NL-Utrecht: Rails and accessories

- Utrecht, The Netherlands, EU

One of the business goals of ProRail is to reduce the number of train service depleting Irregularities (TAO) through reducing the number of avoidable failures. Performance analysis shows that the ES-las is a major contributor to the number of TAO's. Through this tender ProRail wants a framework contract for the delivery of better performing ES-las exit.
The agreement will encompass:

  • A system acceptance contract, which the contractor over a period of approximately 11 months with testing (including testing in the track) shows that the ES-las meets all requirements and it is released for use in the Dutch railway system;
  • A supply agreement for the delivery of the released ES-read for a duration of 3 years, with the possibility of 2 times 2-year extension.
  • As part of your offer, we will offer you in addition to your financial and compliance report also questions among others, to deliver the following products:
    • Information folder, which consists of a prescribed set of documents, certificates, calculations and drawings which underpin compliance with the requirements;
    • FMECA which clarifies how it is ensured that risks during the design, manufacture and supply of the ES-las are so dominated by the contractor that they have no negative effect on the quality and longevity.

The information folder will be tested against the requirements in the tender dossier. The FMECA will be assessed by an evaluation committee, with a minimum score must be achieved in order to qualify for award (pass / fail criterion).

All parties eligible for an invitation to tender will also be invited to a kick-off meeting. In the initial meeting, ProRail will explain the program in the background, the question of ProRail (the tender documentation), and the process of tendering and the expectation of ProRail in to submit offer. ProRail intends to make this kick-off meeting to take place on 10/10/2014, Utrecht.

For the purpose of the award criterion CO2 level of performance in addition to providing a discount certificate also be obtained by providing a CO2 level of ambition. The level of ambition (one of the steps of the CO2 performance ladder) should be reached within the contractual period.
