The West Midlands Combined Authority (WMCA) wishes to procure a market research online community platform and the associated consultancy services from a suitable supplier for the remaining future transport zone funding period (i.e. until March 2023). The long-term aspiration is to retain the platform beyond this period and therefore, it is expected that the successful supplier agrees to a transition from a community (fully managed by the successful supplier) towards a self-service community managed by transport for West Midlands (TfWM, part of the WMCA) where the supplier will expect, as a minimum, just fixed/licence costs for the platform use, to be payable annually.
