Section II: Object of the contract

II.1)Description

II.1.1)Title attributed to the contract by the contracting authority:

Tender for The Provision of Vehicle Telemetrics Related Hardware and Associated Services.

II.1.2)Type of contract and location of works, place of delivery or of performance

Services
Service category No 7: Computer and related services
Main site or location of works, place of delivery or of performance: Primarily within the South West Region of the UK however may expand depend on operational application.

NUTS code UKK

II.1.3)Information about a public contract, a framework agreement or a dynamic purchasing system (DPS)

The notice involves the establishment of a framework agreement

II.1.4)Information on framework agreement

Framework agreement with a single operator

Duration of the framework agreement

Duration in years: 6
Justification for a framework agreement, the duration of which exceeds four years: It is envisaged that the contract will commence in 2015 and run for an initial period of 4 years with an option to extend the duration of this contract up to an aggregate maximum extension of 2 years. Each individual extension shall be for a minimum period of 6 months and shall be for the period notified in writing. The notice will be given within one month prior to the end of the initial term of the contract or if already previously extended, prior to the end of the most recent extension.
The Justification for this term exceeding the usual 4 years is due to the anticipated average retention time of vehicles within the force being circa six years meaning that it would be counter productive to install units into vehicles which would take 12 months minimum to obtain baseline data for that vehicle only to have to then replace with an alternative unit before its anticipated end of life.

Estimated total value of purchases for the entire duration of the framework agreement

Estimated value excluding VAT:
Range: between 1 000 000 and 10 000 000 GBP

II.1.5)Short description of the contract or purchase(s)

The Force requires a commercial of the shelf (COTS) Single platform with modular functionality to deliver an open and scalable fleet asset tracking capability via a web based secure access portal and associated hardware to be installed within force vehicles. At its core, the solution will provide three levels of functionality; Telemetrics, Enhanced Telemetrics and Satellite Navigation. It is anticipated that the platform will offer additional benefits such as improved command and control (C2), situational awareness (SA), targeted training and reduced Road Safety Risks. Accurate and dynamic business information is a critical deliverable to enable decision support to improve fleet safety, efficiency and thus Value for Money. Software As A Service (SAAS) will give scalable back office functionality for regional fleet collaboration and comparison.
It should be noted that the framework will be awarded to a single provider for all SAAS and hardware provision.
The Solution must be one of modular and scalable functionality that allows operational demands to dictate which functionality “modules” are needed to fulfil the particular capability gap and to have the flexibility to add, subtract, or amend which modules are fitted in the vehicles.
To be clear this means that the solution will operate effectively when utilising:
‘telemetric’ functionality only;
‘telemetric’ and ‘enhanced telemetric’ Functionality;
‘telemetric’ and ‘SAT.NAV.’ functionality; and/or
‘telemetric’, ‘enhanced telemetric’ and ‘SAT.NAV.’ Functionality.
Without affecting the efficacy and function of the system provided.

II.1.6)Common procurement vocabulary (CPV)

32441300 – FB03 – MA07 – JA07, 32441100 – JA07, 32440000 – MA07 – FB03, 32441000 – MA07 – FB03

II.1.7)Information about Government Procurement Agreement (GPA)

The contract is covered by the Government Procurement Agreement (GPA): yes

II.1.8)Lots

This contract is divided into lots: no

II.1.9)Information about variants

Variants will be accepted: no
II.2)Quantity or scope of the contract

II.2.1)Total quantity or scope:

The Force(s) in question have varied fleet requirements and as such the anticipated demand will vary both inter and intra Force, as the functionality they require from the solution will be determined by operational demands not the capability of the vehicle. It is likely that ‘Bluelight Capability’ vehicles will require a greater level of telemetric capability than the ‘Non-Bluelight’ capable vehicles.
The Force(s) will require a degree of flexibility within the solution offered, as it will need to meet the changing needs of the Force(s). This should be borne in mind when developing responses. It should therefore be noted that the Force(s) will not accept any ‘minimum order quantity’ requirements under this Framework as the ability to procure additional singular units and associated support may be required in order to allow for the replacement of damaged equipment or if the ‘Total Fleet Requirement’ (TFR) changes beyond it’s current status due to unforeseen circumstances.
Estimated value excluding VAT:
Range: between 1 000 000 and 10 000 000 GBP
