DIO announces shortlisted bidders for construction frameworks

The Defence Infrastructure Organisation (DIO) has announced two shortlists of 12 bidders each of whom have expressed interest in bidding for a range of construction projects as part of the South East and the South West Capital Works Frameworks.

These frameworks are two of seven Capital Works Frameworks under DIO’s Next Generation of Estate Contracts (NGEC) programme and will be used for the design and build of MOD construction projects individually valued up to £12 million. Projects valued up to £50 million will be procured through the National Capital Works Framework, which operates alongside the Regional Frameworks.

The total estimated value of the South East Framework is up to £250 million and the South West Framework is up to £400 million. They can be used at any site within the framework boundaries across the south of England.

During the evaluation process the NGEC team rigorously assessed individual bidders’ responses to the pre-qualification questionnaire (PQQ) to establish their capability and capacity, which included quality assurance, technical, environmental management, health and safety, financial standing and equal opportunity and diversity criteria.  

John Jones, the Frameworks project manager, said:

“On this occasion we ran both competitions concurrently and received a total of 46 valid submissions as part of the PQQ process. The competition was strong and the bidders faced a rigorous evaluation process to be able to go forward to the tender stage.

“The shortlisted bidders have one final opportunity to demonstrate their ability to compete for and deliver future build and design projects across the defence estate as part of the South East and the South West England Capital Works Frameworks. We positively encourage smaller suppliers and subcontractors to approach shortlisted bidders about their products and services by accessing the bidders’ directory online.”

Later this week the shortlisted bidders will be invited to submit tenders in order to finalise the list of four or five companies for inclusion on each of the South East Capital Works Framework and the South West Capital Works Framework. The contracts are due to be awarded in summer 2015 and each will run for an initial four year period, with the potential to extend for up to three years.

As part of this process, bidders will be evaluated on a range of commercial and technical matters, ranging from supply chain management to issues relating to the Government Construction Strategy. They will also be provided with an example of a construction project the MOD may require to be delivered through the frameworks, and bidders will be evaluated on their approach to its delivery.

The bidders have been invited to attend a conference at RAF Wyton on 26 November 2014 where delegates will be taken through the tendering process and have explained any applicable MOD statutory requirements associated with the Framework.

The NGEC Framework procurement process offers an opportunity for small and medium sized enterprises (SMEs) to identify potential supply chain and subcontracting opportunities through the “Bidders Directory” which will soon be published on the NGEC website at:
