The Transport Monitoring Network is a joint project between the Greater Cambridge Partnership, Cambridgeshire and Peterborough Combined Authority, Cambridgeshire County Council and Peterborough City Council.
Cambridgeshire require a sensor network that will enable us to monitor traffic types and volumes at defined points around the region. A framework/call off agreement is required to ensure that we can install a core network of sensors in the first instance, with the option for our local authority partners to be able to procure additional sensors at a set price as required. Maintenance/Support of the network should be included in the costs for a minimum four-year period with a possibility to extend by a further 2 years.
This length of contract is required to cover an extended maintenance contract for similar sensors; the type of sensors required have a typical lifespan of around 6 years and therefore the contract need to have the option to run for this time. we too would like to buy them with an annual maintenance fee for a 6 year period if suitable (dependent on the successful suppliers equipment).

This requirement is not split into Lots, as the Authority requires one provider for ease of management and volume efficiencies.

This framework is open for use by the following bodies:

• Cambridgeshire County Council
• Combined Peterborough and Cambridgeshire Authority (CPCA)
• Greater Cambridge Partnership
• Peterborough City Council
• Cambridge City Council
• South Cambridgeshire District Council
• East Cambridgeshire District Council
• Huntingdonshire District Council
• Fenland District Council

The estimated value of this procurement is between £200,000 and £800,00, depending on the availability of funding and the take-up by the various organisations listed above.

There will be no guarantee of work or volume of work to be given under this framework.
