Natural England is setting up a framework contract for itself and the Ministry of Defence, Defra, the Forestry Commission, the Environment Agency and five national park authorities.
The idea is to source all the services required for peat bog restoration from one contractor and also to help streamline the contract award process.
Specific purchases under the six framework lots will be made on an ad hoc basis as the opportunity arises over the next four years.
These will include cover tree/scrub removal, peat restoration activities, surveys, analysis and health and safety design/supervision.
The work is expected to be worth £10 million in total.
Tenders can only be submitted via the Bravo e-tendering portal and bidders are asked to contact Natural England by writing via the Bravo ‘Messages’ area, bearing in mind that each lot has its own 'Messages' section.
The contract point at Natural England is McGirr Benjamin on 07917791741 or firstname.lastname@example.org.
The final deadline for bids is 6 April at noon.
