Opportunity:

We are looking to identify a technology supplier to further enhance the current functionality of CleanCar delivering new and innovative processes to a rapidly expanding consumer market.  Applicants must submit a PQQ and shortlisted applicants will be invited to sign a non-disclosure agreement to progress to the next stage.

About CleanCar

CleanCar is a solution that is helping companies and car users in the UK to make the switch from Internal Combustion Engine Vehicles (ICE) to Electric and Plug in Hybrid Vehicles (EV).  Its success comes from being able to prove a driver’s suitability to an EV while also demonstrating the Cost Benefit of making the switch.  The system has the unique ability to cut through indifference and misinformation about EV by proving the facts and the benefits.

We are looking to improve upon what we already have and make the system ready for the mass consumer markets.

Main Project Tasks

Dashboard Design: Build a series of dashboards and pages for users, managers and administrators that allow them to:

  • See a profile of driving behaviour
  • Show vehicle suitability
  • Ability to access all client and user data
  • Add new clients
  • Bulk upload new users
  • Bulk upload new vehicles
  • Archive users
  • Add a system message
  • Send user wide email
  • Deactivate option to prevent users from having access
  • Activate the option to re-enable deactivated users
  • API link into payment system – chargeable/stripe
  • Ability to access all data related to the user’s vehicle
  • Erase data
  • User and Mas user heatmaps of journeys
  • Show relevant POI on maps
  • Set of high-level summary reports based on user dashboard display
  • Ability to drill down into the data used in basic reports

Mobile GPS recording application:

  • iOS & Android applications
  • Secure and GDPR Compliant log in
  • Data Encryption
  • Dual functioning app used to capture GPS driving data and access to user dashboard
    Regarding road safety, while recording data it is imperative the app dashboard functionality is disabled.
  • App must self-start recording when the journeys start
  • App must stop recording when journey stops
  • App must have battery saving logic

Data capture Storage and Processing

  • The processing shall be multi level such that initial processing shall contain no affiliation other than the device; the second tier shall use logic to create journeys. Processing of assimilated data should be at a fourth layer to provide such statistics as required. Only at the fourth separate processing layer shall any data be associated with any entity other than the actual device.

Procurement Process

A two-stage procurement process is being undertaken. Potential suppliers are requested to complete the pre-qualification questionnaire in order to demonstrate they are capable of delivering the project and can demonstrate previous relevant experience. Shortlisting will be undertaken on the basis of the responses to the pre-qualification questionnaire. Shortlisted suppliers will then be invited to submit a quote after the full specification of works is shared.

Responses to questions will be evaluated and scored according to the following scoring system:

 

0

Not acceptable/no information

3

Acceptable but there are significant reservations

7

Good, with moderate reservations

9

High standard with minor reservations

10

Very high standard, no reservations

 

 

There is no minimum level to be achieved however it is intended that no fewer than three and no more than six potential suppliers will be shortlisted following the submission and sifting of the pre-qualification questionnaires. Suppliers’ answers will be ranked according to the scoring system above.

 

Following the completion of the shortlisting, shortlisted suppliers will be invited to sign a non-disclosure agreement. It is expected that this will be shared with shortlisted suppliers on or around 27th September. Once this is signed and returned, the full service specification will be shared and the shortlisted company will be requested to return a full quote for the works within one week. The score from this, stage one of the procurement process, will then be taken into account along with the quoted price for the works. The cheapest quote may not therefore be the one which is chosen.

 

Deadline for responses: 9am Monday 25th September
