Firms have started drawing up tenders for three major MOD facilities management contracts across England and Wales worth up to £4.35bn.

Up to six consortia have been shortlisted to work up bids for the trio of regional Prime deals following a programme of visits to key defence establishments.

During the last few weeks MoD estate procurement teams have escorted bidders to 28 of the 230 main establishments covered by the contracts, selected for their diversity and importance to military outputs.

Now firms will draw up bids to deliver maintenance and repairs to the built estate, with other services including a 24/7 helpdesk for estate-users. The contracts also include options for land management services and construction projects valued below £3.93m.

David McLaughlan, the Next Generation Estates Contracts senior commercial manager, said: “Good prime contractors need healthy, robust supply chain arrangements, which is why we will be exploring bidders’ plans in this area of development during this key stage in the procurement process.

“I would urge smaller businesses with innovative estate solutions to make their offering known to the bidders for these contracts as early as possible.”

The bidders will shortly be issued with a formal invitation to engage in ‘competitive negotiation’ as they develop their Regional Prime tenders.

They will also be invited to attend the Defence Academy at Shrivenham in early November for a conference on the service requirements, prior to submitting tenders in December 2012.

It is expected that the three contracts will be awarded by early 2014 and in service by mid 2014.
