II.2.4)Description of the procurement:

The Mayor’s Transport Strategy (MTS) sets a target for 80 % of all journeys to be made on foot, by cycle or using public transport by 2041. Our ambition is to enable all Londoners to walk or cycle more to reduce car dependency, improve health, tackle inactivity and improve social inclusion and well-being.

TfL is seeking to appoint a service provider for the management of administration of TfL’s Walking and Cycling Grants Programme. The appointment will be for 3 years with the option to extend for a further 2 years.

The grants administrator must have proven experience of delivering community schemes and initiatives, an extensive network of community contacts and relationships in London, and a good understanding of the barriers and motivations to walking and cycling among under represented audiences in London. Grants will be awarded over a 3 year period, on a local (borough) basis to community projects, not for profit organisations and charitable organisations.

The grants administrator will manage:

— programme delivery from generating interest for applications to administering grants, providing support and reporting on programme delivery,

— training and support needs for grant recipients,

— selection, shortlisting and awarding of grants,

— mid-year and end of year reporting,

— enlisting a 3rd party to conduct an independent audit,

— end of year celebration event,

— the Community Ideas Hub to share projects that could be easily replicated by other groups in other parts of London.

The requirements stated above are subject to review and may be amended upon publication of this opportunity.

Estimated date for publication of OJEU Notice is 1.10.2019.

TfL request interested parties to submit their expression of interest to this PIN.
