The National Transport Authority (“the Authority”) seeks submissions from
suitable consultants to carry out certain tasks related to Strategic Environmental
Assessment and Appropriate Assessment of the Transport Strategy for the
Greater Dublin Area (GDA) 2015-2035, in accordance with the requirements of
Directive 2001/42/EC of the European Parliament and Council of 27th June 2001
on the assessment of the effects of certain plans and programmes on the
environment (known as the SEA Directive) and Directive 92/43/EEC, known as
the Habitats Directive.
The Authority has undertaken both SEA and AA of a number of regional-scale
transport plans for the GDA in the past and will make use of this work in the
assessment of the new transport strategy, where appropriate. As such, the
Authority does not require the standard set of tasks normally associated with
SEA and AA, rather an update of work done in the past and its application to the
new strategy. To this end, the Authority is seeking tenders based on daily rates.
