Scottish Water launches £300M non-infrastructure framework
Scottish Water has issued an OJEU notice seeking up to six Tier 1 non-infrastructure delivery partners for its Q&S IV capital investment programme from 2015-2020. The framework is worth £300M to £360M.
The framework is being split into two lots − civil engineering contractors, and electrical and mechanical contractors − and Scottish Water is planning a Bidders Day following receipt of expressions of interest.
In its issue notice, Scottish Water said that predominately Non Infrastructure Tier 1 contractors will support the overall Delivery Partner responsible for the delivery and completion of the Non Infrastructure element of its Capital Investment Programme, but may also support wider Scottish Water business requirements.
The company wants applications from contractors with the correct skills to deliver the programme. It envisages that a maximum of five applicants per lot will be invited to the tender stage.
