Transport for London (TfL) is starting preliminary market consultations on the next generation of contracts known as the Surface Technology Contracts (STCs), over spring and summer 2020.
TfL would like to engage with independent experts, other authorities and/or market participants to seek views on various aspects of the proposed services. They are also looking to understand the direction of technology in all the asset category areas detailed in the attached document, particularly in the Connected Autonomous Vehicle Infrastructure (CAVI) space, and how the marketplace intends to manage existing technology obsolescence and pathways.
Back in May TfL launched the start of their market engagement phase with a webinar and issued ‘Market Sounding Questionnaire No.1’ to all parties that expressed an interest in participating in the preliminary market engagement exercise. Many thanks to all who completed it, and as outlined on the webinar TfL is now issuing ‘Market Engagement Questionnaire No.2’, which can be found at the bottom of this insight.
If your organisation is interested in participating, please return Market Engagement Questionnaire 2 by 12:00 noon on Tuesday 30 June 2020 via email to STCRCommercial@tfl.gov.uk. When returning the questionnaire please do so in Microsoft Word or Microsoft Excel format.
