II.2.4)Description of the procurement:

Commercial procurement service seeks to establish a single supplier national Framework Agreement to enable public sector bodies to purchase electricity from the wholesale market.

The total quantity of electricity required under this framework will be dependent upon the number of public sector organisations that utilise the framework and the number of sites that each organisation has.

It is anticipated that a number of organisations in the current portfolio of clients will transfer to the new Framework Agreement but this is not guaranteed. The annual volume of electricity to be purchased via this framework is estimated to be approximately 250 GWh but this figure is provided for indicative purposes only and is subject to change as there are no guarantees that any or all of the current portfolio of clients will transfer to the new Framework Agreement.

The Framework Agreement will be required to deliver electricity to its customers from 1.4.2020. Upon award of the Framework Agreement, the Framework Agreement will be utilised with immediate effect to purchase electricity in advance for the portfolio.
