II.2.3)Place of performance
NUTS code: UK United Kingdom
II.2.4)Description of the procurement:

The framework has six (6) suppliers, as preferred partners to deliver the framework opportunities that might arise, which will allow for direct award (call off) and further competitions as required by the wider public sector.

The framework is intended to deliver a raft of energy efficient technologies, practices and demand reduction for the wider public sector. In addition, the asset management aspect will focus on the high-risk backlog maintenance across the wider public sector and will look to bring capability, finance, knowledge and experience of current and alternative means of ensuring backlog maintenance and assets in the public sector are appropriately addressed. This might include asset management in respect of; sterile services, theatres, radiology, wider backlog maintenance in the public sector for example. We do not envisage the operational management of these assets to be included in the scope of this framework, however maintenance on a reactive and a PPM basis might be included and possibly delivered by a third party under the management and contractual responsibility of the four intended framework preferred partners.

The trust is working with its subsidiary, known as Northumbria Healthcare Facilities Management Ltd, and EcoVate Group as strategic partners who have established the framework, future project pipeline and overall management of the framework and projects arising under the framework.

The incremental options that the framework will cover as the strategic energy and asset management framework, delivered by the framework providers will include:

Tri-generation, solar PV, battery and or energy storage, fuel cells, electric vehicle charging, associated medical facilities maintenance such as sterile services and or provision of relevant plant and equipment, energy from waste, bio fuels, anaerobic digestion, biogas, fuel supplies, combined heating and power, building fabric and associated estate plant management, boilers, heat pumps, heat recovery, chilling, water and effluent treatment and savings, STOR, electrical improvements, lighting, insulation and glazing. All to be explored during the competitive dialogue process to establish the framework.
