Section II: Object of the concession

II.1)Description of the concession
II.1.1)Title attributed to the contract by the contracting authority:
Delivery Partner for Energy Company Obligation (ECO) and Green Deal Energy Efficiency Scheme.
II.1.2)Type of contract and location of works
Realisation, by whatever means of work, corresponding to the requirements specified by the contracting authorities

NUTS code UKI23

Main site or location of works Within the London Borough of Brent.
II.1.3)Short description of the contract:
The London Borough of Brent (Brent) is looking to enter into a partnership to fund, manage and deliver energy efficiency installations under the Energy Company Obligation (ECO). The partnership is intended to ensure Brent residents benefit from ECO by maximising the level of funding brought into the borough across a number of tenure types:
- Registered Providers (RPs) owning housing stock in Brent
- Private rented housing
- Brent Council Housing (managed by Brent Housing Partnership (BHP)
- Owner-occupiers.
The delivery partner (DP) would be expected to build upon our existing successful projects across the borough and target its activities around the planned investment in the Council's social housing stock managed by BHP, as well as generally across the housing stock in the borough.
The agreement also envisages the DP delivering energy efficiency and carbon reduction activity funded from outside ECO (including but not restricted to the Green Deal) that would be expected to be of mutual benefit. However the concessionaire is guaranteed the award of a contract by BHP under the concession agreement for a package of works centred on cavity walls (700-800 properties) and high-rise or other blocks that could benefit from measures such as external cladding, on condition that it can demonstrate that its offer for this contract represents good value. BHP will be a party to the concession agreement.
The agreement is a concession agreement, whereby in partnership with Brent, the DP will gain the right to exploit the provision of services within the borough to the tenure categories noted above. The DP accepts that there is no guarantee of exclusivity under the concession arrangements, so that while the Council will only work with the successful DP, other organisations can choose to market themselves independently in the borough.
