Section IV: Procedure
Section VI: Complementary information
The Authority is holding a Market Information Day (MID) to engage contractors by explaining the opportunities associated with the works and invite views from interested contractors for the delivery of the ERF and associated works as set out in this PIN. It is planned that the MID will be held on 22.1.2020 in central London. The Authority will give a presentation on its proposals for the NLHPP and the works and the event will be broadcast simultaneously online. There will be an opportunity for attendees to ask the Authority questions and provide feedback on the proposals in open forum as well as opportunities for one-2-one sessions pre-arranged by the Authority before the MID. Interested contractors that would like to attend the MID should register by completing the attendance in person or via webcast and one-2-one meeting request form which will be available on the Authority’s website http://northlondonheatandpower.london/market-information-day-application-form/ (the Website). All completed forms must be submitted no later than 17.1.2020 at 16.59. The venue for those attending in person and access details for those attending online will be communicated to contractors that express an interest to attend. Following the event, the presentation will be made available on the Website and interested contractors (whether or not they attended the event) may send feedback and/or seek clarification on the Authority’s proposals for the works. Attendees will be sent a questionnaire after the event which will invite feedback on specific aspects of the works. The questionnaire will be available on the website. The deadline for providing feedback and asking questions is 31.1.2020 at 23.59. Written feedback provided by contractors will be treated as confidential by the Authority and will not be shared with other contractors. The Authority’s answers to questions, whether given at the MID or subsequently, will be collated and made available on the website with the contractor’s name redacted. If a contractor wishes the Authority to treat an answer to a written question as confidential, it must state this when asking the question. If, in the opinion of the Authority, the question is not confidential, the Authority will inform the contractor which will have an opportunity to withdraw it. If the question is not withdrawn, the answer will be made available on the Website. A list of companies attending the market information event (including contact details) will be included within the tender documents (subject to appropriate consent being received from attendees). The Authority intends to hold one or 2 further market information events and the date or dates will be notified through the website. Interested contractors should continue to monitor the website for updates on further market information events. If required, the Authority may request one-2-one meetings with contractors closer to the start of the procurement.
