Historic England is seeking to appoint a consultant to carry out a range of archaeological services on the Shrewsbury Flaxmill Maltings Project. It is envisaged that the archaeological consultancy services may cost around £50,000 over a five-year period, though the budget will be adapted according to circumstances and discoveries.
The Shrewsbury Flaxmill Maltings Project aims to restore and conserve a group of ‘at risk’ buildings on this unique and important industrial heritage site, including the World’s first iron framed building. The Grade 1 Main Mill has huge importance in the history of architecture and engineering and is undoubtedly of international significance while the site is exceptionally rich in social, economic and technological history.
If you require to make a site visit, this should take place on 29th November.
Parliament’s Audio and Video Programme will see an investment in new equipment, production and distribution methods as well as archive solutions to support improved services and access for Members, Parliamentary staff, media organisations and the public.
To deliver the programme, the services of expert project managers and technical and engineering consultants will be required, to assist in the detailed specification and management of a range of complex sound, vision and online media projects.
The Authority is working within budget constraints, and a continual need to deliver value for money. There is a driver to consider off-the-shelf solutions as the preferred options, and consultants must be able to advise on the state of the market, independent of manufacturer, or custom-built solutions. To support the programme, consultants may be required to produce options papers which identify a variety of appropriate solutions at different price points, in order to meet the constraints within which the Authority is operating.
Consultants who provide drafting or other advice when developing specifications should note that they will only be permitted to bid for the supplies contract if they can demonstrate clear segregation of information between the different sections of their organisation (i.e. have and maintain effective “Chinese walls”).
This notice is to set up a Dynamic Purchasing System (DPS) for sound and vision consultants. Individual contracts awarded under the DPS will be subject to further competition amongst those suppliers on the DPS.
