SS17064 Road Asset Renewal Contract
Kent County Council’s current Resurfacing Contract (including major surfacing works that may include reconstruction of the highway) is due to expire on 30 June 2018. During the initial two-year term, the average spend of the contract was £9m per annum, but with a challenging forecast in public sector funding, it is highly likely this will be less in the future. That said, the client pursues every opportunity to secure additional resource to fund specific maintenance projects.
The contract will commence upon 1 July 2018 and will continue for a period of 30 months unless terminated in accordance with the Conditions of Contract attached in Schedule 3 of this Invitation to Tender. There is also a potential for a further contract extension of up to 2 years.
A Selection Questionnaire (SQ) is being released on 6 December 2017 and this will run until 10 January 2018. Only the SQ needs to be completed at this time. All other documents are provided for information purposes only in line with the Public Contract Regulations 2015.
Following the SQ, an ITT will be released in January 2017 and will run until February 2018. It is the Council’s intention to use a Competitive Procedure with Negotiation where the Negotiation period will take place in March 2018. The Council may award contracts on the basis of the initial tenders without negotiation.
If required, the Council will reduce the number of candidates invited to submit tenders using the criteria within the SQ. Between 3 and 6 bidders will be shortlisted to progress to the ITT. After initial tender submission, the Council may reduce the number of candidates invited to negotiate using the criteria within the Award Criteria.
Selection and Award Criteria
The Council shall base the award of this contract on the most economically advantageous tender with regard to price and quality. Full details can be found in the tender documentation.
