Multi-supplier Framework Agreement for Ground Investigation Works
The procurement comprises the establishment of a multi-supplier framework agreement (MFA) with a number of ground investigation contractors to carry out and report on ground investigation works of varying scope, complexity and value in connection with trunk road and other transport infrastructure schemes promoted by the Scottish Ministers through Transport Scotland. Once the MFA is concluded, individual ground investigation contracts can be called off by mini-competition or other procedures in accordance with the agreement.
The MFA is divided into 2 Lots by estimated value of the individual ground investigation call-off contracts.

Sites across Scotland, predominantly in connection with the trunk road network.
The Scottish Ministers acting through Transport Scotland have identified a continuing need for ground investigation works to support the development and delivery of trunk road and other transport infrastructure schemes throughout Scotland.
