The Department of Finance, Land and Property Services (LPS) in Northern Ireland has a requirement for a Land Registration Delivery Partner to deliver a modern digitally enabled ICT solution that will support the transformation of Land Registration Services. It is envisaged that the new solution will be responsible for but not limited to the replacement of the aging stand-alone legacy systems with a new digital Land Registration solution that supports the design and delivery of joined up services. The new solution will be user friendly, customer focused, support web-based technologies, digital self-service platforms and seamlessly connect and integrate with the LPS Enterprise Integration Platform to share and consume data and business events. The new solution will also be flexible and adaptable to support new and innovative methods of delivery, future changes and ongoing business needs. Further information is available in the Project Description document and the Information Memorandum (IM).

Additional information: A selection process will be used to identify Economic Operators (EO(s)), who having submitted a response to the Selection Questionnaire (SQ) and sufficiently demonstrate to the Contracting Authority’s satisfaction the appropriate technical and professional ability, economic, financial and legal standing to meet the requirements of the Contract. The Contracting Authority reserves the right: to reject any or all SQ or tender responses and to cancel or withdraw the procurement process at any stage; to change the basis of the timescales set out or referred to in the procurement documents; to require an EO to clarify its SQ or tender response in writing and/or provide additional information; to terminate the procurement process; and/or to amend the terms and conditions of the SQ or tender evaluation process or Invitation to Participate in Dialogue (ITPD). The Contracting Authority does not bind itself to accept the lowest or any tender. EOs remain responsible for all costs and expenses incurred by them or by any third party acting under instructions from the EO in connection with taking part in this procurement process, regardless of whether such costs arise as a consequence, directly or indirectly, of any amendments made to the procurement documents by the Contracting Authority at any time. No legally binding contract shall arise (and an EO shall have no legitimate expectation that a contract will be entered into) until such time as entry into the Contract has been confirmed by the Contracting Authority. EOs should note that all dates, time periods and figures in relation to values and volumes specified in this notice and the procurement documents are approximate only and the Contracting Authority reserves the right to change any or all of them. The pricing strategy applied and the setting of cost/profit margins are a commercial decision for EOs when submitting a bid for this competition.

Renewal Options

The Contract will have a core term of up to 15 years, including an implementation period of up to 3 years and 12-year operation.

The maximum Contract Value including any optional extension periods ranges from 45,000,000 GBP to 125,000,000 GBP exclusive of VAT. This is an estimated range only and the Contracting Authority reserves the right to award a contract for a lower or higher amount. This range reflects the potential scale of the contract and takes into account changes and potential modifications to the contract that may be required due to legislative, operational and technological developments and/or additional functions and additional services that LPS may be required to provide during the contract term. The successful solution may be required to be introduced using a phased approach under the contract, in which case the Contracting Authority reserves the right to terminate the contract at the end of any particular phase or opt for a further phase or phases to be provided.
