19/11/2021 - Approval of a Strategic Development Partner Framework for project development and Business Case Support for the TCF and other Programmes ref: 1123    Recommendations Approved

To provide a framework of professional services consultants for the TCF Programme across a number of workstreams to progress schemes through to completion of the Full Business Case and beyond.

The previous two procurement exercises for business case support up to Outline Business Case have been for a single supplier with the contract sitting with the Combined Authority but with support being utilised by Partners for their schemes throughout this contract.

Due to various requirements needed for the detail at Full Business Case and beyond and also capacity/technical requirements needed for the next stages of the TCF projects it was felt a multi supplier framework would better meet the requirements of the Programme.

A compliant Procurement Exercise was undertaken through the Combined Authority’s Dynamic Purchasing System to tender for a
preferred supplier.

Decision Maker: Managing Director

Decision published: 25/11/2021

Effective from: 19/11/2021

Decision:

To approve the set-up of a Professional Services Consultancy Framework to provide business case support for projects within the TCF and other Combined Authority Transport programmes following a procurement exercise with the tender reference CA1550

The framework is for a value of up to £20m with an initial two year term with two 12 month optional extensions to be applied annually up to a maximum contract term of four years. It is envisaged the Framework contracts will commence on or after the 30 November 2021.

The individual call-off contracts may be subject to key decision notices through the Combined Authority’s project assurance and approvals processes.
