Section II: Object
GoJ-GHE-T One Gov New Office Developer Partner
The Government of Jersey (‘GoJ’) is looking to procure, through a competitively negotiated procedure, a suitably-qualified developer partner (or consortium) to consolidate its existing office accommodation offering into a single site of approximately 11 000 m2 of commercial accommodation to house its 1 600 office-based personnel across the full suite of Government departments.
St Helier, Jersey.
As part of its One Government initiative (https://www.gov.je/Government/NewStatesStructure/Pages/AboutNewStatesStructure.aspx), GoJ is looking to build a single administrative headquarter of approximately 11 000 m2 NIA in Central St Helier, Jersey (the ‘Project’). The GoJ anticipates that the Project will promote better teamwork and collaboration across functions and departments which are currently spread across the GoJ's existing office portfolio (36 000 m2 in 21 locations).
GoJ is not bound by the Public Contracts Regulation 2015 (‘PCR 2015’) but recognises the UK and European standard and wishes to ensure confidence in GoJ's conduct of an open and transparent procurement process. GoJ is, therefore, conducting this procurement process akin to the competitive dialogue procedure set out at Regulation 30 of the PCR 2015. GoJ's requirements cannot be met without an adaptation of readily-available solutions so GoJ has opted for a process which will involve structured dialogue with participants in relation to their proposals. Up to 3 of the highest-scoring participants from the initial shortlisting stage will proceed to the next stage of the procurement where detailed solutions are developed through structured negotiation sessions with GoJ and its external advisers to drive the most economically-advantageous solution for GoJ.
Whilst further details and information are contained in the procurement documents available at: www.channelislandtenders.com high-level motivations for the Project are:
(a) a move from the existing broad street building which should facilitate significant savings once the lease expires in 2023;
(b) a reduction in floorspace required (currently an average of 13 m2 of space per person, which is more than twice the UK Government's Smart Working programme target density of up to 6 m2 per full time staff member); and
(c) cost savings in ongoing property revenue costs to GoJ in comparison to the costs of operation of GoJ's current portfolio.
GoJ invites the market to propose a suitable location on which the development may take place. This may be either:
(a) a site which is already owned by a participant or one which it is able to secure in order for the Project to be completed by GoJ's 4.9.2023 indicative delivery deadline; or
(b) a site already owned by GoJ which could either be redeveloped entirely or which is linked to another site.
GoJ has identified the following critical success factors for the Project:
(a) organisational alignment: the Project must reflect, enable and enhance delivery of the GoJ's strategic objectives;
(b) customer service: the Project must enhance the entire customer experience;
(c) people: the Project must improve the effectiveness of GoJ's people through a better working environment, improved health and well-being and through being accessible to all;
(d) affordability: the project must offer good value for money, be fundable and remain affordable throughout its whole life;
(e) portfolio efficiency: the Project must deliver property economy, environmental performance and efficiency and effectiveness benefits;
(f) socio-economic alignment: the Project must deliver benefits for the citizens of Jersey including social value;
(g) deliverability: the Project must be deliverable within St Helier;
(h) flexibility: the building must be sufficiently flexible to maximise resilience to future change and to protect the end asset value;
(i) cost: the Project must be developed within budget;
(j) quality: the Project must be of sufficient quality to support and help enable the objectives of the One Government initiative;
(k) time: the Project must be deliverable by the indicative delivery deadline to allow decanting of employees from existing premises at the end of lease terms;
(l) place making: the Project must ‘create a better place’ for all; and
(m) risk: the Project must have identified and considered those risks that could impact on project outcomes.
