VI.3) Additional information

LHC is a joint committee of local authorities acting as a central purchasing body on behalf of Scottish Procurement Alliance (SPA) partners who include housing associations and councils constituted under section 2 of the Local Government etc (Scotland) Act 1994, with whom and for whom this framework has been developed.

Due to the reach and scale of SPA partners' portfolios the framework aims to support the delivery of housing throughout Scotland. Consequently, whilst not specifically consulted in the development of this framework, other contracting authorities as defined by the Public Contracts (Scotland) Regulations 2015 and as described in www.procurementalliance.scot/24 may also deem the framework to offer a value for money procurement solution for their requirements, and may also use the framework.

However bidders should only consider the opportunity presented by current and future members of the SPA when preparing and submitting their bids.

The GBP150m value for the contract notice is based on a challenging target of circa 10,000 units, and reflects the SPA partners' determination to help achieve the target for new houses set out by Scottish government. Consultancy costs are estimated at 10% of construction costs for each project.

A sub-contract clause has been included in this contract. For more information see: http://www.publiccontractsscotland.gov.uk/info/InfoCentre.aspx?ID=2363

Community benefits are included in this requirement. For more information see: http://www.publiccontractsscotland.gov.uk/info/InfoCentre.aspx?ID=2361 and Schedule 1 of the FAC1 agreement within the ITT zip folder attached to this notice.

For the avoidance of doubt in Scotland it is mandatory for Community Benefit requirements and Project Bank Accounts to be included for all projects over the relevant OJEU threshold.
