The contracting authority is seeking to set up a framework of experienced service providers who can re-provide energy and energy management facilities and provide services (generated electricity, steam, heating and chilling) for Public bodies under the standard CEF performance contract – see www.carbonandenergyfund.net or the ITT for more information.
The contracting authority is seeking to set up a new framework of contractors that have the proven project management and technical track record and skill to deliver a number of projects under the framework. To meet the requirements of the framework service providers will be expected to demonstrate extensive experience of design, project management, installation, operation and maintenance of energy infrastructure plant such as CHP, biomass, pyrolysis, chilling, district heating, lighting, insulation and similar facilities for the onsite generation and conservation of electricity, and production and transmission of steam, heat and chilled water in public sector or similar sites. To this end, the contracting authority may accept consortia onto the framework if required in order to get the correct skill and experience mix.
This framework follows the successful initial framework established under 2011/S 23-037565 which has so far committed 30 projects and over £100m of investment into the NHS. The previous framework will cease to take new projects once this new framework is ready for its first project in July 2013.
All companies will be asked to participate in a mini-competition for each project.
In many cases the selected supplier will be expected to take over the existing energy facilities building/ boilerhouse or plant rooms relevant to the project, some under license and some under a simple lease, for the operational period of the contract. The selected suppliers will be expected to supply operational and maintenance support for the relevant plant and equipment, the details of which will be set out in the memorandum of information for each project. This may be extended to cover additional operation and maintenance of existing plant and equipment.
Projects may be multi-site and may be multiagency ( several public sector clients )
Selected suppliers must be able to deliver and guarantee the energy and energy management services to the relevant public bodies over the lifetime of the contract which are typically 15 to 30 years after practical completion.
