£250m defence bidders to be cut in half

The Defence Infrastructure Organisation has begun the tendering process to cut ten shortlisted companies down to five winners for the first of its regional construction frameworks.

The Regional Capital Works Framework East Midlands and Eastern England will include up to five firms who will participate in ‘mini-competitions’ for the design and build of construction projects up to £12m.

Places on the framework will be awarded by August 2013 and run for an initial four-year period, with the potential to extend for up to three years with an estimated value of between £100m-£250m.

The firms  shortlisted for the framework back in September 2011 were:

Babcock Support Services

Henry Brothers (Magherafelt)

Interserve

Leadbitter

Lend Lease

Mansell

Morgan Sindall

Shepherd

Skanska

Vinci

Tenderers recently attended a conference at RAF Brampton focussed on the ongoing ‘Invitation to Tender’ process and the proposed operating model for the framework.

Each tender will be rigorously evaluated based on the company’s approach to commercial and technical matters such as supply chain management, quality assurance, sustainable development, health & safety, and issues relating to the Government Construction Strategy.

The tenderers have also been provided with a demonstration construction project and will be evaluated on their proposed approach to its delivery.

Jon Wooden, NGEC Capital Works Frameworks project manager, said: “The Defence estate is expected to undergo major change over the coming years – including across the eastern region and we are determined to find the best companies to meet the evolving requirements for capital works.

“The quality of our estate impacts on the effectiveness and morale of those living and working on it, so those companies winning projects via this framework will play a significant role in ensuring the best results for our Armed Forces.”

Alongside the East framework, it is expected that the short-listed companies for the National Capital Works Framework – for projects valued up to £50m – will be invited to tender later in the year.

Procurement plans for the other regional frameworks will be announced in due course.
