Defence Infrastructure Organisation (DIO) intends to procure a multi-supplier Principal Support Provider Framework to deliver Construction Design, Project Management and Specialist Advisory Services in support of Capital Projects across its Overseas Estate and Operational Infrastructure Estate.
The Principal Support Providers will provide all necessary resource to deliver the framework across these two distinct estate areas and will, in respect of the Operational Infrastructure Estate, work closely with Military personnel both in the UK and deployed operational theatres.
The geographical scope will be (but not limited to) the following regions;
Cyprus, Gibraltar, Ascension Island, Falkland Islands – Permanent Joint Operating Bases (PJOBS)
Singapore, Kenya (BATUK), Belize (BATSUB), Brunei, Norway (Bardufoss) and
Middle East, the Far East and the Authorities Overseas Training Areas.
Nec3 Professional Services Contract (PSC) Option A with appropriate Z clauses will be utilised as this fits with the Authorities internal and wider requirements under the Government Construction Strategy (GCS).
The Authority has recently updated its procedures for delivering Capital Projects and works services through the development of an Integrated Projects Guide (which will supersede Volume 2, 3 and 4 of the current UK PSP Service Requirements) and the implementation of a Digital Plan of Work (Based on the RIBA Plan of Work 2013). Both of these documents will be available at the Industry Briefing Day.
This Principal Support Provider Framework will be used in conjunction with an Overseas Capital Works Construction Framework which will also use the Nec3 Form of Contract. The Authority will procure single projects up to a value of £50m (ex VAT)
The Principle Service Providers will support the Authorities wider requirements for delivery against the Government Soft Landings (GSL) policy and achieving Building Information Modelling (BIM) level’s through project delivery. This will be in line with any existing or expected mandate set by the Cabinet Office (Mandate GSL with BIM in 2016 for all Central Government Department Projects)
In connection with this procurement the Authority intends to hold an Industry Briefing Day on the 26 November 2015, to seek views and feedback on its proposals (in advance of the issue of the Pre Qualification Questionnaire (PQQ))
Attendance is currently restricted to two representatives from each organisation, this may change depending on response.
Deadline for Registration Friday 20th November 2015
