Hospitals are not specifically mentioned in the EIA Directive 2011/92/EU, though the project may be covered in annex II of the Directive in relation to urban development. During appraisal the Bank’s services will verify whether an EIA is required and the screening decision of the relevant authority. The procuring authority has set high requirements for the achievement of a sustainable development including: - A dedicated energy centre - Retention/ re-use of all landscaping material - Provision of a Sustainable Urban Drainage Scheme. The specific energy efficiency and renewable energy consumption targets will be verified during appraisal.
The project is being carried out as a PPP and the competitive dialogue process is being used. The Scottish Government’s Non-Profit Distributing procurement route is being implemented. The process was launched in the OJEU in June 2013 and is currently at the stage of two short listed bidders (Jan 2014). The Promoter is ensuring that contracts for the implementation of the project have been/shall be tendered in accordance with the relevant applicable EU procurement legislation (Dir 2004/18/EEC/ or 2004/17/EEC and Dir. 2007/66/EC), with publication of tender notices in the EU Official Journal, as and where appropriate.
