Objective of this work: *The objective of this work is to provide direct support to 15 businesses in the development and implementation of CEBMs. It is essential that the support is innovative; flexible enough to meet the demands of each individual business; and that the winning contractor is able to effectively engage across a number of business sectors. At this stage, we anticipate working primarily with SMEs. *From this pipeline of 15 businesses, we wish to support at least 3 to reach pilot stage (the nature of the pilot can be variable, for example, from a research and development trial to a full launch of a new service). *ZWS is currently undertaking activity to recruit businesses into this pipeline. We do not expect to have a full pipeline of 15 businesses by the time this contract begins and the contractor will be expected to work with ZWS to fill the remaining spaces over the first 2-3 months of the contract. In addition, we expect bidders to identify a number of specific potential pipeline opportunities (within Scotland) from their own business engagement activity as part of their proposal. *Another key output of this project is to generate exemplars, learning and commercial evidence which will persuade and enable other companies to investigate CEBMs for themselves. The contractor will be required to liaise with the Zero Waste Scotland communications team on development of these exemplars. ZWS is currently in the early stages of developing an online ‘acceleration centre’ which will include showcasing examples of successful CEBMs, demonstrating the development and implementation process, common challenges, and, generally, building the case for businesses to pursue CE opportunities independently. *This project requires a strong change management approach. Bidders should outline in their tenders examples of developing and implementing a change management process in a client organisation – where a positive impact has been achieved to an existing business model that has required buy-in from multiple stakeholders.

The Scottish Cities Alliance (the Alliance) is the collaboration of Scotland’s seven cities (Aberdeen, Dundee, Edinburgh, Glasgow, Inverness, Perth and Stirling) and the Scottish Government. The Alliance aim is to attract investment, stimulate economic activity and most importantly create new jobs and business opportunities. The Alliance Leadership Group brings together the Scottish Government’s cabinet secretary for Infrastructure, Investment and Cities and the Leaders and Chief Executives of the seven cities. The approved work programme has been taken forward by the Delivery Group, comprising senior economic development officers from each of the seven cities and the Scottish Government, working in partnership with national agencies and engaging with academia and the private sector. The Alliance work programme is supported by the City Investment Fund which was provided by the Scottish Government and the purpose of the fund is to leverage other private finance or European funding, support large-scale collaborative projects and develop programmes which allow for wider city region investment. The Alliance’s Operational Plan focuses the Alliance’s programme of work around 3 key workstreams: Infrastructure, Low Carbon and Smart Cities (www.scottishcities.org/workstreams). The three workstreams complement each other and have the collective objective of delivering economic growth with infrastructure as the central narrative. The Alliance commissioned Ryden (in association with PwC) to undertake proactive research work with City senior officers and stakeholders with the core objective of identifying future investable property market propositions which the cities could progress which might not otherwise happen in existing market/resource/governance provisions. The key aim of the collective endeavour was to corral expertise and innovation and interrogate market intelligence to develop propositions to attract investment, create jobs and stimulate economic growth. The work was driven by a short life working group comprising senior property and housing professionals from the Cities together with Scottish Enterprise and Scottish Futures Trust representatives and input from Scottish Government as appropriate. The output of this work (see accompanying documentation for full report) identified a final list of four potential market opportunities which through collaboration might be moved closer to delivery by various means and removal of market inertia/barriers across the seven cities. In October 2015 the Alliance Leadership Group (Cities Leaders, Chief Executives and Scottish Government) tasked the Delivery Group with progressing each of the four identified potential opportunities and this brief is to procure technical professional services to develop the detailed business plan model for the delivery of Hotel development. This work is being progressed collaboratively with the Cities of Inverness, Perth and Stirling and the lead procuring authority is Stirling Council.
