BEIS publish tender for electrification of Heat Demonstration Project contract

8 August 2019

The Department for Business, Energy and Industrial Strategy (BEIS) have published a tender for The Electrification of Heat Demonstration Project. 

Project Description:

The Electrification of Heat Demonstration Project aims to demonstrate the feasibility of a large-scale rollout of heat pumps in Great Britain and install them in a representative range of homes, alongside new products and services designed to overcome the barriers to deployment.

BEIS is seeking to appoint a Management Contractor to provide overall programme management of the project and manage, monitor and coordinate three Delivery Contractors on behalf of BEIS; working closely with them to develop a shared approach to participant recruitment and leading the design of the home suitability surveys, installation and monitoring processes, collating and managing data, and disseminating the project findings.

For background information, the full specification and further information on this project please see the ITT. This contract is for an initial period of 29 months, with the possibility of an extension of up to a further 24 months, in order to continue monitoring of properties. 

The contracting authority considers that this contract may be suitable for economic operators that are small or medium enterprises (SMEs). However, any selection of tenderers will be based solely on the criteria set out for the procurement.

There is a possibility that the contract could be extended for up to a further 36 months in order to continue monitoring of properties. The possibility of extension will be at BEIS’s discretion and will depend on BEIS budgetary and approval processes, as well as best value for money considerations (including, without limitation, successful completion of the existing contract scope).

The contract services document appears on the EU Tenders Elecronic Daily here, and all procurement documents are available for unrestricted and full direct access on Delta E-Sourcing. Tenders must be submitted electronically via Delta eSourcing
