The West Midlands Combined Authority (WMCA) currently resources most of its Transport Planning requirements from Lot 2 of its Professional Services framework that expires in February 2020 alongside its rapid transit transport planning framework.

The purpose of this tender is to simplify the process by bringing the two elements together in one Framework Agreement, over a maximum term of four years, where consultants can apply to be included either for rapid transit only or for both transport planning and rapid transit. It is intended to qualify a minimum of six consultants across both areas of the framework.

Consultancy support through this Framework Agreement will be required to supplement the work of the in-house Transport Planning team. Qualified consultants will be required to be knowledgeable in current transport modelling and appraisal guidance and best practice in scheme development as well being sensitive to the economic, social, political and environmental climate that the WMCA operates within. Consultants will also be expected to understand the transport operation environment, local transport governance arrangements and the WMCA’s role within the transport sector.
