North Lanarkshire Council – Enterprise Strategic Commercial Partnership logo

North Lanarkshire Council (the Council) has an ambitious vision to re-invent North Lanarkshire as the place to Live, Learn, Work, Invest and Visit. The Council aims to implement its vision that enables inclusive economic growth and prosperity through an ambitious programme of regeneration and infrastructure investment.

The Council is seeking a private sector partner (the Commercial Partner or PSP) to create a long term strategic commercial place shaping partnership to provide an innovative new approach to the delivery of a full range of interconnected property, community asset and infrastructure investment to support its ambitions to revitalise its communities.

Due to the complex nature of the requirement, the Council will be using the competitive dialogue procedure for this procurement.

North Lanarkshire Council is proposing to establish an Enterprise Strategic Commercial Partnership (ESCP) with a PSP to provide strategic advice and services (the Partnering Services), delivery of asset maintenance services (the Core Services), management and delivery of projects ancillary to the delivery of Core Services (the Core Projects & Programmes) for 20 years (plus up to 5 years extension).

The ESCP is expected to drive efficiencies, bring innovation, deliver value for money and continuous improvement to support the Council in meeting and exceeding its objectives.

It is envisaged that the Council and the PSP will each be a member of the ESCP entity, with the PSP owning the majority stake. The PSP will be required to enter into a joint venture agreement with the Council to establish the ESCP (the Members Agreement). The ESCP will also enter into a partnering agreement with the Council through which the Partnering Services, Core Services, and Core Projects & Programmes will be delivered (the Prime Contract).

The Council may require the ESCP (or special purpose vehicles which may be established by the ESCP) to deliver Partnering Services relating to a range of projects for new assets and/or specific facilities management service contracts entered into by the Council with third parties.

Partnering Services to be provided by the ESCP will include:

  1. Strategic Services — providing a range of professional services to support the Council to develop strategy and policy, develop business cases, conduct feasibility studies, source finance and external funding, develop procurement strategy, and manage social impact to support the delivery of Core Services, Core Projects & Programmes, and support the management of Council Funded Projects and Programmes and Strategic Projects and Programmes.
  2. Delivery Management Services — providing a range of professional services to support the Council to conduct procurement exercises, provide project management and programme management services, and commercial management services in respect of Core Services, Core Projects & Programmes, and management of Council Funded Projects and Programmes and Strategic Projects and Programmes.
  3. Integrator / Operator Services – providing a range of professional services to the Council to develop, and manage a supply chain for Partnering Services, Core Services, Core Projects & Programmes, and deliver and manage Partnering Services, Core Services, and Core Projects and Programmes.

Core Services to be provided by the ESCP will include delivery of services including but not limited to delivery of housing maintenance services, corporate maintenance services and roads maintenance and winter services.

Core Projects & Programmes to be provided by the ESCP will include life cycle replacements of components of assets at scale (including but not limited to replacement of kitchens, bathrooms, flooring, roofs, render, cladding, mechanical and electrical installations, heating installations, windows, doors, decoration works, drainage works, communal area works, energy efficiency improvements, tower block works, demolition and other refurbishment works).

The estimated contract value is 5.737bn GBP over the full contract term (including all extensions) based on the Council’s budgets for the Partnering Services, Core Services and Core Projects and Programmes. There is no guarantee of this level of business.
