II.2.3)Place of performance
NUTS code: UKL16
Main site or place of performance:

Within the boundaries of Caerphilly County Borough Council.

II.2.4)Description of the procurement:

The Council promotes the use of Constructionline for works contracts, therefore in order to simplify the pre qualification process for Contractors the Council will utilise certain aspects of the Constructionline registration process and specifically the Builders General category. The Council will also consider Contractors who are not Constructionline registered and pre qualification criteria have been set for non Constructionline registered Contractors. It should be noted that, where a Contractor is registered for the Building General category the Constructionline information will be used for pre qualification and during the validity period of the DPS.

Immediate requirements for the Council via the DPS are to run mini competitions to identify Contractors to undertake separate packages of external works to the Council's housing stock in accordance with the Welsh Housing Quality Standard (WHQS) Programme. The proposed separate packages of works will be undertaken in the Lower Rhymney Valley of the County Borough and Contractors will be required to provide a range of external works general building disciplines including but not limited to the external Common Procurement Vocabulary (CPV) codes listed in the relevant section of this notice. The specific works that maybe procured under the DPS for these external works cannot be clearly defined at this stage, however full details will be available via the mini competitions and associated Invitation to Tender documentation. The indicative overall accumulative value of the external works packages for the Lower Rhymney Valley is estimated at 16 000 000.00 GBP. However it should be noted there is no guarantee of volume of packages of work or value of contracts to be let via the DPS.

The Council via the Direct Labour Organisation(‘DLO’) also requires general builders on a primary and secondary basis to support the DLO across a range of general building disciplines. This includes but not limited to the Common Procurement Vocabulary (CPV) codes listed in the relevant section of this notice. The specific requirements that maybe procured under the DPS for these works cannot be clearly defined at this stage, however full details will be available via the mini competitions and associated Invitation to Tender documentation. The indicative overall accumulative value for this requirement is estimated at 1 000 000.00 GBP. However it should be noted there is no guarantee of volume of work or value of contracts to be let via the DPS.

All successful Contractors who are established on the DPS will be invited to participate in future mini competitions providing that they continually meet the DPS pre qualification criteria for the validity period of the DPS.

The award criteria for the mini competitions shall be based on either price or cost only or price-quality ratio. The % weighting will be price or cost 0-100 % and price-quality 0-100 % split between both criteria. Contractors may be required to consider different pricing or costing strategies as part of the mini competitions such as but not limited to pricing bills of quantities, schedules of rates and +or- adjustment against a Nationally recognised or Council specific schedule of rates. Future mini competitions will include the exact award criteria, associated weightings and pricing or costing strategy for the specific requirement.

All mini competitions undertaken via this DPS will be awarded upon the basis of a Nationally approved/ industry standard Contract Terms and Conditions such as JCT and NEC Family of Contracts. Future mini competitions will include the exact terms and conditions of contract.
