Procurement

OJEU Compliant Frameworks



External Wall Insulation

Since the introduction of ECO funding in early 2013, landlords have been working to establish the real value and cost of this opportunity.

Our members are tasked to evidence best value in every procurement activity and the scale of external wall insulation programmes brings the requirement to be OJEU compliant for many of them.


Meeting this challenge, the CSA has designed a regional framework for the south of the United Kingdom which enables landlords to simply match schemes with competent contractors and material systems.

This framework allows landlords to evidence best value from an open tender process that is fully compliant with European tendering requirements and take comfort that the products used comply with OFGEM standards, allowing them to trade carbon under the terms of ECO funding. Having a term of 5 years, the framework will enable delivery by landlords throughout the current ECO timetable and move into what is likely to become ECO phase 2 beyond 2015.

The framework also supports the wider objectives of the CSA in joining up the pieces between planning, funding and delivery of our ‘Carbon Challenge’.

Renewable Heat Incentive

With the recent publication of DECC’s RHI tariffs, planning can now commence to consider large scale renewable heating programmes.

The RHI initiative is designed to meet the challenge of on-going gas supplies in the UK and encourage a shift towards new technology, reducing our reliance on fossil fuels.


Linking this RHI tariff to existing heating programmes can, in the right application, bring about a valuable change for both residents and business planning.

The CSA is currently preparing a framework contract for technology and contractors linking together to provide an OJEU compliant framework for landlords. This will be in place by early 2014.

Photovoltaic

With an OJEU compliant framework in place for high quality ‘tier 1’ panels, landlords can move from planning to delivery in weeks rather than years, ensuring the optimum business can be maintained.


Currently a typical 3kw domestic system can be installed for less than £5,000 - a full 40% lower than just 18 months ago. Whether independently or linked to RHI technology, the FiT really does support micro-generation in 2013 and is forecast to continue to do so for the coming few years.
