This competition is funded by the Geospatial Commission, part of the Cabinet Office. The aim is to identify innovative geospatial solutions to current transport challenges and enable the future of mobility.
This is phase 1 of a potential 2-phase competition. A decision to proceed with phase 2 will depend on the outcomes from phase 1. Only successful applicants from phase 1 will be able to apply to take part in phase 2. This will involve a separate application into a subsequent phase 2 competition.
This competition involves R&D contracts being awarded to demonstrate technical feasibility of the proposed solution. A total of up to £2 million, inclusive of VAT, is allocated to this phase.
The phase 1 contracts will be up to £75,000, inclusive of VAT. This is for each project for up to 12 weeks. The assessors will consider fair value in making their evaluation.
Projects are expected to start by 4 January, end by 31 March 2021 and can last up to 12 weeks.
