These suppliers will deliver energy efficiency services via a range of technical solutions that will provide guaranteed energy savings over the 4 year term of the call-off contract awarded under the framework.
The NDEE Framework covers NDEE retrofit in its broadest sense including a combination of building fabric, building environmental services systems and their control (e.g. heating, cooling, ventilation, lighting, water, etc.), and local energy generation (including combined heat and power systems, district heating systems and on-site renewables).The Framework is based upon an Energy Performance Contract (EnPC) with a savings guarantee capable of delivering on the basis of: (i) design and build; (ii) design, build and operate; or (iii) design, build, operate and finance. The aggregate value of projects using the NDEE Framework is estimated to be in the range of 250 000 000 GBP-300 000 000 GBP within the 4 year Framework term, split between projects funded via revenue and capital budgets.
The Scottish Government is now seeking to procure a Project Development Unit (PDU) to support users of this Framework. This will be a single supplier framework contract which will initially run for a period of 2 years with 2 possible 1 year extensions.
The role of the PDU will be to support users of the NDEE Framework to develop and tender for available services and support implementation of retrofit projects. The supplier must have the capacity to deliver the PDU services across all regions of Scotland including the Highlands and Islands. Core work areas of the NDEE PDU will include, but are not limited to:
i. Marketing and Outreach — ongoing promotion of Framework, establish positive relationships with clients and obtain formal sign up to Framework services.
ii. Project Preparation and Procurement — determine user specific requirements, develop business cases, advise on funding and financing opportunities and most appropriate procurement route, support procurement processes.
iii. Contract Management — facilitate the successful delivery of contracts, provide technical quality assurance and guidance, support achievement of high performance of NDEE Framework.
iv. Programme Support — maintain pipeline of projects, develop range of processes to support the PDU's activities, create a range of standardised documents and tool kits, develop monitoring framework.
v. Innovation — opportunity to develop new initiatives or ways of working that will improve the delivery of the NDEE Framework and NDEE PDU objectives.
