What is Technology Products & Associated Services 2?

Written by

|

Nov 18, 2022

The Technology Products and Services 2 Framework aims to provide Public Sector buyers with a simple, flexible and efficient way to purchase technology products and associated services.


This includes, but is not limited to:

  • Laptops
  • Desktops
  • Mobile phone
  • Printers and scanners
  • Servers
  • Storage disposal
  • Refurbished/repurposed devices
  • Off-the-shelf software and associated services

This is a Crown Commercial Services (CCS) Framework, available to all public sector buyers from across the UK. Established in 2022, this now replaces the current Technology Products and Associated Services (TePAS) Framework but will offer the same range of products and services. With a big focus on sustainability, the new government framework is intended to allow buyers to buy products and services from resellers and original equipment manufacturers (OEMs) in an environmentally conscious and cost-effective manner.

Technology Products and Services 2 is projected to have the same overall spend as the previous version of the framework, at around £8bn. TePAS, which ran from 2019 and is due to end in December 2023, has allowed buyers to select products and solutions from 40 suppliers across 4 Lots. Over 60% of suppliers on the previous framework are SMEs.

However, as per recent market engagement activities, the Lot structure has been altered to encompass 8 Lots, instead of the previous 4.

AIMS OF THE FRAMEWORK

Offering a ‘one-stop shop’ for customers, the new framework aims to provide a complete range of technology products and services for various purchase models. It also seeks to simplify the customer experience, enabling sustainability by providing end-to-end services for the lifecycle of technology products.

As per the announcement at the Market Engagement session at the end of October, the timeline for this procurement exercise is as follows:

Buyers for the current framework purchase a wide variety of products through further competitions, spanning items such as desktop computers, tablets and laptops through to Microsoft Office software suites and encryption software for high security buyers such as the MoD. Due to the change in Lot structure, there are additional requirements for TePAS 2, including Education and Healthcare-specific technology products and a specific Lot for refurbished IT hardware and disposal.

WHAT DO I NEED TO CONSIDER WHEN BIDDING FOR FRAMEWORKS SUCH AS TECHNOLOGY PRODUCTS AND SERVICES 2?

Based on what we know about the previous TePAS Framework, we can expect the new framework to last 4 years. Each previous iteration of this framework has had a strong focus on accessibility for SME suppliers, and it is anticipated that Technology Products and Services 2 will be no different.

As the documentation for this iteration has yet to be formally released and market engagement is currently ongoing, the full details of this framework are not yet publicly available. As with all large government frameworks, the application process can be intensive to ensure the suitability of suppliers.

Tender documentation is expected to be released in February 2023, as per the timeframe given during the Market Engagement event, when the number of suppliers sought per Lot should also be announced. As with all frameworks, winning a place on them doesn’t automatically guarantee work from it. However, it is still a great way to secure a pipeline of work.

As part of your bid, you’ll almost certainly be required to complete a mandatory Standard Selection Questionnaire document which is split into three parts:

Part 1 - This covers basic information about you, including contact details, trade memberships, details of any parent companies and group bidding

Part 2 - This covers a self-declaration to confirm whether any of the exclusion grounds apply. For example, fraud or corruption

Part 3 - This covers a self-declaration to confirm that you meet the selection criteria in respect of financial standing and technical capacity

Part 3 will cover things such as:

  • Economic and Financial Standing - CCS will ask for evidence to demonstrate your financial stability. This is usually in the form of accounts
  • Technical and Professional Ability - You’ll need to provide Case Studies of your experience in providing the required services/products. Any information around KPIs, testimonials, volumes of work you currently deliver are key to this section
  • Insurance levels – These are usually set out at £5 million, as a minimum, for Employers’, Public and Professional Liability

From what we know about CCS Frameworks, holding a valid and current Cyber Essentials Certificate is also an essential requirement. This must be either a Cyber Essentials Basic Certificate or the Cyber Essentials Plus Certificate. From the previous iteration, suppliers on Lot 4 for Information Assured Products are also required to be List X accredited.

The qualitative score will be assessed through a number of written questions. From what we've seen from other recent CCS IT procurement, these are likely to be tightly character limited. Their preference lately has been to use questions which provide detailed guidance and specific sub-criteria to answer which against the character counts, mean that conciseness is key. Addressing all criteria sufficiently is also a must to score highly meaning that detail is important, as is evidence (even if the room is restricted for this).

There will of course also be some form of pricing schedule or catalogue to complete, though all of this, and the precise weightings for each will be apparent upon Framework launch

So that you’re in the best possible position to complete your bid when the application process opens, it’s important to get this information in place now.

HOW THE FRAMEWORK WILL OPERATE (ONCE AWARDED)

Previously, with TePAS, the process to secure work through the Framework was through further competition, although we don’t expect this to be altered significantly, there could be new additions to the types of questions asked.

With Social Value becoming on even bigger focus within public sector tendering, TePAS 2 is looking to reflect this by announcing at their recent market engagement event plans to reflect current government Procurement Policy Notes and social value themes including combatting climate change, tackling economic inequality, providing equal opportunities and wellbeing.

Whilst we await the official requirements and scoring for TePAS 2, due February 2023 as per the Market Engagement event, we can look to the previous iteration for guidance as to what can be expected in terms of criteria. TePAS used a relatively uncommon scoring system, whereby the weighting of the quality and pricing submissions were changeable dependent upon the further competition requirements. Thus individual buyers on the framework could decide to evaluate pricing as being worth anywhere between 10% to 100% of the total score for example.

Previously, the quality submission had been scored using these criteria:

  • Quality and further product discretion
  • Buyer service and satisfaction
  • Logistics and delivery capabilities
  • Goods and service fitness for people
  • Understanding buyer needs
  • Associated services as described within the Lot

Looking at these areas, there are things that companies who wish to bid can do right now to get ahead and prepare for the formal release of TePAS2. Creating key elements such as method statements or organisational charts and making sure critical documents such as CVs and case studies are up to date and relevant to this framework will save both time and resources further down the line.

BID WRITING SUPPORT FOR TECHNOLOGY PRODUCTS AND SERVICES 2

Whilst the specifics of the Technology Products and Services 2 requirements are yet to be confirmed, there are several areas that Thornton & Lowe can support you with now so that once the tender is released, you are in the best position to win work. This could include reviewing your current/previous content, supporting you to compile key information and evidence, conducting targeted research or reviewing/improving your bid process to ensure that you can get the most from the available time.

Smart Infrastructure Pilot Programme
UK Irvine North Ayrshire Council

In a landmark initiative set to propel North Ayrshire into the future of digital infrastructure, North Ayrshire Council (“NAC”) has embarked on a Smart Infrastructure Pilot Programme (“SIPP”). This pioneering project is driven by a grant of approximately GBP 242K from the Department for Science Innovation and Technology (“DSIT”) as part of a 'Smart Infrastructure' Pilot. The grant will support the rollout of innovative PAS 191:2023 capable innovative smart multi-purpose poles that will redefine NAC’s urban landscape. NAC will supplement the grant by 20K for operation and maintenance, taking the overall project value to GBP 262,765.The SIPP is a pivotal component of DSITs Advanced Wireless Innovation Strategy. The strategy aims to be a catalyst for economic growth, connectivity enhancement, and the promotion of sustainable practices. This strategic investment will enable the procurement of state-of-the-art multi-purpose poles, in place of traditional single-use street furniture for a more versatile and sustainable infrastructure that supports a multiple use case ecosystem.Central to this endeavour is the Maritime Mile, the route from the Irvine train station to Irvine Beach Park, where the aim is to transform the area into a national waterfront destination. The Maritime Mile is one component of the ‘Great Harbour’ – a transformation of the waterfront in Irvine, North Ayrshire. The Great Harbour is a key component of the GBP 251m Ayrshire Growth Deal and is one of the most ambitious and transformational regeneration tourism proposals for the region. This significant investment is intended to regenerate the waterfront, turning it into a hub of transformational tourism and an exemplar of modern Smart Connected Places.Structured around key use cases such as CCTV/security, movement detection, waste detection, and the enhancement of visitor and business connectivity, the project is also poised to consider the integration of EV charging points and augmented reality experiences in the future. NAC’s forward-thinking approach paints a future where the power of advanced wireless connectivity smartens public services and puts Smart Connected Places at the core of urban development.

The AR experience will form part of the Cambridgeshire Open RAN Ecosystem (CORE) project that is funded by the Department for Science Innovation and Technology (DSIT) and being delivered by a number of commercial and academic partners in collaboration with Cambridgeshire County Council as the Project Lead. The primary purpose of the CORE project is to deploy and demonstrate the capabilities of Open RAN technology within a standalone 5G network in High Demand Density locations.The Authority, as part of the CORE project, require a bespoke venue specific Augmented Reality (AR) experience to be delivered and deployed at the Cambridge Corn Exchange that will run over the 5G Open RAN network that is being developed by the CORE project. The AR experience has a dual purpose within the project to firstly test the capabilities of a 5G Open RAN network utilising the data intensive/low latency requirements of AR technology and secondly to demonstrate how 5G Open RAN technology can support innovative technologies to generate new opportunities for a local economy.In order for the AR experience to demonstrate value to the local economy it is essential that the experience is bespoke to the venue. The AR experience will need to be designed, developed and deployed in collaboration with Cambridge City Council who own and run the venue. It will also be vital for the successful bidder to work with the already assigned technical partners to ensure that the AR hardware/experience is successfully integrated/deployed on the 5G network and to support the testing/optimisation of the network capabilities through the use of the AR experience.The theme of the AR experience will be to celebrate the Cambridge Corn Exchange entering its 150th year.Output requirements include the following:• A bespoke AR experience that will help celebrate the 150th anniversary of the Cambridge Corn Exchange. Deployable on the main ground floor (the venue layout can be found in appendix 1) by end December 2024.• Easily deployable and removable experience that can be set-up, run and removed within a day. The experience will run on dates/times to be agreed by Cambridge City Council that fit in-between the other planned events at the venue.• Integration of the AR experience hardware on to the 5G network that is being developed.• Verbal and/or written data/reports on the performance of the AR experience in different operational environments and advice on how to utilise the experience to support testing.• Maintenance and operational support of the AR experience must be included for the duration of the contract.• AR capable hardware to deliver the experience.The testing of the 5G Open RAN network capabilities utilising the AR experience is a key outcome of the procurement. The ability to support the integration of the AR hardware on to the network and scale up and down the number of devices/data download and upload will play a key component in understanding the network and its ability to optimise in different scenarios.The Supplier will need to be able to articulate how AR hardware can be operated over a 5G network, this may vary from device to device, and provide guidance on how AR experience can be used to test the capabilities of the network. The supplier will additionally need experience of commercialising an AR experience.With this in mind, the successful bidder must be able to demonstrate the following:• Experience of the technical requirements and processes of integrating various AR capable hardware on to a 5G network including upload, download & latency requirements.• Experience of supporting the testing of 5G networks capabilities utilising AR hardware. Previous working or reporting on government funded R&D projects would be an advantage.• Examples of working on previous bespoke AR content creation and the processes that were followed to create the exp

Invitation to Tender - QED-Morlais 76 Tidal Turbine Power Take-Off
UK Edinburgh QED Naval Ltd

QED Naval is an innovative company specialising in tidal energy technology. The company has developed disruptive technology that can be applied globally. This includes our self-deploying, submersible tidal platform, the Subhub Industrial Demonstrator (ID), that is proven to work efficiently and reliably with our subsidiary company Tocardo’s horizontal axis tidal turbines.The Torcardo T-3 is the next generation in Torcardo’s turbine series, with the previous iterations being used in the Oosterscheldekering storm surge barrier. The design prides itself on simplicity and reliability whilst maintaining effective tidal energy capture. The turbine has a 14m blade diameter, a passive bidirectional pitch system, and uses a split winding permanent magnetic synchronous generator.QED’s next generation of Subhub ID will feature 3 of Tocardo’s turbine-generator pairs, which will be individually controlled and then combined into a single grid output within the Subhub ID’s dry compartments under water.QED Naval is looking for a supplier to provide the various power take-off circuitry to support this delivery of grid compliant power from the Subhub Platform Control Unit (SPCU) into the National Grid at distribution level.The solution will accommodate 3 independently controlled T-3 turbines, each with a power rating of 350 kW and generator output voltage of 690 V. Each generator’s PTO solution will be housed in a standard double electrical cabinet with dimensions 2000 x 1200 x 600 mm (excluding the shared transformer) if possible. The cabinets will be held within the SPCU. The SPCU consists of two sealed pressure hulls that have an inner diameter of 3 m and a length of 10 m. The solution will be supplied fully assembled and complying with necessary electrical standards. A supporting single line drawing of the complete system should also be provided.This tender requires the delivery of a single turbine-generator PTO configuration in 2024 for testing before the remaining 2 PTO configurations are delivered to complete the Subhub ID arrangement for subsea deployment. The successful delivery of the tender described in this document could establish a relationship for future plans that include the initial extension from one Subhub ID to a mini-array of five (totalling 5 MW) followed by additional phases to a maximum array size of 30 MW.

There is also the opportunity to add Pipeline Sites and Wider Estate to the Programme as detailed under 5- Scope of the ITT.<br/><br/> <br/>The Solar PV and Battery Storage Programme (“SPVBS Programme”) is set up in three phases: Phase 1 NEC4 Term Services Contract (“NEC4 TSC for Phase 1”) for the survey, design and costing works, Phase 2 NEC4 Engineering and Construction Contract (“NEC4 ECC for Phase 2”) for the installation works and Phase 3 NEC4 Term Services Contract (“NEC4 TSC for Phase 3”) for the ongoing maintenance services. <br/><br/> <br/>Following approval of the design and costing carried out in Phase 1 in relation to each Designated Site and/or Pipeline Site and/or Wider Estate, WSCC may then proceed to appoint the Contractor to carry out the installation of the equipment at that Site under Phase 2 and maintenance of the Equipment at that Site under Phase 3, in accordance with the relevant Contract Terms and Conditions as set out in Document 03 (Contract Terms and Conditions). <br/><br/> <br/>WSCC is under no obligation to award a contract under Phase 2 and/or Phase 3 in respect of any Designated Site and/or Pipeline Site and/or Wider Estate that is subsequently incorporated into the Programme. <br/><br/> <br/>The Works, as further described in Document No. 2 (The Specification) are being tendered by WSCC in accordance with WSCC’s Standing Orders on Procurement and Contracts and the Public Contracts Regulations 2015 (PCR 2015). <br/><br/>This is the only programme in place for delivering retrofit roof-top solar PV and ‘Behind the Meter’ Battery Energy Storage Systems (BESS) across WSCC’s estate. The contract value (of up to £23m) therefore allows all remaining corporate sites and schools in the Wider Estate, in West Sussex, to be approached to register their interest in being surveyed and if found suitable to be brought into the SPVBS Programme over the Contract Period. <br/><br/> <br/>Following a market engagement exercise and technical and structural feasibility surveys completed by WSCC’s multi-disciplinary contractor (MDC), AtkinsRealis (AR), 23 corporate and 56 school sites including Pipeline Sites (see Document No. 09 Asset List) have been identified to date as suitable for having Solar PV and, where suitable, BESS technology installations. <br/><br/> <br/>All 56 schools registered their interest in having Solar PV, and where suitable, BESS installed. Of the 56 schools, 38 have formally committed to participating in the Programme (subject to the outcome of the Phase 1 detailed surveys) via a formal Letter of Intent (“LOI”).

For the software contract, the contract will possess an initial term 10 years (120 months), with extension options of 3 years (36 months) and 2 years (24 months) respectively; this provides a maximum duration of 15 years (180 months).The estimated contract value for the system integration services (TDP) contract is £100m - £115m, whilst the estimated contract value for the software agreement is £355m - £385m.Suppliers are asked to familiarise themselves with the structure of the CPN, which will be applied within this procurement as follows:Stage 1: Suppliers are asked to complete the Standard Selection Questionnaire (SQ), which will constitute a request to participate in this procurement process.
