Under the responsibility of WG Performance Indicators, CEDR is launching a call for tenders for support to develop the 2017 TEN-T (road) performance indicators report.
The 2015 TEN-T (Roads) Performance Report was the fourth biennial report that CEDR has published on the performance of the TEN-T (Roads) network within CEDR member countries. The first performance report was published in 2009 and since then, despite being voluntary, 24 of CEDR’s member countries have chosen to participate in at least one of the four reports. Together, these countries cover approximately 90,000 km of the total 103,000 km TEN-T (Roads) network. This network represents the most important roads in Europe and more than two billion vehicle kilometres are driven on this network every day.
CEDR’s intention in producing these reports is to establish a stable set of data with which to monitor trends and identify changes in the performance of the TEN-T (Roads) network. As such, the report is a particularly useful source of information for individual NRAs, regulatory bodies and others for benchmarking purposes and for setting national performance targets. Hyperion Infrastructure Consultancy (http://www.hyperion-uk.com) was the consultant for the reports from 2013-2016.
It is also expected that the performance report and underpinning data will continue to evolve to provide the backbone for the collection, referencing, and graphical representation of any other data required by CEDR (e.g. customer consultation, environmental data, Open Data) in the future. This framework is considered to be the state of the art and represents the best source of performance data on the TEN-T (Roads) network.
The objective of the contract is to provide technical assistance to CEDR. The Contractor will work under the responsibility of CEDR’s Working Group Performance to provide guidance for the Executive Board.
The call for tender is published on the TED (the supplement of the Official Journal of the EU). The deadline for submission of tenders is 17 May 2017. The evaluation of proposals will be made on the basis of the the criteria – technical proposal, capacity/experience and financial proposal – evaluated by the CEDR working group.
It is foreseen the initial work includes;
