Approval of a Strategic Development Partner Framework for project development and Business Case Support for the TCF and other Programmes

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.
