Section IV: Procedure
Section VI: Complementary information
Parties interested in this event and wishing to access the procurement documents should confirm via email to the contact listed in I.1 their full details including:
— organisation name,
— a point of contact,
— email address,
— contact telephone number.
Cadent will arrange for access to the Ariba portal where full details of the event will be located including.
— pre-qualification documentation including the procurement timetable,
— draft RFP documentation. The full RFP pack will be released to tenderers who are successful at the PQQ stage of this event.
In order to access the procurement documents on the Ariba portal organisations will need to acknowledge to confidentiality requirements, including that they will submit a signed non-disclosure agreement with their PQQ return.
It is Cadent’s intention to award contracts to different tenderers for each lot. However, Cadent reserves the right to award a maximum of two (2) lots to a single tenderer.
In the event that a tenderer is scored highest across multiple lots Cadent will undertake a further assessment to determine the most suitable contract award allocation. This assessment will consider the most economically advantageous combination of lots and could involve a Cadent review considering these factors:
— resilience across networks,
— overall commercial position,
— supplier lot preference,
— variance from the highest scoring tender,
— any other criteria identified by Cadent exercising its discretion reasonably.
If tenderers are successful for multiple lots then each contract award and CMO will be treated as a separate contractor for the relevant network.
It is Cadent’s intention to ensure that there is sufficient competition within both each lot and across the four (4) lots being tendered throughout the tender process. In order to achieve this Cadent will shortlist from the PQQ based on the following principles:
— Cadent will invite a minimum of three (3) applicants per lot to progress through to the tender stage and submit an RfP response.
— Where an applicant is to be invited into more than one lot, Cadent will increase the number of applicants shortlisted so that in each lot there are at least three (3) applicants which are only invited in respect of that lot.
— The number of shortlisted applicants will be the same across all lots.
— The maximum number of shortlisted applicants per lot will be 12.
Cadent intends to run the LDP procurement processes in 2020. Further details are contained in the PQQ.
In order to preserve the independence of the CMO role, restrictions will be in place such that a contractor awarded a CMO contract in one lot pursuant to this opportunity will not be able to be awarded a place on an LDP framework for the same network. Certain rules apply to group applicants where members may be permitted to work on both client and delivery side depending on, for example their role in the team and subject in all cases to Cadent being satisfied that appropriate measures are or will be put in place to identify and remedy any actual or potential conflicts of interest between the roles, preserve confidentiality and ensure the independence of the CMO is not compromised. For the avoidance of doubt, organisations are not prevented or restricted from bidding for both this CMO opportunity or for and LDP role.
Further information can be found in the PQQ documents.
Applicants should note that TUPE may apply to this procurement, further details will be made available in the full RfP documents issued to applicants who are shortlisted following the PQQ process.
Cadent will be facilitating a Supplier Day on the 19.11.2019 for applicants who have been successful and shortlist at the PQQ stage of the event. Details will be release to applicants who are successful at PQQ w/c 11.11.2019.
Cadent will incorporate a minimum of 10 calendar days standstill period in accordance with Regulation 102 of the Utilities Contract Regulations 2016 prior to concluding the award of any contract pursuant to this notioce.
