The M1 Pacific Motorway Extension to Raymond Terrace Project (M12RT) is in the process of undertaking market engagement to gauge industry appetite and feedback on possible models to be utilised for the procurement of construction services and delivery of the project. This will be undertaken by way of a Market Interaction Process (MIP).
Industry partners are invited to participate in the M1 Pacific Motorway Extension to Raymond Terrace Project Market Interaction Process (M12RT MIP). The process of undertaking industry interaction in respect of proposed infrastructure delivery models is in line with the NSW Government’s 10 Point Plan for the Construction Industry.
Specifically, the M12RT MIP in accordance with the 10 Point Plan aims to:
- Use early market engagement to elicit industry’s views on the best choice of procurement pathway for the project.
- Seek the market’s views, early in the procurement process, about the extent of geotechnical and other due diligence that will help to reduce “in-ground” and other risks which are hard to investigate and forecast, and provide Government warranties for the factual accuracy of the resulting data.
- Seek industry’s views on any other areas in which value for public money and industry sustainability could most readily be improved through risk-sharing.
- Develop standard contractual risk-sharing mechanisms for these items which keep both parties appropriately incentivised but do not put the contractor’s overall viability at risk.
- Work with industry to identify collaborative approaches across agencies and projects to manage and reduce utility-related risks.
In undertaking the M12RT MIP, TfNSW are seeking to identify the optimal delivery contract model and packaging strategy that will allow early commencement, and resultant early project opening (to deliver customer outcomes) and minimise overall project cost.
In order to achieve these objectives, the M12RT MIP will broadly consist of the following activities:
- Advertising, registration, and establishment of eligibility to participate in the M12RT MIP commencing on Friday 13 November 2020.
- Eligible industry partners accessing the M12RT MIP Electronic Data Room for the purposes of reviewing project documentation.
- M12RT Information Briefing to all eligible participants (conducted via an online briefing session).
- Development and lodgement of a M12RT MIP submission by registered industry partners which addresses TfNSW’s M12RT MIP questions.
- Selected and registered industry partners may be invited to attend TfNSW facilitated technical and commercial interactive sessions in a confidential environment.
To participate in the MIP, registrations must be received by Friday 20 November 2020.
Industry access to the M12RT MIP information will conclude Friday 18 December 2020.
This project is jointly funded by the Australian and NSW Governments
Note to Participants: Electing to participate in any or all of the activities that form part of the M12RT MIP is completely optional and voluntary, and at the participants’ cost and risk.
