Description

Cornwall Council is seeking to procure an Electric Vehicle (EV) charge point solution Supplier to provide a fully managed service under a 4-year EV infrastructure framework with a £30,000,000 ceiling. The single supplier Framework will cover the supply and installation of chargers, as well as the operation and maintenance of installed charge points via 10-year (plus 5-year optional extension) contracts. It will also provide an option for the Single supplier to self-fund or co-fund charge points on Cornwall Council land.

The Council are seeking to procure this framework agreement via an Open Tender Procedure and in accordance with the Public Contract Regulations 2015. The Framework will provide the opportunity for the Single successful Supplier:

1. To supply, install, operate and maintain EV charge points for Cornwall Council.

2. To self-fund, build, own and operate charge points on Cornwall Council land.

3. (As an option) to operate and maintain the Council’s legacy charge points.

The Framework will allow Cornwall Council to appoint the supplier to manage charge points on the Council’s behalf through 10-year (plus 5-year optional extension) Operation and Maintenance contracts, which the Council will enter into as required.

The Council expects to contract with the supplier to supply and install at least 150 European Regional Development Fund (ERDF) grant-funded charge points during the 2022-23 financial year, at the value of £2,874,500 inclusive of a 10-year operation and maintenance concession.

The Council expects most of the ERDF charge points to be deployed in Council-owned public car parks. The specific charge point locations will be identified by Cornwall Council working with the supplier based on likely customer demand/profitability, availability of electrical supply, cost of installation, connectivity, location suitability and strategic requirement.

Further Grant and/or Council-funded Charge Point Solution Call-offs for both public and fleet/workplace charge point installs are being considered. However, no further detail on the scale and/or nature of prospective call-offs are available at this time.

The Council will be seeking a supplier willing to make a financial commitment to invest in self-funding commercially viable charge points either on Cornwall Council land and/or in on-street locations. The scale of the proposed investment and the level of alignment with the Council’s strategic priorities will be a consideration when awarding the Contract.

The specification found in the procurement documents sets out two options; bidders may choose to submit a tender for either option.

Option 1 – Cornwall Council’s Mandatory Requirements
Under Option 1, the bidder will tender to:

1. Supply, install, operate and maintain grant funded and/or Cornwall Council funded charge points as specified in Task Orders issued as required by the Council.

2. Self-fund, or co-fund with Cornwall Council, additional charge points to be installed on Council-owned land and/or on-street locations by mutual agreement of the bidder and the Council.

Option 2 – Cornwall Council’s Mandatory and Desirable Requirements

1. Supply, install, operate and maintain grant funded and/or Cornwall Council funded charge points as specified in Task Orders issued as required by the Council (Mandatory).

3. Operate and maintain Cornwall Council’s legacy public and workplace charge points by mutual agreement of the Council and the bidder (Desirable).

Whilst the Council will consider tender submissions for Option 1 (Mandatory Requirements only), the ability for bidders to deliver the full scope via an Option 2 submission is considered desirable.
