II.2.4)Description of the procurement:

The Environment Agency is intending to select framework contractors to undertake the works detailed in the Specification for the Supply and Delivery of Aggregates and Beach Recycle Framework across the South East of England - this incorporates the Agency's geographical areas of Hertfordshire and North London, West Thames, Solent and South Downs, and Kent and South London. However, this does not preclude the service covering other Areas on an ad-hoc basis, or as otherwise required:

The framework will operate with 3 distinct ‘Lots’. It is proposed to create a multi-supplier framework to ensure coverage and value for money for the beach replenishment work and a single supplier for the beach recycle. The Environment Agency reserves the right to award (allocate) all ‘Lots’ to one contractor or to award individual ‘Lots’ to different contractors.

The 3 distinct lots are:

Lot 1 - Land-based Material,

Lot 2 - Marine Material,

Lot 3 - Beach Recycle including emergency response.

Use of this framework may also be offered to the Department of the Environment, Food and Rural Affairs (Defra), and to its associated bodies including any Agencies and non departmental public bodies. Also, local authorities in England and Wales. A full list maybe found at http://local.direct.gov.uk/Data

As such, any indicative volumes or estimated framework values may be subject to change.

The framework will be a multiple supplier framework with provision for the projects under each Lot to be competitively tendered at individual project call off level. However, it is envisaged that the framework will be awarded on the basis of single supplier lots.
