Appointment of Consultants to provide business case support for the Corridor Improvement Programme and Transport Fund schemes.

Jacobs engineering was appointed as the consultant to provide business case support following a procurement exercise, tender reference CA1091. An RFD was approved on the 20th December 2019 and appointed Jacobs as framework supplier and with an initial order of works for Commission 1 and Commission 2. The total value of orders to date for both Commissions (as at 18/05/20) has been £639,933. A written record of an officer decision was made in January 2020.

The contract was set up with known work, Commission 1 and 2, and secondly a framework using a rate card for subsequent works with a total potential value of up to £2m. Following the initial Commissions it is now forecast that a utilisation of the framework element over the course of the next 12- 24 months. This will place new orders from the framework element of the contract.

The total value of the new Commission is not known, but it could be anywhere between the current Commissions value of £639,933 to the total framework ceiling of £2m during the next 12- 24 months. The work is likely to involve the production of business cases. Therefore, this key decision is in place highlighting the potential value of works over the next 12- 24 months.
