Framework Agreement on Economic Auditing of Construction Projects
Framework agreement on the provision of services relating to the economic auditing of construction projects.
Bygningsstyrelsen offers a Framework Agreement that gives Bygningsstyrelsen the right to engage a consultant to provide consultancy services in the fields of due diligence, feasibility studies, risk assessment and cost management in complex construction projects in Denmark. It is the intention that all Bygningsstyrelsens projects over DKK 100 million. must be subject to external economic auditing.
The purpose of this framework agreement is to allow Bygningsstyrelsen to draw upon the services of an auditor on a case-by-case basis and in cooperation with said auditor to tailor the services provided to the requirements of the particular project. The services provided will relate to construction projects in Denmark - it is possible (though unlikely) that Bygningsstyrelsen will draw upon the agreement in relation to projects in Greenland or the Faroe Island.
Bygningsstyrelsen is an agency under the auspices of the Ministry of Transport and Housing. The ministry can, on occasion, initiate an economic audit of a construction project. On such occasions, the ministry is entitled (but not obliged) to call off services under the framework agreement. On such occasions, the ministry shall be deemed to be the client for the purposes of the particular call-off agreement.
The framework agreement can be renewed at the behest of Bygningsstyrelsen for 2 periods of up to 12 months to a maximum duration of 48 months in total.
If Bygningsstyrelsen receives more than 3 suitable candidates to participate in the tender, Bygningsstyrelsen will select 3 candidates to submit tenders.
The selection will be made on the basis of an overall assessment of the relevance of the references mentioned in point III.1.3) in relation to the tendered framework agreement.
In the assesment Bygningsstyrelsen will emphasize the extent to which the references document experience
(a) economic auditing of construction projects,
(b) contract cost management,
(c) benchmarking against simillar projects,
(d) cost build up from building elemet quantities, and
(e) analysis of project scope, design, functions and cost.
The total value of the framework agreement can be increased by 20 percent cf. § 17 in the framework agreement.
