Grants & Design
Why is there a new process for grants and
designers?
Old VIPP
The application of the VIPP process on grants and
design contractors was not suitable for the following
reasons:
•
•
Enhanced VIPP from 1 January 2013
•
Grant applicants and all design contractors for
projects over the VIPP threshold to liaise with ICN
to ascertain localisation opportunities via VMC as
a condition of contract.
•
Design contractors for capital projects likely to
exceed the thresholds must seek an Interaction
Reference Number (IRN) regardless of the cost of
the design component.
Design Contractor:
o
VIPP not applied, under threshold
o
VIPP applied, no requirement for ICN
interaction
Grant Recipient
o
VIPP applied to grant recipient, not the
constructor
o
VIPP applied, no requirement for ICN
interaction
o
VIPP not applied, under threshold
Grants and design contracts overview
•
Grant applicants to liaise with ICN to ascertain localisation opportunities
where the value of the grant is a substantial component of a
project/procurement and is over the VIPP thresholds.
•
Design contractors to liaise with ICN to ascertain localisation
opportunities where the total value of the whole project meets or
exceeds the VIPP monetary thresholds, the value of the design contract
itself is not relevant.
•
ICN reviews and determines level of contestable procurements
•
•
Nil/ Limited contestability – no interaction with ICN required
•
Contestable Procurements – ICN will liaise with the grant applicant/ design
contractor to discuss and outline any identified Contestable Procurements
Ensures local opportunities are not inadvertently designed out and VIPP
objectives will be applied at the earliest point of the contract/ project
