Financial consultancy services. Peterborough City Council (the “Council”) has been awarded GBP 3.9 m by the Department of Energy and Climate Change (“DECC”) from the Green Deal Communities Fund (the “Funding”) to drive a Green Deal initiative in the City of Peterborough (the “City”) (the “Project”). The Council are seeking to utilise the Funding in combination with other sources of funding from Government energy efficiency incentive schemes, including ECO (Energy Companies Obligation) and the Green Deal Home Improvement Fund; loans provided to households by the Green Deal Finance Company, and any other appropriate energy efficiency Government funding sources or incentives that may become available during the term of the tendered agreement. The Council estimates that the Project will have a total value of approximately GBP 12 million to the appointed bidders.
Around 11,000 of the City’s most “hard to treat” properties (in its Gladstone, Millfield, New England and Eastfield areas (“Target Area”)) will be targeted because of their particularly poor construction. The main focus will be on private landlords, as the Target Area has a very high proportion of rented homes, although the scheme will be available to all households in the Target Area.
The Council expects to work with the appointed bidders in future on other domestic energy efficiency schemes in Peterborough City and beyond.
The Project will be driven by the Council through its performance of Green Deal Assessments of homes by its pre-appointed project manager, initially within the Target Area before expanding to other parts of the City. Following the delivery to residents of a Green Deal Assessment Report, it will be recommended to residents that they use the Council’s appointed bidders as the Green Deal Provider for delivering the finance and arranging installation of the measures.
Residents that choose to have Green Deal Measures installed will be given a voucher, which they can put towards the cost of the measures. The value of the voucher can be redeemed by the customer from the Council.
As part of marketing the Project, the Council will be running a promotion that will result in the development of ten show-homes within the Target Area for which Green Deal has been delivered; and a further 90 homes within the Target Area will receive free Green Deal Assessments (paid for by the Council). Alongside the voucher, the marketing Council’s approach is expected to generate significant interest in Green Deal within the Target Area; and in the City more widely.

VI.3)Additional information

This contract is not regulated by the Directive or the Regulations. PCC does not consider itself bound by either the Directive or the Regulations in relation to the award of this contract. The publication of a Contract Notice in respect of this opportunity is being undertaken by PCC on a voluntary basis. Any references to the Directive or the Regulations in the Contract Notice, the ITT or any other tender documents should be read with this in mind.
PCC reserves the right not to award all/any of the services forming part of this Green Deal Provider Framework Agreement and/or the right to make more than one contract award under this procurement to different service providers.
Points II.3 and II.4 refer to a framework agreement, the framework agreement that will be established does not constitute a framework agreement under the Directive or Regulations.
Point I.4 – PCC intends to establish a contractual arrangement for itself which will primarily be within the administrative area of PCC. However the contract may also extend to other local government and public related organisations and associated partners within the UK borders. PCC currently undertakes services for other local government and public organisations and would wish to expand working relationships through their selected partner with other local authorities, public bodies and their associated partners across the UK (and their statutory successors and organisations created as a result of re-organisation or organizational changes).
Point II.1.9 – variants will be accepted in addition to a standard compliant bid (as set out in the tender documents) providing PCC’s core requirements are met and provided they are in accordance with the tender documents. Variant bids will be considered in cases where the bidder can offer ECO Funding. It will not be scored unless the need arises to separate two bidders that have both submitted variant bids and are closely matched.
Points II.2.2 and II.3 – It is possible that the term of any contracts or agreements flowing from this Green Deal Provider Frame Work Agreement extend beyond this period.

If you experience any technical difficulties please contact the Delta eSourcing Helpdesk on call +44 8452707050 or email helpdesk@delta-esourcing.comPoint IV.1.1 – while PCC is basing this tender process on a process similar to the restricted procedure provided for in the Directive and the Regulations, it does not consider itself bound by the provisions regarding that procedure and reserves the right to depart from the restricted procedure as provided for in the Directive and the Regulations at any time. PCC therefore anticipates adopting a procedure (similar to but not identical to the negotiated procedure i.e. a “Restricted Procurement”). This approach should not be confused with the restricted procedure in either the Directive or the Regulations.
Point IV.3.4 – requests to participate in the tender require the completion and return of the ITT by noon on 13.6.2014 in accordance with the requirements set out in the ITT.
