EV charging

The Procurement Partnership (TPPL) and Commercial Services Kent (CSKL) have launched a new vehicle rental framework.

The new framework provides UK public bodies with a compliant route to 41 vehicle rental companies for the next four years, TPPL said. 

The framework builds on the success of the previous iteration which was scoped for the rental of passenger cars, LCVs, MCVs, welfare accessible buses and coaches, sweepers and HGVs up to 44 tonnes.

The latest solution comes with the addition of two new lots (four and five), aimed at providing public bodies with flexible long-term rental solutions and car club and pool car schemes.

The additions aim to enable the adoption of electric vehicles (EVs) for organisations.

The new Framework comprises five lots:

  • Lot 1: Hire of passenger cars and light commercial vehicles <365 days (22 suppliers)
  • Lot 2: Hire of converted accessible and non-accessible minibuses and coaches 5-72 seats (6 suppliers)
  • Lot 3: Hire of medium commercial vehicles up to 12.5t, sweepers up to 18.5t and HGVs up to 44t (22 suppliers)
  • Lot 4: Car and light commercial vehicle long-term and flexible rental >365 days (10 suppliers)
  • Lot 5: Car clubs and pool car schemes, including travel management systems and packages (4 suppliers)

James Brennan, managing director at TPPL, said:  “We are proud to support public sector organisations in achieving economic and environmental benefits, through the provision of two new lots scoped to enhance the flexibility and operational management of vehicle rental solutions via step-change technology.”

TPPL said lot five of the solution provides public bodies with environmental benefits by offering car clubs and pool car schemes that include travel management and smart mobility solutions.

The framework can be accessed by way of direct award or further competition based on requirements and preferences.

The framework will run until June 2025.
