Section IV: Procedure
IV.1.1) Type of procedure
- Accelerated procedure
The off-site water drainage works are technically complex to the point that specialist civil engineering project management is needed. Until the full extent of the works was understood (a bored tunnel sewer) the need for this role was not identified.
The works themselves are already commissioned under a JCT D&B construction contract but require completion in strictly defined limits using an engineering form of contract (NEC3 Option A).
In order to meet these time constraints the appointment of project manager and supervisor have become critical, therefore an accelerated procedure is necessary.
IV.1.8) Information about Government Procurement Agreement (GPA)
The procurement is covered by the Government Procurement Agreement:
