Net Zero Accelerator Invitation to Tender (ITT) is now closed

With the ITT closed, submissions to take part in the feasibility study are being evaluated.

There has been an overwhelming level of interest shown in tendering for the first step in LocatED’s vision for the Net Zero Accelerator Programme (NZAP). The ITT period for the feasibility study closed on Friday 29 September and submissions are now being evaluated.

It is intended that LocatED will be in a position to confirm contract awards on 31 October 2023.

The market engagement session generated dozens of questions from delegates which have been compiled and answered by the NZAP team. Please see here for responses to questions raised and referenced links, including the slides used in the session.

Please note that all communications with from those who submitted bids is restricted to those using the Department for Education’s Tendering Portal during the procurement process and until after the contract awards have been made.
