II.2.4)Description of the procurement:

UK Shared Business Services Ltd (UK SBS) on behalf of UK Research and Innovation (UKRI), wishes to establish a framework agreement for construction partner services for the Antarctic infrastructure modernisation programme (AIMP) future phases.

UK SBS is managing this procurement process in accordance with the Public Contracts Regulations 2015 (as may be amended from time to time) (the ‘Regulations’).

This is a works framework agreement being procured under the open OJEU procedure regulations.

The tender is for the procurement of a supplier to provide design and build support to BAS (the Client) in the delivery of a wide range of construction projects required to support BAS’ operations and science delivery at the five research stations. The framework agreement is for a period of 10 years. The contracting authority shall be UKRI.

The supplier shall be appointed under an NEC4 framework contract. Individual time charge orders and work orders will be contracted under suitable NEC contracts, for example PSSC for design works, and ECC for construction works.

UKRI/NERC/BAS have appointed a technical advisor (TA), Ramboll, on a 10 years framework agreement arrangement to provide technical, environmental, cost and commercial advisory services to the AIMP. The supplier will be working in a collaborative partnership with UKRI/NERC/BAS and the Technical Advisor (TA) to deliver the AIMP. There is no contractual relationship between the TA and the supplier.

The full scope of projects that shall be undertaken during the framework agreement period is not known, and therefore no guarantee can be given as to the actual amount or type of work that may be ordered during the framework contract period.

However, a series of potential projects have been identified and, subject to confirmation of funding, may require design and build services by the supplier. These include:

• Halley VI decommissioning and replacement;

• New build fuel storage (various locations);

• Rothera site services upgrade;
