The authority intends to establish a sole supplier framework with a suitably qualified and experienced provider of programme, project and cost management services to support a portfolio of projects predominantly (but not exclusively) on Parliaments’ Northern Estate. Consisting of a unique built asset portfolio, the Northern Estate consists of a range of Grade I, II and II* listed buildings several of which require refurbishment due to, amongst other factors, the age and fragility of the buildings; the inadequacy of mechanical and electrical services; poor environmental performance; fire safety improvement requirements and otherwise. Services may also be required to support the Northern Estate Programme to develop additional space and facilities required for the House of Commons to decant from the Palace of Westminster, including an operational Chamber, Committee rooms and House support services. While the authority’s current preference is for a single point of responsibility model, it is willing to consider other models/constructs. The Services may include but not be limited to:
— health and safety and CDM advisory services,
— moves management,
— other similar or related construction project management services as may be required by the authority. Estate projects and programmes utilise the RIBA Plan of Work 2013; CIC Level 2 BIM and the NEC3/4 suite of contracts. The authority recognise that the estate programme of work will require an experienced and suitably skilled programme, project and cost management team capable of managing the scale, technical complexity, logistical complexity, heritage considerations and level of public scrutiny of the programme(s).
Full details provided in procurement documentation.
Section III: Legal, economic, financial and technical information
Section IV: Procedure
The Authority note this as the exceptional case in order to avoid re-procurement of critical enabling services that would cause the Authority disproportionate technical and operational challenge when the programme is at its peak. Additional justification is provided within procurement documentation.
Section VI: Complementary information
The Corporate Officer of the House of Lords and the Corporate Officer of the House of Commons acting jointly of the Houses of Parliament, London, SW1A 0AA, and in addition the delivery authority to be established pursuant to the Parliamentary Buildings (Restoration and Renewal) Bill 2017-19 are intending to award a sole supplier framework agreement for the provision of programme, project and cost management services. Potential suppliers should note that the authority is unable to accept a position where the successful programme, project and cost management services framework supplier can manage services or works provided by their own organisation or affiliates or certify payment for the same. It is accordingly the view of the authority that any contractor which is party to a works or service contract on the Northern Estate Programme or elsewhere on the parliamentary estate where such scenario exists would be conflicted, within the meaning of Regulation 58(17) of the Public Contracts Regulations, so as to negatively affect its performance of this contract and the corporate officers accordingly intend to exclude any such person from participating in this competition. This procurement does not replace the strategic estate framework for project management and cost management services [FWK1093] but does supersede the contract for programme, project and cost management awarded January 2017 [COM1273] which is being concluded in accordance within the terms of that contract.
