This Request for Proposals (RFP) is an invitation to suitably qualified Consultants to submit a Proposal for the CW2018-106 Quantity Surveying - Cost Management Services contract opportunity.
The Capital Works programme has a requirement for a Quantity Surveyor Consultancy firm to assist Capital Works in the management (collection/standardisation/analysis) of their construction cost data and to facilitate progress towards more effective commercial systems and processes. This project will make effective use of the cost data, a number of outcomes will be achieved through the development of the cost platform.
This use of data will give the Ministry confidence that we are getting the best value for money from our construction spend through the ability to make best use of available cost data at all stages of Capital Works construction projects. This data would be housed in a user friendly tool (or equivalent system) and available in clear useful formats able to be provide programme information as required, e.g. split by Region, Construction Value, trade and work type.
Historically there has been an inconsistent approach to gathering, analysing or leveraging cost data from tenders and contracts in a manner which allows the Capital Works programme to increase operational efficiency. There is a large amount of cost data available, which is not fully utilised that could assist the Ministry to make more informed decisions during business case development, tender response benchmarking and contract negotiations.
Additionally, we strive to improve the Ministry’s position to accurately estimate future project values and adjust to market trends in order to enable effective strategic planning of the Capital Works pipeline. Specifically through live national tracking of market trends and rebasing of data gathered in a format which factors in project specific risks and any future market changes, e.g. Resource Availability, Regional Pressures, Construction Elements, Volume, Lifecycle Period and RPI.
Please check out the RFP for further information and use the GETS Q&A function for any questions.
