Look at and analysis the various approaches to procurement for the project. Conventional procurement v design and build should be assessed in the light of the failure of the novated design and build approach employed in the previous phase. Should the service diversions be part of the main infrastructure contract or left as a separate Framework Agreement? Should a collaborative contract such as NEC4 be used or should a recourse contract such as FIDIC be employed?
A final report should be submitted along with a slide presentation plus any background information such as spreadsheets.
A Briefing note will be made available shortly to suggest possible approaches to the above tasks.
