Consultancy Services

The Consultancy Services framework procurement was done using an open procedure through the Official Journal of the European Union (OJEU). There are 13 lots covering both new build and refurbishment. The lots can be seen on the sub menus on the left of the screen.

In order to comply with OJEU regulations there are two options for selecting the consultant: mini competition or direct selection.

To use direct selection the landlord should be able to determine from the original tender information which is the most economically advantageous offer for their requirement. Due to the simple nature of this selection, this method is only suitable for single service where the scope of works is similar to that used at tender. The reason for the selection should be recorded for audit purposes.

To carry out a mini competition landlords should:

  • Invite all the consultants who are capable of carrying out all the work to tender – reasons for excluding any consultants should be recorded
  • Send the ITT to all providers at the same time. The ITT should set out the criteria that are to be used (questions should be from price, capacity and availability, corporate and social responsibility, delivery of service which were used in the original tender), the respective weighting, the timescale and process to be used
  • Tenders should be scored consistently and the most economically advantageous submission should be awarded the contract

The running of any mini competition is the responsibility of the landlord. Procure Plus have an internet based tender management system that can be used to manage this.

The form of underlying contract in the framework is the Professional Deed of Appointment. Should landlords wish to access the framework, Procure Plus will issue a licence that needs to be signed and returned Procure Plus before starting any selection process.

Should landlords wish to access the framework, Procure Plus will issue a licence that needs to be signed and returned to Procure Plus before any selection process (direct selection or mini competition) can begin.
