The justification for a 4+2+2 (possible 8 years in total) length Framework, is due to the complexity of the proposed Framework Agreement, taking account of the national procurement policy around tackling climate change and given the nature of the service/product, to ensure customers can gain the maximum benefits from using the Framework without compromising the potential for open competition in the wider market. Wholesale electricity prices are currently at the highest ever and having a longer Framework, will allow for YPO to operate a much longer term purchasing strategy without the complexities of sleeving to another provider. A longer term purchasing strategy will mitigate risk for our customers and YPO will be able to provide them with longer term budget certainty in a volatile market. We have also considered that the majority of our customer have declared climate emergencies and have net zero targets of 2030 and beyond and the UK Government itself has a legally-binding target to reduce greenhouse gas emissions to net zero by 2050. Having a longer term partnership with an electricity Supplier in a framework format will support our customers on this journey, as one of the biggest contributors to carbon emissions is energy consumption. The collaborative approach with a Supplier for a longer period, will allow for support with reducing consumption/becoming more efficient, setting up effective power purchase agreements and potential for additional support on social value.
This Framework is designed to meet the needs of both YPO and Other Contracting Authorities by establishing an agreement where the end customer will enter into an electricity supply agreement with the Supplier and the Supplier will supply electricity, as well as any ancillary services that the customer requires, direct to the end customer. Any potential tenderers must have a commercial supply licence and listed on the OFGEM approved supplier list. ** PREVIEW NOTICE, please check Find a Tender for full details. ** YPO are purchasing on the behalf of other contracting authorities. Please see the below link for details: https://www.ypo.co.uk/about/customers/permissible-users . YPO will incorporate a standstill period at the point of notification of the award of the contract is provided to all bidders. The standstill period will be for a minimum of 10 calendar days, and provides time for unsuccessful tenderers to challenge the award decision before the contract is entered into. The Public Contracts Regulations 2015 provide for aggrieved parties who have been harmed or are at risk of harm by a breach of the rules to take action in the High Court (England, Wales and Northern Ireland).
