II.1.4) Short description

Fleet management, repair and maintenance services. Power Capability Extension (PCE) seeks to manage the provision of General Purpose Power (GPP) as an interim solution between the end of the two contracts that provide the current provision for capability in July 2022 and the delivery of the replacement provision, Manoeuvre Power (Man-P), in 2027 (estimated). Man-P is scoped to combine the two GPP requirements into a single provision and is anticipated to be a competitive procurement.

GPP provides support for equipment including electrical power generators across the 2 kW to 40 kW range and electrical distribution equipment in 3 and 1 phase variants. It supports numerous applications in the Land Environment; to support command systems, communications equipment and deployable medical facilities. GPP is required in diverse climatic conditions across the world for extended periods and is therefore a key component of the Army’s operating capability.

Section IV: Procedure

IV.1) Description

IV.1.1) Type of procedure

Negotiated procedure without publication of a contract notice

Justification for selected award procedure:

The works, supplies or services can be provided only by a particular economic operator for the following reason: absence of competition for technical reasons

Explanation:

Operational Infrastructure, part of the UK Ministry of Defence, intends to place a new contract, OI/0064 Power Capability Extension (PCE).

The new PCE contract seeks to manage the provision of General Purpose Power (GPP) as an interim support solution in order to transition to Manoeuvre Power (Man-P). Man- P will combine GPP requirements into a single provision, which is anticipated to a be a competitive procurement in 2027 (estimated).

The PCE support contract shall be for a period of up to 6 years (4 Option years) to provide in-service support until the new Manoeuvre Power capability is in service. It is anticipated that the contract value will be GBP 65 million for the 6 year term, rising to an additional GBP 35 million, should all option years be invoked.

It is considered that current competition is cancelled and the PCE contract can be placed with the current incumbent, Powerfield Limited (T/A Rolls Royce Distributed Generation Systems) using the negotiated procedure without prior publication of a contract notice pursuant to Article 28(1)(e) of Directive 2009/81/EC (Regulation 16 (1)(a)(ii) of the Defence and Security Public Contract Regulations 2011) for technical reasons. This is because Powerfield Ltd (T/A Rolls Royce Distributed Generation Systems was the only successful supplier to pass the Dynamic Pre-Qualification Questionnaire (DPQQ) stage. Therefore, only Powerfield Ltd (T/A Rolls Royce Distributed Generation Systems) has the technical capability, knowledge, resources and ability to manage the provision of GPP.
