Phase 1 - OJEU 1 (National/Localised Bundled FM) OJEU - Jan 18, Award - July 18, Live - from August 18
Phase 2 - OJEU 2 (Defence FM, Housing Maintenance, Security) OJEU - July 18, Award - December 18, Live 2019

 

Reminder

CCS would like to issue a reminder to all participants of the FM Marketplace Phase 1 ITT that all notifications from CCS related to the tender, clarifications and bid submissions will be via the eSourcing Suite.  Please ensure that you are registered for the portal, and have requested to participate in the RM3830 procurement.

Guidance is also available on GOV.UK for using the eSourcing tool.

All technical queries about the portal should be directed to eenablement[at]crowncommercial.gov[dot]uk.

Consortia Interest

CCS has had a number of questions regarding joint ventures and consortia.  CCS can confirm that bids involving consortia, joint ventures and sub-contractors are welcomed. However, we can only contract with a single legal entity.  Therefore, you can:

  • Work together with other legal entities to form a consortium/JV.  If you do, you will need to choose a lead member who will submit the bid on behalf of the consortium/JV.  If you are forming a new legal entity, it will need to be in place by the framework award stage.
  • Bid with the named subcontractors to deliver parts of the requirements. 

If you are using either of these  options you will have to identify what each of the parties are contributing to the bid.

Should you need any further clarification, please respond with your question to nextgenfm@crowncommercial.gov.uk

Timescales

CCS has received a considerable amount of feedback from the market and supply chain in relation to the timing of the OJEU publication for the first phase of the FM Marketplace.

It has been our intention to publish the first OJEU for the FM Marketplace within this calendar year, on the 12th December 2017. Feedback suggests that placing the advert prior to the festive period would have a detrimental impact on the supplier market ability to participate comprehensively in the clarification process and provide CCS with the best tender responses possible. CCS had however, already allowed additional time within the tender period to compensate for supplier down-time over the festive period.

Having listened to the feedback and concerns from the market, we have therefore concluded that it would be beneficial to delay publication of the phase 1 competition from 12th December, to 3rd January 2018. This delay of around 2 weeks will have a limited impact on the tender timescales, therefore CCS feel the benefit of waiting until supply chain partners are fully resourced after the festive break warrants a limited delay in publication. The revised tender submission date for supplier returns will now be 23rd March 2018.

CCS will endeavour to make various pieces of documentation available via this webpage as and when drafts are sufficiently complete, however we would like to stress that only documents issued in January with the publication of the OJEU advert, should be used to formulate tender responses and all previous drafts should be discarded.

Any further feedback on this or any other aspect of this procurement should be directed to the project mailbox nextgenfm[at]crowncommercial.gov[dot]uk.
