Monitoring of Birds in the Environment.

JNCC Support Co. | Published April 4, 2017
cpvs
90700000

The primary objectives of the contract are: 1) to monitor most UK breeding bird populations, and to identify population trends, and the likely demographic mechanisms and environmental causes of these changes; 2) to assess and monitor passage and wintering water-bird populations at the site, country and UK level, and to identify population trends, and the probable reasons and causes of these; 3) to contribute to the fulfilment of the UK's national and international reporting obligations with respect to bird surveillance and monitoring; 4) to disseminate data and information collected to the public, conservation practitioners, governmental decision makers and others. II.1.6) Information about lots This contract is divided into lots: No II.1.7) Total value of the procurement Value excluding VAT: 1 857 450.00 GBP II.2) Description II.2.3) Place of performance NUTS code: UK Main site or place of performance: United Kingdom.

The scheme would not be possible without these volunteers, many of whom are loyal members of the charity, familiar with the transect routes and methodology, and skilled in bird identification and handling. BTO is the only supplier who can effectively mobilise their large network of volunteer bird recorders, which is essential to the successful running of the monitoring schemes. Whilst other Non Government Organisations may have large volunteer bases, BTO is the organisation with the largest volunteer base with skills and interest in recording birds. In addition, it is essential to the scheme to ensure continuity of the transects and sites that are already established in order to maintain scheme power and reduce bias caused by changing recorders. If coordination of transect recording was transferred to another organisation there would likely be issues with inconsistency of data collection, a very high risk of a reduction in sample size, and breaks in sampling of sites with a long data series. There would also be a substantial transition cost to build up a replacement network of volunteers. The contracting authority considers that there are no alternatives and that the supply of services can only be meet by a particular operator as detailed above for the following reasons: Competition is absent for technical reasons, and the protection of exclusive rights, including intellectual property rights. British Trust for Ornithology hold contact details of volunteer recorders which are protected under the Data Protection legislation, so there may be issues with sharing with an alternative operator.

The Thames Estuary Plan (TE2100) published in November 2012 followed 6 years of study and sets out the strategic direction for managing flood across the Thames estuary. It contains recommendations on what actions the Environment Agency and others will need to take to manage tidal flood risk through to the end of the century. Further information regarding TE2100 is available at: http://www.environment-agency.gov.uk/homeandleisure/floods/125045.aspx This Contract Notice relates to the first phase of TE2100 and is for the Thames Estuary Phase 1 programme (TEP1). The Environment Agency is seeking a long-term Delivery Partner for TEP1 to provide or arrange for the provision (either itself or through its supply chain) of partnering services and through these the provision and delivery (or the management of the provision or delivery through its supply chain) of a programme of capital investment and improvement works for flood defence assets (both fixed and active) across the Thames estuary over a period of up to 10 years (see also section II.2.2). Fixed assets includes flood protection walls and embankments and active assets includes flood barriers and other structures with moveable gates, outfalls and pumping stations. Working with the Environment Agency as part of an Integrated Delivery Team, it is anticipated that the Delivery Partner's role may include (but is not limited to): Management, design and delivery of capital works for fixed and active assets which may include (but is not limited to): — Asset replacement, refurbishment, and capital maintenance works; — Asset structural condition inspections and structural intrusive surveys; — Identification and prioritisation of capital works identified from the delivery partner's inspection and survey of fixed and active assets to be incorporated within the TEP1baseline works programme; — Construction engineering works; — Design and consultancy services; — Project appraisal services; — Engineering surveys and other investigations; — Environmental and engineering design of works; — Environmental assessment; — Design, construction and management of compensatory habitat creation schemes (at the Environment Agency's option); — Design and implementation of public amenity and environmental enhancements; — Soft landscaping implementation and maintenance (at the Environment Agency's option); — Asset management; — Programme and schedule management; — Project management; — Project execution; — Spend forecasting; — Supply chain management; — Commercial management; — Risk management; — Safety management; — Quality control; — Document and data management; and — Development of the forward programme beyond the 10 year programme. At the Environment Agency's option, the Delivery Partner may also be required to provide and deliver (or manage the provision and delivery through its supply chain) operation and maintenance services for the fixed and active capital assets falling within TEP1 which services are currently delivered by the Environment Agency in-house. The Environment Agency's requirements for such services will not be known at the commencement date of the contract but may emerge as the contract progresses. The Environment Agency may therefore have the option, but no obligation, to require the Delivery Partner to provide such services during the later years of the contract. It is anticipated that the form of contract between the Environment Agency and the Delivery Partner will be based on the NEC Term Services Contract with appropriate amendments to encompass the scope and nature of the Delivery Partner's role. Further details will be provided at the Invitation to Participate in Dialogue stage. It is anticipated that this will provide for the management and delivery of partnering services and a minimum scope of services, inspection and investigation works at the outset with separate task orders issued to the Delivery Partner for subsequent, approved packages of work in accordance with the Environment Agency's TEP1 programme of approved works. Further information regarding the scope of the TEP1 contract is set out in the Descriptive Document which accompanies the Pre-qualification questionnaire.

Project Title - Defining the components of marine ecosystems critical to ecosystem service generation This project aims to develop an operational description of ecosystem services delivered by the marine environment. In particular, to consider the spatial dimension of ecosystem services, both inshore and offshore, i.e. how marine ecosystem services generation is dependent upon the biotic or abiotic processes that occur across the matrix of different biotopes found in the United Kingdom’s marine environment. This is different to previous approaches which have mostly considered what ecosystem services are delivered by a particular habitat.

The principle aim of this project is to establish a population of B. subterraneus in the Dungeness area of Kent (where the last population was recorded) and provide sufficient habitat (through engagement with local farmers/ landowners and using agri-environment schemes incentives) for it to spread from here and form other self-sustaining populations. The project involves collecting queen bees from Sweden in early spring and, following the necessary quarantine period, releasing healthy queens at Dungeness, with subsequent monitoring of the released bees and public engagement work. This is a high profile and ambitious re-introduction project which has excellent local support and attracts considerable media interest.

The Geodesys business unit within Anglian Water is currently reviewing its strategy for the sourcing to replacement an end of life interface (server and storage infrastructure) and building on our current processes and systems, as well as consolidating our support package. This means we will be purchasing a solution and support package in a contract of up to 5 years. The project will be delivered over 2 phases: Phase 1 a) Server and storage replacement at Site 1. b) Server replacement and new storage installed at Site 2 with enough capacity to replicate from storage at Site 1 (old storage will still be receiving replication from Site 3). Phase 2 a) Server and storage replacement at Site 3 - potentially adding new blade servers into an existing chassis b) Increase storage capacity at Site 2 (if not already in Phase 1) Installation & Setup: a joint approach followed by Anglian Water & Associates IT staff will be trained and taken through the process. Common Interface: Currently infrastructure has a number of interfaces operating requiring separate agreements and skills for support. Operational best practice would be to achieve a common interface through this project creating cost efficiencies long term & greater system compatibility. Whilst replacing the existing equipment any proposed solution the minimum requirements must satisfy the following objectives: — Increase performance — Increase capacity for virtualisation — More cost effective future expansion — Move towards a common hardware estate — Increase the supportability of infrastructure — Increase resilience Current Environment The equipment to be replaced is spread across three locations: datacenter (Site 1) - 2x racks disaster recovery site (Site 2) – 1x rack main office (Site 3) - multiple rack availability There is currently a 10 Mbps point to point link between Site 1 and Site 3 which will be upgraded later in the year. Site 3 and Site 2 are connected by a 10Gbps fibre link. There is a mix of HP and Dell devices to be replaced. There is currently Dell EqualLogic SAN to SAN replication between the Site 1 and Site 2 and between Site 3 and Site 2. Blade servers are VMWare hosts and in each chassis we currently have a lower powered server acting as a vCenter server. Please note that at Site 2 there is only a single rack. As the phases are proposed below there is 19U of rackspace available for any solution. Storage Targets Site 1 - usable storage of 12TB Site 2 – to accommodate replication from both sites, usable storage would need to be 57TB Site 3 – usable storage of 45TB A real world performance of 3000 IOPS would be an acceptable increase in performance over our current environment in which we are achieving approximately 1000 IOPs.

Natural England is looking for ways to work with their suppliers to improve service and the environment whilst taking cost out of its operation. The supply of goods and services are a large part of our cost base and we are therefore pro-actively developing collaborative relationships with our suppliers through our Supplier Relationship Development Programme, so working together we can jointly reduce costs, improve the environment and performance. The aims of this study are to: I. Characterise the drainage pattern within the eastern part of the Marazion catchment. II. Quantify the sediment loading into the eastern side of Marazion Marsh SSSI/SPA and within the tributaries of the eastern part of the catchment to understand the scale and source of sediment to the site. III. Propose sediment loading targets to enable management action decisions to taken that will achieve favourable condition. IV. Produce a newsletter (no more than 4 sides of A4) interpreting the final report for local farmers and key stakeholders in the Marazion catchment. V. Deliver a 3 hour workshop to interpret the final report to local farmers and key stakeholders in the Marazion catchment. This may include a walk to highlight the key findings of the study. VI. Include in the final report the data from the previous APEM study 'A drainage network characterisation and sediment loading study of the Marazion Marsh catchment' APEM Ref 413074, February 2015 produced for Natural England on the western side of the catchment next to Marazion Marsh, to determine contributions of sediment from all inflows into the marsh and where the most significant sources are.

Defra procuring on behalf of Natural England: Through a programme of catchment appraisal and dissemination of farm advice based upon Catchment Sensitive Farming principles, this project aims to influence land management and nutrient management practices in the catchment to deliver the following key outcomes: 1. Protection of groundwater sources used for public water supply through a reduction in nitrate and pesticide loss to groundwater. 2. Delivery of favourable or recovering condition to Coastal and terrestrial SSSIs through a reduction in pollution load derived from diffuse sources. 3. Delivery of Water Framework Directive water quality objectives for ground and surface water bodies (inc. transitional and coastal waters) through a reduction in diffuse pollution pressure. 4. Integration with biodiversity and landscape enhancement objectives for the Isle of Wight to maximise benefit from agri-environment targeting.
