Section II: Object
Vehicle Telematics Hardware and Software Solutions
Crown Commercial Service is seeking to establish a framework agreement for the provision of vehicle telematics for Crown Bodies and other buyers identified at Section VI.3) of this notice.
This proposed agreement will replace the current RM3754 framework agreement. This new agreement will offer vehicle telematics products and services to help fleet managers improve the safety and efficiency of fleet operations.
The scope of the framework covers the United Kingdom of Great Britain and Northern Ireland.
Suppliers appointed to the framework will be responsible for the provision of:
a) vehicle telematics hardware, software and associated products;
b) data analysis and risk management solutions.
The full specification is set out in Framework Schedule 1 (Specification) which can be found in the attachments area of the event in the Bravo eSourcing suite.
The framework term is for an initial period of 24 months, with the option to extend by 2 further periods of 12 consecutive months.
Supply of Vehicle Telematics Hardware, Software and Associated Products
Supply of vehicle telematics hardware, software and associated products.
Suppliers on this lot will provide vehicle telematics hardware and software solutions for lease, hire or purchase. This includes the provision of associated products such as cameras and tracking solutions for equipment which are fixed or stored within a vehicle. Suppliers may offer supply only and supply and fit solutions.
A framework contract will be awarded to 15 bidders for this lot. The maximum number of bidders may increase where 2 or more bidders have tied scores in last position. We also reserve the right to award to any bidder whose final score is within 1 % of the last position of this lot.
Supply of Fleet Data Analysis and Risk Management Solutions
Suppliers on this lot will provide a single point of access software platform designed to enable buyers to analyse data from multiple sources in 1 place in order to support their fleet operation, optimise fleet whole life costs and undertake effective risk management activities. Sources of data may be connected or non-connected.
Connected data is typically real-time, dynamic data extracted from a vehicle or telematics equipment which provides vehicle or driver related information, such as vehicle GPS location or driver behaviour. Non-connected data is historical and typically obtained from sources such as a database. The data provides relevant contextual information to support fleet and risk management, for example information related to a driver's training record, licence checks or the number of penalty points they have incurred.
Suppliers will provide a software solution that:
— can integrate with multiple connected and non-connected data sources and systems, allowing buyers to access these data streams in 1 software hub,
— will aggregate and normalise data from multiple sources, enabling buyers to analyse driver behaviour and vehicle usage in order to effectively manage risk,
— is hardware agnostic, facilitating effective fleet management by the buyer across all vehicle and telematics hardware manufacturers.
For avoidance of doubt, suppliers on Lot 2 may not provide hardware.
A framework contract will be awarded to 20 bidders for this lot. The maximum number of bidders may increase where 2 or more bidders have tied scores in last position. We also reserve the right to award to any bidder whose final score is within 1 % of the last position of this lot.
