C40 Cities Climate Leadership Group, Inc. (C40) is a non-profit organisation which supports international cities to collaborate effectively, share knowledge and drive sustainable action on climate change. C40 expects to receive funding support from both the UK government's Department for Business, Energy and Industrial Strategy (BEIS) and the Danish government's Ministry of Foreign Affairs, which will be used to fund the delivery of climate action plans in 15-20 cities located across South America and South East Asia (including but not limited to: Indonesia, Vietnam, Malaysia, Thailand and Philippines).

Extended TitleClimate Change Action Planning – Invitation to Participate in Early Market Engagement
Extended Description

Through one or more procurement processes, C40 intends to procure high-quality consultancy services to deliver some or all of the following work streams in each city:

1. Climate action planning strategic review to determine the extent to which a city’s current and/or planned climate targets, policies, plans and programmes are consistent with the goals of the Paris Agreement;

2. Climate action planning workshops to include in-city workshops and regional academies to build capacity, facilitate discussions and enable peer-to-peer interaction and learning;

3. GHG emissions analysis to include GHG emissions inventory development and GHG emissions scenario modelling;

4. Climate risk assessment to include identification and assessment of current and future climate hazards, and interdependencies analysis;

5. Climate action and plan development to support development of an evidence-based, inclusive and deliverable climate action plan for achieving mitigation and adaptation consistent with the goals of the Paris Agreement;

6. Benefits and inclusivity assessment to ensure climate action plan addresses all segments of the population in cities; and achieve wider and equitably distributed benefits of climate action; and

7. Review of climate action plan against C40’s Climate Action Planning Framework;

C40 will be looking for consultants with a regional presence and experience to ensure local knowledge, and specialist consultancies or organisations to support with the more technical work streams.

C40 anticipates a need for the climate action plans to be finalised by 2020 and hopes to finalise the contracts during the second half of 2018.

The proposed procurement and delivery strategy is to structure the requirement, and the future competition into multiple lots, which will broadly be arranged according to region, language and origin of funding. Due to capacity concerns in meeting the tight deadlines, C40 envisages that some restrictions may be placed on the number of lots that one bidder can win.

C40 wishes to undertake early market engagement to provide further information on its likely requirements and seek feedback from the market on its proposed procurement and delivery strategy. It will therefore host 2 Supplier Market Engagement Sessions on 16.4.2018 between 9:00 and 11:00 BST, and between 15:00 and 17:00 BST at Bird and Bird LLP, 12 New Fetter Lane, London, EC4A 1JP. The sessions are intended to be identical and it is therefore not necessary for interested parties to attend both. Those outside the UK are very welcome and actively encouraged to attend via conference call. Dial-in details will be circulated shortly before the engagement day to all those who register their interest in accordance with the procedure set out below. The early market engagement will provide suppliers with an insight into C40's proposed procurement strategy, the timescales associated with the procurement and the contract as well as to invite feedback from the market on C40's current plans. C40 will use the feedback to further validate its procurement and delivery strategy.

C40 is not subject to the public procurement rules in the UK, Denmark or elsewhere and is voluntarily advertising this opportunity in the Official Journal. However, in accordance with the terms of its grant agreements, C40 intends to run an open, fair and transparent process in order to appoint consultants with a local presence in the relevant cities to deliver the work streams (in partnership with specialist consultancies or organisations to support with the more technical work streams where necessary).
