Scape are issuing this PIN for the purpose of pre-procurement market engagement, in line with UK Government Lean Sourcing guidelines, by engagement with the market through a Market Awareness Event, before the start of a formal procurement process for a Framework for construction works for which a separate Contract Notice will be issued. At the Market Awareness Event Scape will inform the market about their upcoming procurement and provide an opportunity to consult with and receive feedback from potential suppliers. In the formal procurement process to follow, applications will be invited from experienced suppliers of construction works who can provide high quality services using a customer focused approach particularly in the public sector. Scape will be open to receiving responses from consortia, joint ventures, strategic alliances and other such arrangements, however, we anticipate that we will require such organisations to form a single legal entity to contract with prior to the award of the contract and provide appropriate guarantees and security packages commensurate with such works/services. The works and services will comprise all types of building construction works and associated mechanical, electrical and services works and may include design and other services as required for a develop and construct or design and build works.

— education, housing, social care, leisure, libraries, blue light, health and social care, offices, transport, military, farms, recycling and waste centres, industrial and commercial buildings and other public sector operational buildings and establishments. At this stage Scape anticipate that a Single supplier/entity will be awarded the framework to provide All the required works and services at the conclusion of the procurement process themselves, through their supply chain or via a consortium/joint venture arrangement. The supplier/entity will be expected to work closely, and co-operate with public sector clients, in-house and external consultants, contractors and other partner providers. All contract performance will be monitored using a set of comprehensive performance indicators. It is currently envisaged that the framework will be for works ranging from 50 000 GBP and may extend up to 5 million GBP. The works value range for individual call off arrangements will be confirmed at the next stage of the procurement process. The Contract Notice will include the estimated total aggregate value during the life of the Framework, however indicative values are given in this PIN Notice. A series of financial tests will be applied to each potential supplier in the formal procurement process which will include a turnover test based on the anticipated value of the Framework. The minimum turnover level for a potential supplier will be confirmed in the Contract Notice but is anticipated that it will be in the order of 500 million GBP per annum.
