SEPA Flood Risk Management Procurement Framework

Closed 1 Nov 2019

Opened 2 Oct 2019

Results expected 25 Nov 2019

Feedback expected 17 Dec 2019


The purpose of this questionnaire is to capture your company’s views on the SEPA Flood Risk Management Framework Agreement (‘FRM Act Framework Agreement‘) for the period 2016 to June 2019.  

As a company that has provided services within the current framework, you are being invited to provide feedback to help us understand how well the framework has worked and where improvements can be made as we prepare our procurement strategy for the future.

The questionnaire will take around 45 minutes to complete and, once completed, should be submitted by 1 November 2019.

Why We Are Consulting

Between 2016 and June 2019 SEPA issued Invitations to Tender for more than 25 contracts through the FRM Act Framework Agreement with an overall value in excess of £1.3 Million. This covered a wide range of services including Hydrological & Hydraulic Modelling, Flood Map Development, Flood Risk Management Appraisals, Land Surveys, Training Course Provision, Flood Risk Assessments and the appointment of Reservoir Panel Engineers, as well as secondments of consultancy staff to support SEPA activities.

Please complete the following questionnaire relating to SEPA’s Improving Flood Resilience Modelling Framework Agreement (REF: R15004OJE).

If your company has provided services under more than 1 lot and you wish to answer differently for your experiences on each Lot, please tick 1 box for each Lot you wish to respond for, but please explain which Lot each answer refers to in the comments section underneath. At the end of each section you have an opportunity to provide comments on what you think worked well and what did not (with no word limit). We would appreciate if you could supply supporting comments to allow us to fully understand your score.

If you are responding as a sub-contractor we appreciate that not all questions are relevant.  However, completion of this box would be appreciated if you have any comments you wish to make.

Please note that all questionnaire results will be anonymous.
