Market Information Days
6 March 2017
On 6 March, NLWA held a market information day to invite views from the supplier market on the proposed procurement strategy for the preparatory works and the interfaces between the packages. The preparatory works are the earliest work packages and are needed to prepare the project site, provide new utilities and create new site access points.
The slides used in the presentation given on the day can be downloaded here.
Further market engagement exercises are planned for Autumn 2018 and Summer 2019 on the later works stages.
15 August 2018
We are continuing discussions with the Distribution Network Operators to inform the specification of the utility bridge and corridor works package. We are now expecting to procure these works in 2019, and updates will be posted to this website.
25 June 2018
On 29 June 2018, NLWA will begin the procurement process for three works contracts. The procurement for the works to the Northern Access (Deephams Farm Road) will proceed as described previously, but the Laydown Area and Eastern Access works will be split into two work packages. These packages will be:
- the Laydown Area (East); and
- the Laydown Area (West) and Eastern Access.
All three contracts will be advertised on Contracts Finder. Potential contractors will be able to access the procurement documents and submit their tender responses through NLWA’s e-procurement portal.
Note that as the two packages relating to the Laydown Area will both have contract values above the relevant EU thresholds, they will also be advertised on Tenders Electronic Daily (TED), a supplement to the Official Journal of the European Union. EU regulations mean that until a notice is live on TED, a contract cannot be advertised elsewhere. NLWA will therefore submit the contract notice to TED on 29 June 2018 and, once the notice is live, publish details of the contract on Contracts Finder and the e-procurement portal. This is likely to happen early in the week commencing 2 July 2018.
This update supersedes the previous update of 31 May 2018.
31 May 2018
Suppliers are advised that NLWA intends to begin procuring two works contracts for the North NLHPP at the end of June 2018. The contracts will be for:
- the laydown area and eastern access; and
- the northern access.
Information on these works is available in the Supplier Guide, which is available to download above.
