify habitats and species over both terrestrial and aquatic systems including river, coastal and reservoirs that may be impacted as a result of works carried out by United Utilities. The reports prepared are also necessary as information to support acquisition of environmental consents from statutory environmental consultees and planning authorities, as well as being compliant with environmental legislation prior to, during construction, operating works and owning land. The second objective is to identify external parties who are able to conduct Environmental Assessments including EIA and SEA as well as Drought Permit/ Order studies in order to prevent and mitigate potential impacts and produce reports available for use in the event of a drought permit/ order application, whilst also ensuring the company's legal, regulatory and licence obligations are met without compromise.
We would like to hear from suppliers with experience of one, few or all of the fields listed, who may be able to support United Utilities and who can provide case studies or references to demonstrate their capability in these area's be it directly or through a trusted subcontractor. Please note this is not a call for competition this is pre- market engagement whereby we wish to understand what is potentially on offer before we commit to any formal procurement process.
