Description: To procure a contract for the provision of a search and rescue helicopter service to cover the entire UK search and rescue region. This will replace the Maritime and Coastguard Agency (MCA) contracted service, which runs to June 2017, and the Ministry of Defence (MOD) capability which is due to end in March 2016 when the Sea King fleet is due out of service. The UK Government is committed to a number of international agreements which require a national framework of search and rescue resources to be available within a geographically defined region, currently the service is jointly provided by the MOD at 8 bases and the MCA at 4 bases. The benefit of the service is to save lives.
