Brunel University London (the ‘Authority’) intends to establish a multi-supplier framework agreement(‘Framework Agreement’) with up to 4 (four) consultants for the provision of mechanical, electrical and public health engineering services in connection with the (circa) 165 000 000 GBP campus capital projects programme (the ‘Programme’) which includes a new design engineering centre, a new learning and teaching centre and a new health sports centre, as well as a series of other smaller developments which form part of the Authority's wider estates campus strategy.
Please refer to the procurement documents for a list of the Services and further information relating to the Programme, the Authority's requirements and the procurement process.
The Framework Agreement will have a duration of three years and this period may be extended by the Authority(on one or more occasion) for any period of time up to a maximum cumulative total of 1 year from the expiry of the initial three year term. The Authority's decision as to whether to extend the initial three year term will depend on the progress being made on the Programme and whether it would be appropriate for the Framework Agreement to continue for a further period or periods of up to a maximum cumulative total of one year. Three months' written notice will be given to suppliers appointed to the Framework Agreement as to whether the initialterm will be extended, and if so, by how many months. Call-off contracts may extend beyond the life of the Framework Agreement.
The Authority envisages that the estimated spend under the Framework Agreement over the entire duration will be between 1 600 000 GBP (one million six hundred thousand pounds) and 3 000 000 GBP (three million pounds) exclusive of VAT.T The call-off contracts are expected to range in value from 1 000 GBP (one thousand pounds) to 800 000 GBP (eight hundred thousand pounds) exclusive of VAT.
This procurement will not be divided into lots as the Authority wants consistency and breadth by having the availability of suppliers who have all the different skills and areas of competence which allows greater flexibility to accommodate a variety of projects within the Framework Agreement.
The Authority has also procured and is still procuring other services connection with its Programme, including quantity surveying services, project management services and architectural services. The Authority will expect those appointed to the Framework Agreement pursuant to this procurement process to co-operate with and work in a collaborative relationship with the Authority and others engaged by the Authority to provide services in connection with the Programme and wider estates strategy. Further details are set out in the procurement documents (the Information Memorandum).
