VI.3)Additional information:

Grand Union Housing Group is seeking to put in place an OJEU compliant Framework Agreement for the procurement of electricity and natural gas to provide themselves and other eligible contracting authorities with a compliant route to market, giving due consideration to the unique market conditions and pricing mechanisms. The Framework has been developed to deliver lower energy prices for Framework Buyers, by enabling them to strategically time the placement of their energy contracts, and to capitalise on opportunities presented by price volatility as well as economies due to increased competition.

Grand Union has appointed Trident Utilities to issue the Contract Notice; administrate the Framework on their behalf and assist in the formulation of the ITT; responding to clarification requests; the evaluation of tender responses and Supplier selection. Trident will also register all users wishing to use the Framework; maintain detailed records of the Call-Off Contracts awarded; monitor ongoing Supplier Performance and Customer Satisfaction Levels and assist Framework Buyers with the Mini-Competition award process for Calling Off Contracts.

The proposed Framework Agreement has several committed future participants who are contracting authorities in the Social Housing and Education sectors, with other contracting authorities having expressed an interest in potentially using the Framework in the future.

The contracting authorities who are eligible to use the Framework Agreement fit into the following categories and can be identified by following the relevant links that follow:
