Surrey Fire and Rescue (SRFS) currently has a provision for contingency crewing to meet the service requirement under the fire and rescue and civil contingencies acts, for the provision of service during industrial action or due to degradation of capability. This current provision supports specialist capability delivery on a day to day to meet rescue requirements.
The current contract was a pilot scheme which was run as proof of concept. The pilot has been successful so now a tender is required for a modified version to incorporate Innovation, Income generation, Partnership Working, Value for Money and the expansion of the provision.
Please note that while we tendered for 3 lots: lot 1 — Business Continuity, lot 2 — Resilience and lot 3 — Specialist Rescue for a contract term of 2 + 1 + 1 years, this contract was awarded based on an alternative bid. Consequently lot 2 was not awarded, only a variant bid for lots 1 and 3 at a combined value of 680 000 GBP
Tenders are invited from interested parties for the delivery of the Smart Energy Network Demonstrator (SEND). This will cover both the design and construction of the SEND under a single-stage design and build contract.
Conceptually the SEND project will transform the University's current utilities infrastructure into a dual use system that operates to both supply energy and acts as a laboratory for research, development and innovation (RD&I) to support both business and academic driven research programmes and support new product, processes and services developments.
The SEND is part funded from the England European Regional Development Fund (ERDF) as part of the European Structural and Investment Funds Growth Programme 2014-2020 and the Department for Business, Energy and Industrial Strategy (BEIS).
The Keele University SEND will provide a real community based at-scale demonstrator, across multiple energy vectors, to support RD&I into smart, flexible energy supply, storage and monitoring to deliver improved energy security, reduce energy costs and reduce carbon emissions within a mixed environment and community. The purpose of this procurement is to appoint a Contractor to complete the final design, deliver the new and upgraded/refurbished utility infrastructure to enable demonstration, introduce and upgrade (to enable demonstration) the control system for the SEND, and oversee the introduction of procedural changes.
The SEND project has the following functional objectives:
* Basic Information Management,
* Basic Demand Side Management,
* Advanced metering infrastructure and heat load analysis,
* Integrated Energy Systems, Leveraging Advanced Information Management,
* Realising Micro-grids through advanced DER management,
* Unlocking low carbon transport potential,
* Introduce self-healing network characteristics.
The Prior Information Notice was published in OJEU in October 2016 and anticipated that the award criteria would be 60 % in respect of quality and 40 % in respect of cost. Following further consideration, the University has adjusted the weightings to 70 % for quality and 30 % for cost, given the critical importance of quality to the success of the SEND project.
The form of contract to be utilised will be the FIDIC Silver Book First Edition 1999 as will be amended by the University as specified in the procurement documents.
