II.1.3)Type of contract
The National Flood and Coastal Erosion Risk Management (FCERM) Strategy for England (2011) states that the Environment Agency will develop and maintain national information on current and future risks arising from all sources of flooding and coastal erosion. The Environment Agency’s flood risk information underpins decision making in all parts of the business.
We presently have a National Flood Risk Assessment (NaFRA) tool that was created in 2002. After a review of requirements and aspirations for our approach to flood risk assessment, we have a strategic vision for a National Flood Risk Assessment 2 (NaFRA2) system to deliver a single, scalable assessment of flood risk that is available, trusted and used.

II.2.4)Description of the procurement:
Due to the nature of service being sought this will require specialist expertise in order to deliver the requirement. NaFRA2 will consist of 3 main components:
1) A New National Model — To fill in the gaps between local detailed models to give national coverage;
2) A Simulation Library – A flood hazard and impacts database. The Library can bring together both national and local modelling with other input data as required. The processed outputs are consistent across England and are stored in the Library. The outputs (including flood depth, duration, and hazard data) need to be accessible and easy to update;
3) A Processing Toolkit – The analysis tools to combine, query data and produce standard products (like Flood Zones). Outputs will be stored in the simulation library.
II.2.7)Duration of the contract, framework agreement or dynamic purchasing system
Subject to performance, the contract may be renewed in annual increments up to a total of 7 years., following a 4+1+1+1 model.
