Bid assessment framework

As part of water companies 2020-2025 business plan’s Ofwat requires all companies to have a ‘Bid Assessment Framework’ (BAF) as part of their submission.

The BAF covers areas linked to water supply:

  • Water resources
  • Leakage
  • Water efficiency measures
  • Metering.

We fully support Ofwat’s drivers behind the BAF.

They state:
We require water companies to produce bid assessment frameworks in order to support bids, encourage innovation and give confidence to potential third party providers in the water bidding market.
This is aligned with our Marketplace activity, and we will be routing all BAF activity through this site over the coming years.

You can read our BAF here.

When the timetable for the water resources management planning cycle is known, we will publish our timelines and activities here, alongside other areas covered by the four points above and the requirements of the BAF.

If you would like to be kept informed of any opportunities made available under the BAF, please email marketplace@wessexwater.co.uk, letting us know it is BAF areas of work you are interested in.
