The iReX Programme is nationally significant, representing a once-in-a-generation investment to the Interislander fleet and associated port side infrastructure. The investment in resilient and sustainable vessels and terminal infrastructure, and a wider transformational programme, will result in a step change for the Interislander ferry service’s performance, and deliver the capacity needed to meet current and future passenger and freight demand.

This procurement presented complexity for our team in that four tenders involving multiple packages were to be evaluated simultaneously within a very short timeframe. Our team worked effectively and efficiently to ensure that evaluation of all tenders was completed within the required timeframe, while also meeting all client and probity requirements.
