Outline the proposed procurement strategy and
seek approval to progress with the proposed strategy
Formal approval was given to commence the procurement of a Design and Build Services Contract to deliver the Oxford Street District project.
Formal approval was given to change the price/quality contract evaluation ratio depending on the outcome of the soft market testing and in consultation with the Strategic Steering Group.
Reasons for Recommendations
That the Oxford Street District was in need of significant and wide reaching public realm improvements to underpin and support the delivery of the emerging draft Oxford Street District Place Strategy. This will ensure that a service provider are appointed to deliver the District Place Strategy following public consultation.
The potential variation to the price/quality evaluation split was recommended as this was a very high profile initiative requiring a greater emphasis on the quality of works.
