• support delivery of planned behavioural change at scale;

It is the WMCA's intention to make this framework accessible to other local authorities and organisations in the UK. Please refer to the individual Lot descriptions at II.2.4) for further details.
The framework itself is comprised of 5 Lots, each of which will be detailed within this notice.
As this is a framework agreement it is not known at this stage what the aggregate value of spend will be across the various lots. The figure given below is an estimate of WMCA spend over 4 years for tendering purposes only, please note that WMCA cannot be held to this figure.
Evidence Based Travel Demand Management
It is expected that the successful service providers on Lot 1 will work closely with the WMCA to develop, deliver and monitor a range of travel demand management strategies.
It is WMCA's intention to make the framework available to other local authorities in the UK. This will consist of the following (but not limited to):
— all county councils, borough and district councils and unitary authorities throughout England, Northern Ireland, Scotland and Wales
— all those bodies listed in Statutory Instrument 2014/2234 — The Whole of Government Accounts (Designation of Bodies) Order 2014, http://www.legislation.gov.uk/uksi/2014/2234/schedule/made including future bodies as well as bodies being established as a result of re-organisations, and any subsequent order(s) should the 2014 Orders be collectively or individually repealed. For the avoidance of doubt, this shall include, but not be limited to, all local authorities and all integrated transport authorities including those not listed in the 2014 Orders but who are members of the urban transport group as currently listed under https://www.urbantransportgroup.org/about-us/our-members

Private entities/companies that are not bound by public procurement regulation, and that are not classed as ‘contracting authorities’ under the PCR 2015 may also access this framework if required.
No funding is currently confirmed, but during the lifetime of the framework there could be potential for a number of funding workstreams to call off the framework. These may include (but are not limited to) European Union (EU), Sport England, Emergency Active Travel Fund (EATF) and the Department for Transport (DfT). WMCA cannot guarantee the award of specific work as funding is being secured.
Amongst other requirements, the successful providers will be expected to deliver sustainable travel and behavioural change projects and strategies based on areas of working with stakeholders, local authorities, transport operators and other partners.
— all those bodies listed in Statutory Instrument 2014/2234 — The Whole of Government Accounts (Designation of Bodies) Order 2014, http://www.legislation.gov.uk/uksi/2014/2234/schedule/made including future bodies as well as bodies being established as a result of re-organisations, and any subsequent order(s) should the 2014 Orders be collectively or individually repealed.
