DfI Roads alternative price assessment method

Building on the pilot price assessment method currently being used by CPD construction CoPEs, DfI Roads have advised us that they too will now use the same mechanism for several upcoming procurements.

DfI Roads CoPE intends to trial an alternative assessment method based on the ‘average of the three lowest tender prices’ for the upcoming tender competitions for Term Contracts for Structures and appropriate Minor and Major Works Schemes in 2019/20.


Amended Works Order Limits

  • The Works Order Upper Limit is to be increased to £30k for future Term Contracts for Small Scale and Responsive Works.
  • The Works Order Lower Limit is to be increased to £30k for future Term Contracts for Asphalt Resurfacing and Minor Improvements.
  • The Works Order Upper Limit is to be increased to £500k for future road maintenance and construction Term Contracts, such as Asphalt Resurfacing, Minor Improvements, Street lighting.

Further details will be provided at the commencement of the tender competitions.
