411410-2012: UK-Blantyre: Construction-related services

Scottish Water is seeking to appoint two Alliance Partners to support the delivery of its future Quality & Standards IV (Q&S IV) capital investment programme for the regulatory period starting 2015. The two programme areas to be delivered by the Alliance Partners, will include Lot 1 Waste Water Infrastructure and Lot 2 Water Infrastructure and will cover, but not be limited to, civil engineering works and process works (including mechanical, electrical and instrumentation) as well as scope and change management, progress and performance reporting, quality management and commissioning. A more detailed description is given in the breakdown of lots in Annex B.
Project delivery is likely to be required prior to the start of the first regulatory period 2015 to 2021, and depending on the progress with the tender process, Scottish Water anticipates instructing work to be carried out before the start of the regulatory period and/or to provide services to assist the transition from the current programme and also transitioning into the next regulatory programme.
Although performance will be continually monitored there will be formal Price and Performance reviews undertaken, aligned with the Water Industry Commission for Scotland (WICS)'s three yearly investment reviews. Subject to satisfactory reviews during the first regulatory period the contract may then be extended at the sole discretion of Scottish Water into the next regulatory period.
The Alliance Partners are required to provide expertise, guidance, support and resources in design, planning, management and delivery of Waste Water Infrastructure and Water Infrastructure. This may include new assets, renewals, modification, maintenance, refurbishment and extensions to water networks, sewerage networks including UIDs and sewer rehabilitation works, and pumping stations. The works will include all civil engineering, process, mechanical, electrical, telemetry, control and instrumentation works as required.
An Alliance Partner can be a single entity or alternatively a delivery consortium made up of contractor(s) and/or design consultants. In the event of a delivery consortium, Scottish Water will require either a lead contractor and/or the contractors to accept joint and several liability.
In response to this OJEU Applicants can submit their note of interest as either a single entity and or as part of a delivery consortium. However at the PQQ submission stage Scottish Water will only accept submissions from Applicants either as a single entity or as part of a delivery consortium and not both. There is no restriction on the number of lots that can be applied for.
It is envisaged that between 4 to 6 Applicants per lot will be invited to tender.
Bidders day.
