Utilities & telecoms tenders

In the UK, there are 11 water and sewerage companies (plus 6 water-only), 4 Gas Distribution Networks (GDNs), 7 major District Network Operators (DNOs), and a number of smaller buyers subject to Utilities Contracts Regulations (2016). As such, there is no shortage of opportunities in this critical industry. Contracts are often cyclical, aligned to the regulatory periods and providing opportunities for long-term contracts with high contract values attracting stiff competition. This also means that incumbents can be harder to displace and so putting together a polished proposal of a high standard is essential.

Gateline Supply and Maintenance Agreement
UK York NORTHERN TRAINS LIMITED

Northern Trains Limited (NTL), the "Utility", a Train Operating Company (TOC) that operates passenger rail services across the North of England, is undertaking this procurement process on behalf of a number of "Contracting Utilities" including Train Operating Companies in Great Britain, Network Rail, and a number of Local Transport Authorities. The requirement comprises a framework agreement for the supply and maintenance of Gateline Infrastructure that will enable members of the travelling public to access rail services at stations and other designated locations. The services include: a)Supply of New Gateline infrastructure, including the mechanical components required to control passenger access to designated areas; bank-card readers that possess the necessary certification for compliant use; ITSO card and bar-code readers; b)Installation and Commissioning Services - of Gateline Infrastructure including any required sourcing and supply arrangements, planning, permissions, civils works, connection to all systems and networks, testing and commissioning compliant with all rail industry and other required compliance requirements and standards. An option to decommission Gateline Infrastructure is included within these services; c)The option for Upgrades to existing Gateline components - as may be required so that existing infrastructure or components may be updated and improved to reflect latest functionality and standards; d)Maintenance and Operation - including Device Management to enable the operation of both new and updated Gateline Infrastructure to effective operational levels, providing an acceptable level of service to the public; and e)Demonstrable delivery of Social Value The key objective of the procurement is to establish a framework agreement with a single economic operator that will enable NTL "the Utility" (and the other Contracting Utilities listed on this notice) to enter into their own respective Agreements under the framework following conclusion of the procurement exercise. The nature of the Gateline Supply and Maintenance Agreement is that both supply, works and services will be 'called-off' by the Utility and Contracting Utilities in accordance with their specific requirements following contract award and in accordance with a 'call-off' procedure that will be subject to negotiation during the procurement process. The value of the Gateline Supply and Maintenance Agreement will therefore depend upon the level of subscription to the framework, however the estimated value is based upon supply and commissioning of 500 Gateline Infrastructure components and their operation and maintenance over the initial contract term and two extension periods. Northern Trains (NTL) has chosen to run the procurement under the negotiated procedure with a prior call for competition under Regulation 47 of the Utilities Contract Regulations 2016. Given the subject matter of the framework agreement and the exceptional circumstances that apply in respect of award of a contract to single economic operator and proprietary nature of maintenance and operation obligations, the term of the agreement will exceed 8 years as set out in Clause 51(3) of the Utilities Contracts Regulations 2016. The contract term for the Gateline Supply and Maintenance Agreement is consequently a five-year initial term with two options for further 5-year extensions.

Strategic Resource Options: Programme Partners (PP) Framework

II.2.4) Description of the procurement:(nature and quantity of works, supplies or services or indication of needs and requirements; for supplies only - state whether tenders are requested for purchase, lease, rental, hire purchase or any combination of those)Thames Water Utilities Ltd (TWUL) Strategic Resource Options (SRO) - Programme Partners (PP) Framework TWUL's current portfolio of SRO projects includes, but is not limited to, the Southeast Strategic Reservoir Option (SESRO), Severn to Thames Transfer (STT), London Water Recycling (LWR) projects, Thames to Affinity Transfer (T2AT) and Thames to Southern Transfer (T2ST). Further information, including RAPID Gate 1 and 2 reports, can be found on this link: https://www.ofwat.gov.uk/regulated-companies/rapid/the-rapid-gated-process/TWUL intends to establish a PP Framework primarily to support its SRO Program. This is the first phase of a longer-term procurement strategy to establish the professional services supply chain that TWUL needs to support its wider business. This procurement is for the PP Framework only and relates to Phase 1 of the procurement strategy. Existing TWUL professional services frameworks are not impacted by the procurements outlined in this notice.The successful tenderers will interface with several other partners that will be procured separately to support the SRO Programme as it develops. TWUL are looking for leading expertise within the key disciplines outlined below to accelerate the delivery and management of this high-profile programme. The PP will need to demonstrate extensive experience in programme management to enable it to support and management across the SRO portfolio which will include large complex infrastructure schemes being progressed under the current UK planning environment. The PP role includes being able to provide strong leadership, excellent technical capability, and proven expertise in supporting Clients and managing programmes of work (in this case the delivery of large pipelines, reservoirs, water recycling and transfer facilities). Furthermore, the PP will need to provide programme management and controls expertise to oversee and advise up all aspects of preliminary design and the pre application engagement with the Planning Inspectorate and to assist with the development / management of planning applications (likely to be a Development Consent Order (DCO)) including assisting with stakeholder engagement and all elements of the pre consultation and planning application processes. The PP framework agreement will be awarded under the NEC4 Professional Services Contract Option E with amendments. Provision will be made in the call-off contracts for utilisation of Option A, C and E. TWUL intends to award the first work package from the PP framework agreement immediately following the appointment of framework suppliers. It is our intention that appointment as a Programme Partner to one or multiple SRO projects will be for the duration of that particular scheme. This approach is due to the complexity and phasing of projects within the SRO programme. The risk of disruption and inefficiency that would be caused through multiple handovers between Programme Partners during a project is high and would be sub optimal for TWUL. Our intention is that the parties to the framework compete for the role of Programme Partner via an initial mini competition and that subject to the successful party's performance, capability and capacity, it will remain the Programme Partner for the scope of services that was competed.Sufficient information will be included in the mini-competition tender pack to enable bidders to prepare solutions for the potential services that may be required by TWUL. The scope of initial mini competitions will be construed widely to enable our approach and all parties wishing to compete will have the appropriate opportunity to seek clarification on the breadth, depth and

Strategic Resource Options: Technical Partners (TP) Framework
UK Reading Thames Water Utilities Limited

Thames Water Utilities Ltd (TWUL) Strategic Resource Options (SRO) - Technical Partners (TP) Framework TWUL's current portfolio of SRO projects includes, but is not limited to, the Southeast Strategic Reservoir Option (SESRO), Severn to Thames Transfer (STT), London Water Recycling (LWR) projects, Thames to Affinity Transfer (T2AT) and Thames to Southern Transfer (T2ST). Further information, including RAPID Gate 1 and 2 reports, can be found on this link: https://www.ofwat.gov.uk/regulated-companies/rapid/the-rapid-gated-process/TWUL intends to establish a TP framework primarily to support its SRO program. This is the first phase of a longer-term procurement strategy to establish the professional services supply chain that TWUL needs to support its wider business. This procurement is for the TP Framework only and relates to Phase 1 of the strategy. Existing TWUL professional services frameworks are not impacted by the procurements outlined in this notice.The successful tenderers will interface with several other partners that will be procured separately to support the SRO Programme as it develops. TWUL are looking for leading expertise within the key disciplines outlined below to accelerate the delivery of this high-profile programme. The TP will need to demonstrate extensive experience in the development and support the delivery of large complex infrastructure schemes in the current UK planning environment. This includes being able to provide strong leadership, excellent technical capability, and proven expertise in supporting the delivery of large pipelines, reservoirs, water recycling and transfer facilities. Furthermore, the TP will need to provide technical expertise to manage all aspects of preliminary design and managing the pre application engagement with the Planning Inspectorate and develop/manage the planning application (likely to be a Development Consent Order (DCO)) including stakeholder engagement and all elements of the pre consultation and planning application processes. The TP framework agreement will be awarded under the NEC4 Professional Services Contract Option E with amendments. Provision will be made in the call-off contracts for utilisation of Option A, C and E. TWUL intends to award the first work package from the TP framework agreement immediately following the appointment of framework suppliers. It is our intention that appointment as a technical partner to one or multiple SRO projects will be for the duration of that particular project. This approach is due to the complexity and phasing of projects within the SRO programme. The risk of disruption and inefficiency that would be caused through multiple handovers between Technical Partners during a project is high and would be sub optimal for TWUL. Our intention is that the parties to the framework compete for the role of TP for a specific project via an initial mini competition and that subject to performance, capability and capacity, the successful party will be the technical partner for the duration of the particular project.Sufficient information will be included in the mini-competition tender pack to enable bidders to prepare solutions for the potential services that may be required by TWUL. The scope of initial mini competitions will be construed widely to enable our approach and all parties wishing to compete will have the appropriate opportunity to seek clarification on the breadth, depth and operation of the resulting call off contract(s). The duration of the TP framework will be up to 8 years and is required to support a regulated delivery schedule. It is intended that the successful TP at call-off will cover the development phase into the mobilisation of the future Delivery Partner(s) in the detailed design and construction phase.The TP framework scope is likely to comprise of, but is not limited to, the following high level service categories:• General Technical Partner Suppo

Interested persons should access the procurement documents and must complete and submit the PQQ by the deadline stated IV.2.2 to be eligible to be shortlisted and invited to tender. The shortlisting rules are set out in the PQQ. Please email SIProcurement@nationalgrid.com if you do not have existing ARIBA access. The procurement documents (see I.3) also include a partner guide (summarising the opportunity) and a contract principles paper (describing the Enterprise Agreement and including a scope summary): these will be made available when a signed confidentiality agreement has been returned. All financial values stated in this notice are calculated using current prices plus assumed inflation based on RPI forecast rates to 2032. All of these values are estimates only and the final outturn values will depend on the precise works and services required to be delivered, the means of delivery, the way in which programme and project risks materialise, the actual rates of inflation up to completion of the programme, and other factors. Details of the scale of this opportunity are also set out in the previous notices (see IV.2.1). The precise details of each identified project, including specific location, route, form of electricity network infrastructure (such as OHL or underground cable), construction methodology, and any associated mitigation or enhancement schemes are indicative and remain to be confirmed. The final project details are subject to NGET obtaining all necessary consents (such as any required DCO, Electricity Act 1989 consent or planning permission), the requirements of those consents, and the terms of any necessary land rights to be secured by NGET to enable project delivery. NGET gives no commitment as to the basis on which any necessary consents or land rights will be applied for, or obtained. In January 2023, NGET conducted a pre-procurement market engagement exercise through which feedback was sought from the market in respect of its proposals. Interested organisations submitted written responses to questions contained in a market engagement document. This exercise was advertised in the notices detailed in IV.2.1. Anyone participating in this procurement process does so at its own risk and shall bear its own costs, whether or not the process proceeds as anticipated, or at all. Subject to the fuller terms of the procurement documents, NGET reserves the right (in its sole and absolute discretion and without liability to any person): (i) not to accept the highest scoring, or any, bid(s); (ii) to cancel the procurement process or any lot or other part of it at any time; (iii) not to award a contract in any lot or at all; and (iv) to make changes to the content and structure of the procurement process at any time. The Great Grid Upgrade Partnership constitutes a single programme to achieve National Grid's Great Grid Upgrade (https://www.nationalgrid.com/the-great-grid-upgrade). It is currently anticipated that this programme will be delivered by the Enterprise Partners through the Enterprise Agreement and the call-off contracts awarded under it, and the full scope of that is included in the scope advertised by this notice. However, and without limiting that, the works and services awarded to Enterprise Partner(s) may extend beyond that to involve additional works and services, through the award of further contracts in reliance on the procedure in Regulation 50(1)(f) of the Utilities Contracts Regulations 2016 and/or any successor provision in the new Procurement Act, when enacted, concerning direct awards for additional or repeat works or services. Any contracts for new works or services consisting in the repetition of similar works or services will conform to the Great Grid Upgrade programme and / or a particular project for which packages are called-off under the Great Grid Upgrade Partnership.

Maintenance Services for Leachate Collection & Treatment Systems
UK Preston Lancashire County Council

Lancashire County Council (The Authority) is inviting tenders for the provision of maintenance services for the Authority's leachate collection and treatment systems. The Authority operates eight waste landfill sites throughout the county of Lancashire. The leachate collection and treatment systems at each site are designed to collect and/or collect and treat leachate prior to its discharge to foul sewer. Leachate is the liquid that drains or "leaches" from a landfill and is an unavoidable product of landfill. The liquid will have passed through materials and extracted solutes, suspended solids or any other component of the material through which it has passed. The Authority has a responsibility to ensure the leachate is collected and treated prior to its safe disposal into foul sewer to avoid pollution.The performance of the Council's landfill drainage treatment systems is regulated by United Utilities Plc and the Environment Agency. The Authority has a responsibility to manage closed landfill sites as well as enforcing environmental standards, as per various legislative requirements such as Environmental Protection Act 1990, Environmental Permitting Regulations 2016 and Water Industry Act 1991. Therefore it is important that the systems designed to achieve these responsibilities are effectively cleaned and maintained. The Services involve pipe work and sewer jetting, leachate sump and tank cleaning, lagoon cleaning and additional services as requested by the Authority from time to time. Additional services includes scope for out-of-hours work although in practice this is a rarity. Please view the procurement documents for further information about service requirements.

The Play Area in the Old Showfield is Frome’s largest public play space, but due to a combination of unusually wet ground conditions, the materials used and the age of the play structures, nearly all the play installations have now been retired.Frome Town Council are looking for an experienced and reputable Play Company to support the redevelopment of the play offer on the site. See link for locationhttps://goo.gl/maps/thNuC8xXB5Y3mcRCAThe development will consider the recommendations from the Frome Play Strategy https://www.frometowncouncil.gov.uk/wp-content/uploads/2022/02/Play-Strategy-for-Frome-2021-2025.pdf.Our aim is to create a highly engaging play destination that surprises and inspires. We are encouraging play responses that are bold and innovative that focus on the play outcomes and experiences rather than delivering specific play equipment items.Key principles from this strategy include:Ensuring inclusivity - play options included that promote access for allEncourage a sense of safe and social space, promoting permission to play and belongingNurture incidental playProvoke innovation and adventureOffers variety and a range of risks and challengeAs additional context to inform the design process we have a summary of the views of users of the play area gained from a series of Community Engagement sessions in the summer of 2022 - see supporting document: https://www.frometowncouncil.gov.uk/wp-content/uploads/2023/03/Old-Showfield-engagement-findings.pdfThe references to individual play items are again a guide helping to inform thoughts about play experiences rather than literal suggestions for named play installations.In addition to the play installations the scope of the tender includes undertaking the necessary investigations, design and ground works to address the pooling of water, through site reprofiling (design of the surfacing and sub-base) to eliminate a bottom bowl and providing run-off through standard land drains. Additional information providing a topographical survey and information on underground utilities will be provided as part of the package of information for tendering. The full scope of the works will be explained at an on-site briefing meeting on 27 April to be held at 11am at the Play Area.Due to the high soil moisture content, play installations should consider the need for longevity, low maintenance and avoidance of rot (minimising/excluding use of wood structurally especially in ground, though wood cladding is an attractive and viable option)The successful tenderer shall ensure that all equipment and surface finishes meet the necessary safety and play equipment standards. They will provide details of warranty and maintenance offered as part of the proposals.The successful tenderer shall also obtain all necessary statutory approvals that may be required.The tender will include for the removal and disposal of all existing equipment, surfacing and other waste materials and installation of new equipment to include surfacing and making good as required. The site is located in the middle of a public park and consideration should be given to protection of the site and works during the construction and installation of the drainage, equipment and surfacing.The awarded company will work closely with Frome Town Councils Officers, the council’s Employers’ Agents overseeing the works, and the Council Rangers.

Branding & Design Services
UK NEWPORT Wales & West Utilities Ltd

Wales & West Utilities Limited is looking to appoint a creative design, communications and employee engagement agency to support the delivery of our communications and engagement strategy - both internal and external. Responding to the challenges we face, externally our communications activity is focussed on our involvement in the future energy system and helping the communities we serve go green - as well as the sustainability of our business. Internally, after a period of disruption and change driven by business change to address our new price control and the pandemic, we are focussed on settling our business and our colleagues, and looking towards the future. This sits alongside our day to day activity to communicate the work we do to keep the gas flowing safely to communities across Wales and south west England. The successful provider of this contract will be involved in supporting this activity, working closely with the Corporate Affairs Manager and the Corporate Affairs team. We recently completed a rebranding process, evolving a brand that has been positively received by customers and colleagues alike. We have new brand guidelines in place. Potential providers should demonstrate their ability to interpret, evolve, grow and broaden this brand across digital, print and other channels. WWU play a critical role in communities, and we are highly regulated. Potential providers should demonstrate their ability to operate within these boundaries, and how they will make sure that creative materials are pitched appropriately. As part of this contract we expect to request the following services: Multi-channel communications campaign development/delivery Multi-channel design support Strategic employee communications/engagement delivery We would expect the successful provider to work successfully alongside existing press, digital and public affairs agencies, to deliver these services. Much of our material is safety critical - letting the most vulnerable in society know what to do to keep themselves safe if they have a gas leak, or suspect the presence of carbon monoxide. Therefore, potential providers should demonstrate that they have a clear understanding of the importance of accessibility - and set out the guidelines they would deliver work to. As a company that serves both Wales and south west England, potential providers should demonstrate how they can integrate the Welsh language into designed documents, while keeping the impact on design and production costs to a minimum. We are a small team with a large remit and therefore being able to work effectively and efficiently with our suppliers is paramount. It is crucial that both parties understand and agree on deliverables and deadlines and that high levels of communication are maintained at all times.

Barrow Town Centre Improvements - Design Commission
UK Barrow in Furness Barrow in Furness Borough Council

1.1 Introduction and BackgroundMarina Village is a proposed mixed-use scheme that would transform a currently derelict brownfield site on the north side of Buccleuch Dock, on the edge of Barrow-in-Furness town centre.The majority of the 25-hectare site is in council ownership. Funding has been secured through Getting Building Fund to remediate the ground conditions across a first development phase (approx. 6 hectares), which can be accessed via a new purpose built access off Salthouse Road.The south and east of the Marina Village site require additional enabling works, presenting a viability challenge for private developers. The Council has secured £1.5m to provide an upgraded junction to the south west of the Marina Village site connecting Cavendish Dock Road to Strand / Salthouse Road and to relocate a new substation and utilities diversions on the east of the site. These interventions remove two major constraints on further private sector development.The project is at a stage where it requires a detailed design to be undertaken with associated additional survey and investigation works to enable the project to be let for construction by competitive tender via the Chest. Planning permission will also be required as Cavendish Dock Road is currently not adopted and due to its setting in relation to a number of listed buildings.This project scope details the Services required to1) enable the upgrade of the existing Cavendish Dock Road/Salthouse Road junction to a fit for purpose right turn priority junction (as detailed within the existing concept design).2) Act as agent on behalf of the Council and engage with ENW to secure the relocation of the sub station at Marina Village.The anticipated value of this commission is £150,000Key Project developments:i. The Council has developed a sketch design for the scheme to inform the Brownfield land release fund application.ii. The unadopted Cavendish Dock Road is owned by Barrow Borough Council. The majority of the Marina Village site is within Barrow BC ownership, but some properties remain in private ownership. The scheme must be constructed within the parcels of land owned by Barrow BC.iii. There are a significant number of statutory undertakers infrastructure in the area including Vodafone broadband, IP gas, electric cables and water. From experience on the junction works undertaken in 2018, the lowering/relocation had significantly long lead in times and any diversionary/lowering works should be undertaken prior to the appointment of a lead contractor (where practicable) and supervised by the principal designer.iv. Modelling is required to inform the junction design. This should be undertaken in conjunction with development management and infrastructure planning team within Cumbria County Council.v. Salthouse road is within Cumbria County Council’s LCWIP and therefore the design of the junction needs to be considerate of the requirements within LTN 1/20 guidance.vi.
