Executive summary

The London Plan Policy 5.2 requires developers to submit an energy strategy. Each energy strategy is assessed by the GLA’s in-house energy planning officer, supported by consultants, who provide up to 4 days per week specialist energy engineering advice.

The current consultancy support contract expires on 31st March 2014. In order to provide on-going consultancy support, approval is sought to procure consultancy services to continue this support for the period from 1st April 2014 to 31st March 2018 up to a maximum value of £440,000. Approval is also required to vary and extend the current contract with AECOM (Contract: TfL90001 Task: 114) to ensure continued provision of specialist support while procurement for the new contract takes place. Budget for this extension would come out of the total £440,000. Should any delays occur during the procurement process it may be necessary to undertake another contract variation to ensure continued consultancy support until the new contract starts.

The new contract will be let by way of a mini competition under the Engineering and Project Management Framework let by TfL under the environmental services section.
