Meeting with Sellafield Ltd, Tuesday 29 September 2020

29 Sep
29 September 2020, 1:00 pm - 3:00 pm

The session is a market engagement event to release further information on Sellafield Ltd’s strategy to procure Integrated Asset Care (IAC) support. To book your place, please contact Marie-Claude Hemming: 

Procurement Overview

The IAC framework is Sellafield Ltd’s proposed replacement arrangement to the existing Operation Site Works (OSW) framework. Similar to the OSW framework, the IAC framework will be a key enabler supporting Sellafield Ltd to deliver its mission to remediate the Sellafield site to an agreed end state in a safe, sustainable and compliant manner whist offering value for money to the UK taxpayer.

The IAC framework must meet the needs of customers across the Sellafield site for core construction and asset care services. It will build upon the learning from experience (LFE) gained from the existing OSW framework and other delivery frameworks. Overall, Sellafield Ltd aim to have a framework through which core construction and asset care services can be delivered in a way that meets the cost and scheduling demands of its users.

Packages of work placed through the IAC framework will be categorised as jobs, tasks and projects and may be placed individually or as part of a wider programme of works.

  • Jobs – Low risk, low complexity and generally low value jobs; expected to be approximately 30% of spend.
  • Tasks – Larger, more complex or more multi-disciplined tasks; expected to be approximately 50% of spend.
  • Projects – Higher value, high complexity or more multi-disciplined projects; expected to be approximately 20% of spend.

Sellafield Ltd anticipate that the successful tenderer will be required to employ a blue-collar resource of over 350 skilled operatives to deliver the scope of the IAC framework.

The competition will be completed through the restricted procedure and will be awarded to a single framework provider.

The estimated value of the framework is £200m-£250m over a 5-year term (4+1 years)

Sellafield Ltd plan to commence the competition in January 2021 and award the contract to the successful bidder in May 2022.
