UK Asset Resolution Ltd (UKAR) is nearing completion of its objective of returning the UK taxpayers’ investment in NRAM Ltd (NRAM) and Bradford and Bingley plc (B&B) to the private sector. One option is to sell the NRAM and B&B legal entities, leaving UKAR in public ownership.
UKAR is seeking to establish a single supplier contract to outsource all aspects of the running of its remaining business, with the exception of board and company secretarial functions.
UKAR is therefore seeking to establish a single supplier contract to outsource all aspects of the running of its remaining business, with the exception of board and company secretarial functions.
UKAR will be responsible for meeting contractual obligations to the buyer of B&B and NRAM, a range of liabilities relating to previous asset sales, sponsoring the legacy defined benefit pension schemes and administering other non-loan assets and liabilities.
The scope of the contract requires the provision of claims management services and the outsourcing of business administration activities required to run the business, such as management reporting, stakeholder management and other miscellaneous activities (such as, potentially, residual pension management responsibilities). It also involves the planning and management of the transition to the new arrangements.
The contract will be awarded for an initial term of five (5) years, with an option to extend for three (3) further periods of twenty four (24) consecutive months. Any extension will be exercised at the discretion of UKAR.
Please refer to procurement documents.
The value provided at Section II.1.5 and Section II.2.6 is only an estimate. Actual contract spend will be dependent on activity under the contract.

Afdeling IV: Procedure
Afdeling VI: Aanvullende inlichtingen
This procurement is being hosted by CCS, on behalf of UKAR, throughout the procurement process. The procurement will be managed electronically via the CCS eSourcing suite (the Bravo Portal). To participate in this procurement, participants must first be registered on the Bravo Portal.
Registering for access:
The BravoSolution eSourcing tool (the “Bravo Portal”) will be the route for sharing all information and communicating with UKAR. If you have recently registered on the Bravo Portal for another CCS procurement you can use the same account for this new procurement. If not, you will first need to register your organisation on the portal.
To register, you will need to:
1) Go to the URL: https://crowncommercialservice.bravosolution.co.uk.
2) Select the link “I am a new supplier user";
3) Read and agree to the portal user agreement;
4) Complete the registration form, providing information including:
— the full legal name of your organisation,
— your company registration number,
— your DUNS number — a unique 9-digit number provided to organisations free of charge by Dun and Bradstreet,
— user and contact details.
Note: If you require additional users from your organisation to see the bidder information pack, do not repeat the above process as this will create a new separate organisation account; instead the registered user can add additional users to the existing supplier organisation account via “User Management” > “Manage Users” > “Users” > “Create".
For assistance please contact the eSourcing Help-desk operated by BravoSolution by email at email@example.com, or call 0800 069 8630.

Once UKAR has received the bidder’s signed NDA, CCS will arrange for the bidder to be sent an invitation to access the bidder information pack via the Bravo Portal.
