II.2.4) Description of the procurement

This Prior Information Notice is not a call for competition. It is a call for market engagement ahead of formal procurement activities starting in 2022, which will be the subject of a further PIN notice.

The IDDP Contract(s) will likely consist of partners with a global and national reach, forming alliancing type arrangements to deliver an integrated organisation and programme, design development and project management / project controls scope during the identified contract period.

The MPDP Contract will likely consist of a partner with a local and national reach to deliver the RWM key permissions and consents relating to commencing site characterisation and borehole drilling activity.

The SCDP Contracts will likely consist of partners with a local and national reach to deliver the full scope surrounding the site characterisation projects across the various communities engaged on the GDF programme.

SCDP and IDDP share an alignment in scope, and therefore RWM wish to engage the market to understand how the interested parties can deliver these works with the most effective supply chain strategy.

The specific details of these works summarised above are detailed in the attached document to this PIN notice.

A GDF is a highly engineered facility constructed deep underground and will consist of a series of vaults and tunnels where radioactive waste can be disposed of safely, securely and permanently.

RWM will deliver this vital programme through a community consent-based process, working in close partnership with communities, building trust for the long-term and ensuring a GDF supports local interests and priorities (for more on GDF: https://www.gov.uk/guidance/why-underground).

The GDF Programme is split into six Tranches:

• Tranche 1 Policy formation and launch of the siting process (complete)

• Tranche 2 Community engagement and site evaluation project (plus other critical activities to prepare for Tranche 3)

• Tranche 3 The GDF Development Stage – the focus of this market engagement

• Tranche 4 Surface and subsurface construction and commissioning of first waste emplacement

• Tranche 5 Operations and ongoing underground development / construction

• Tranche 6 This tranche deals with the decommissioning and closure of the site after last waste emplacement (after +100 years of waste emplacement operations).

More detailed information for the Prior Information Notice can be viewed on the Sellafield Ltd (eu-supply.com) site or at UK Governments Find-A-Tender service, which can be viewed through the following link Find a Tender (find-tender.service.gov.uk)

RWM will hold the initial supply chain event on the 7th October 2021, the event will be ‘in person’ at the VOX venue, in Birmingham. Registration for the event opens on the 8th September and will close either when all the tickets are reserved (of which there are 200) or by the Friday 24th September (whichever is soonest)

Delegates will be limited to two from each company, although there is tick box on the registration site to request up to two additional spaces if the company can demonstrate capability aligned to the full scope under discussion during the event. RWM reserve the right to allocate spaces appropriate to the company capabilities and alignment to the supplier day scope.

RWM intends to hold market engagement sessions throughout Q4 2021 with industry experts and suppliers interested in potentially bidding for the resulting commercial agreement(s).

b. RWM intends to utilise a two-stage engagement process

Stage 1 will be an initial supplier event to explain the GDF programme and the role of the Integration and Design Development Partners (IDDP), the Major Permissions Delivery Partner (MPDP), and the Site Characterisation Delivery Partner (SCDP), and RWM aim to receive feedback from the market on key topic areas that are identified within section (h) below during the event.

c. If you wish to participate in the Stage 1 event (to be held on the 7th October 2021), please register your interest via the URL here:

d. Please note: “DO NOT” register interest in the Stage 1 event through any other route.

e. The aim of the Stage 1 event is to engage with the supply chain community to explain the following:

• Introduce RWM and the GDF programme,

• Provide an overview of the GDF programme (past and future)

• Explain our historical supply chain journey and the future path

• Portray our approach to the Major Permissions work during Tranche 3

• Articulate the Site Characterisation scope and requirements for Tranche 3

• Explain the supply chain requirements around working for RWM on this public sector programme

• Question and Answer sessions throughout the day from the supply chain to the RWM senior management team and executive

RWM will host breakout sessions to engage with the supply chain to debate and discuss topics relating to the integration, design development, permissions and site characterisation works plus future construction of the GDF programme. These breakout topics are outlined below:

· Work transition and integration of current contracted works into IDDP alliancing style framework

· IDDP roles & responsibilities, contract governance model, levels of delegation

· Organisational transition and cultural alignment challenges in moving to an alliancing arrangement

· Form of contract, incentivisation, pricing strategy concept discussion

· Major permissions risks, issues and challenges during Tranche 3

· Site characterisation risks, issues and challenges during Tranche 3

· GDF is a First of a Kind (FOAK) design programme challenges, risks and opportunities

· Design maturity (concept, preliminary and detailed) and its link to programme phasing

Stage 2 will be one-to-one engagements with the interested suppliers.
