The tender will include Early Contractor Involvement and follow the NEC3 contract.
The tender will consist of two stages:
— Stage 1 = Project Development — quality and price 70/30 = = 50 % of the overall score.
— Stage 2 = Final Design & Build- quality and price 40/60 = 50 % of the overall score.
Suppliers overall score will be calculated from the two constituent stages.
Suppliers need to submit compliant bids for both stages to be considered.
