Yorkshire Water AMP4 Selection


Neil Earnshaw from NE Consult project managed the procurement of Yorkshire Water’s AMP4 contract partners who have delivered the majority of the £700m capital programme of works over the 5-year AMP period. This involved a 12-month secondment into Yorkshire Water and working closely with the senior management team to develop a procurement process that was both legally robust and innovative.

The tender documentation was produced with rigorous attention to detail to ensure that YW’s requirements were clearly and concisely communicated. YW wanted more than just a superficial procurement process, from the early stages they had the desire to really get under the skin of bidders in order identify the ones they could work with best.
This process involved interactive workshops and interview processes as well as office and site visits. The 5-year framework was awarded based on an amended version of the NEC ECC, main option C.
