Utility Management Software, Metering and Ancillary Services

Meters, software and services for managing utility supplies (electricity, gas, water, steam, fuels, heating and chilling) with the aim of reducing costs.

Description

This agreement provides for hiring or purchasing utility meters, services to support meters, software to analyse consumption data and associated services for managing energy strategy and helping to save utility costs.

This complements CCS’s existing energy supply contracts covering half-hourly electricity, non-half hourly electricity and gas. It also provides you with the data for services available through our demand side response and REFIT agreements.

The agreement can be used by the whole of the UK public sector, including central government, wider public sector, health, and third sector. It is for a duration of three years with an option to extend for a further year.

Benefits

  • Using energy management software can deliver approximately a 5% reduction in energy consumption (Carbon Trust estimate)
  • Use consumption data to identify additional savings opportunities and change behaviour in your organisation
  • Access to management information to track and capture energy costs based on a common set of service codes allowing in-depth analysis.

How to buy

Complete a customer user agreement (CUA) form to be allocated a unique reference number (see the documents tab).

This will allow CCS to:

  • Track delivery specific projects between the contracting authority and the supplier
  • Collate project specific management information to identify spend and savings to a granular project level
  • Have better transparency of data
  • Support system and data reviews during supplier audits.

You will need the unique reference number to buy through this agreement. Read the guidance to find out whether you can buy through direct award or further competition. CCS has developed a call off order form which can be used to run further competitions via this framework. This is specifically tailored to the requirements of this framework to ensure you run a compliant and efficient further competition process. However, you can use your own documents if you want.
