Can we meet on Monday to discuss this and hear from Phil what was decided
at the London meeting? I'll be in late Monday (waiting for someone to look
at my leaking roof) - so maybe early afternoon. I'm going down to London
early evening and will be at Chelsea on tuesday. Good to see Saffron is
getting some publicity!

Dear all,

Please find attached the final tender pack for the Environment Agency
bid. The tasks have been re-jigged, with the main change being a
broadening of flood risk management to flood and coastal erosion risk
management (FCERM). This means a wider audience to include all
operating authorities, and the best practice guidance required (new Task
11) is now substantial element, to include evaluation of FCERM climate
change adaptation, case studies and provision of evidence to help
upgrade the FCDPAG3 Supplementary Note.

We have just one week to finish this tender, as it must be posted on
Friday 23rd. We are putting together the bid document, which we'll
circulate on Monday 19th, but in the meantime, and by the end of Tuesday
20th, I need everyone to send information (as indicated in brackets) to
support the following structure:

+ Understanding of the tender
+ Methodology and programme (methodology for tasks / sub-tasks - see
below - and timing)
+ Project team, including individual and corporate experience (who you
are putting forward, pen portraits, corporate case studies)
+ Financial and commercial (day rates and number of days; please also
highlight potential issues with the T&Cs e.g. IPR)
+ Health & Safety, Quality and Environmental Management
+ Appendices (full CVs, limited to 6 pages)

Please send to me and Rob McSweeney. The information I have already
e.g. on day rates, core pen portraits etc will go straight into the
version we're working on, so no need to re-send.

In terms of tasks (new nos.), the following organisation is suggested
based on what has been noted to date:

Task 1 (Inception meeting and reporting) Atkins, supported by lead
representatives of partners
Task 2 (Project board meetings) Atkins, supported by lead
representatives of partners
Task 3 (Analysis of user needs) Atkins with Tyn@UEA and OUCE, plus
Futerra depending on style
Task 4 (Phase 2 programme) Atkins, supported by all
Task 5 (Interpret messages from UKCIP08 projections) CRU, OUCE and
Newcastle, with Atkins advice on sectors
Task 6 (Development of business specific projections) Newcastle and CRU,
with Atkins advice on policy and ops
Task 7 (Putting UKCIP08 in context) CRU, Newcastle and OUCE
Task 8 (User guidance) Atkins, Tyn@UEA, Futerra
Task 9 (Pilot studies) Atkins, Newcastle, OUCE, Tyn@UEA
Task 10 (Phase 3 programme) Atkins, supported by all
Task 11 (Best Practice Guidance for FCERM) Newcastle and Atkins, with
Task 12 (Awareness raising events) Atkins, key experts, Futerra (perhaps
as an option as EA are quite specific here)
Task 13 (Training events) Atkins and Futerra

Note that Futerra is a communications consultancy, specialising in
sustainability, who will input on workshops and on the guidance

I'll be in touch again early next week.

Best wishes,
