Vehicle Charging Infrastructure

Vehicle Charging Infrastructure

Framework 636
Status: Extended

A new national framework offering public sector customers with low emission vehicles and a comprehensive range of charging solutions from the leading providers in the market. For example, standard/fast/rapid vehicle chargepoints for electric vehicles, installation, back office, maintenance and so on.  This framework will offer turnkey solutions for customers to help them access the latest technology.

This ESPO framework provides access to a vast range of vehicle charging infrastructure solutions including rapid/fast/standard electric vehicle chargers and compatible back office solutions from market leading suppliers. Awarded suppliers are able to supply, deliver, install and commission electric vehicle charge points to your specifications, with the latest technology being available. Purchase and lease options are both offered. Emerging technologies, including battery energy storage, vehicle to grid, car port chargers, bus chargers, mobile chargers, charging test equipment and parking bay sensors, are also available.

Whilst initially for use by local authorities served by ESPO – being a Central Purchasing Body as defined by the Public Contracts Regulations 2015, the framework may also be open for use by any “public body”, defined in the Local Authorities (Goods and Services) Act 1970 that also falls within one of the following classifications of user throughout all administrative regions of the UK:

  • Local Authorities, and certain
    • Central Government Agencies and Ministries
    • NHS and Emergency (Blue Light) Services
    • Schools, Academies, Colleges and Universities
    • Registered Charities
    • Registered Social Landlords
Full details of the classification of end user establishments and their geographical areas are available on

What are the benefits of using this framework?

  • Access to market leading suppliers and the latest products and services.
  • The framework is compliant with UK/EU procurement legislation - we’ve done the work, so there’s no need for you to run a full EU procurement process.
  • Direct award call-off option. The framework is enabled so as to allow for direct award.For customers who have already conducted a ‘desktop evaluation’, a direct award can simplify the process, reducing time and cost in comparison to further competition. For those with more complex requirements, the further competition is also offered.   
  • Customers can purchase or lease anything from a single charge point to a full vehicle charging solution with back office for a number of sites.
  • Turnkey/end-to-end solutions are available, or Customers can pick and choose which elements they require from the supply chain (e.g. self-install).
  • Suppliers listed on the framework were assessed during the procurement process for their track record, experience, and technical and professional ability.
  • Access to a Buyer’s Guide to help Customers determine their requirements (please see separately attached document)
  • Access to further competition template documents free of charge
  • Pre-agreed terms & conditions. No need to worry about what terms and conditions to use as they’ve been pre-agreed under the framework and will underpin all orders.
