This tender is for the provision of Merchant Services for processing, authorisation and settlement of the University's debit and credit transactions via all payment channels including: customer present (Chip and PIN/contactless payments), customer not present (Mail Order / Telephone Order) and online (e-commerce).

The University is seeking to develop efficient and cost-effective merchant service arrangements which will be capable of meeting future market and technological changes, and which will meet, and often exceed, user expectations. It is looking for a relationship with an organisation which it can be confident will fulfil all the University's current and future requirements.

It is important that any potential acquiring partner can add value through an effective dedicated corporate support team backed up by a proactive education sector specialist Relationship Manager.

The current annual payment card turnover is approximately 18 200 000 GBP across over 173 000 transactions.

The University is currently not benefiting from DCC, but wishes to address that through this tender process. Accordingly, the University will be required to appoint a DCC capable PSP. To enable it to fully evaluate potential across all tenderers, your tender response must include information and costs of your preferred PSP that is capable of supporting DCC in conjunction with WPM Education.

The University currently has circa 25 terminals. These are provided by First Data on various rolling contracts. The appointed acquirer will be expected to replace these on a rolling basis with the most suitable option, be it fixed, Bluetooth or mobile. The University expects these to be PCI DSS compliant (version 3.2) terminal solutions.

It should be noted that the University is not PCI-DSS compliant. It has employed a specialist in this area to achieve this and works with Sysnet as its QSA. Compliance is being dealt with on a channel by channel basis. Your response should advise what additional support you could provide the University in achieving and then maintaining compliance.

The Appointee must show a commitment to the continuing development of efficient and cost-effective merchant services, and demonstrate a knowledgeable and pro-active approach to the needs of the University and the wider Higher Education sector.

The University requires charging arrangements that are economic, transparent and provide incentives to both parties to operate the services efficiently. Tenderers are required to quote transaction charges on an Interchange Plus or Plus Plus basis.

The University will wish to take advantage of technological and other developments during the period of the appointment where these offer improved service and value for money. University of Northampton will expect the advice and support of the appointee to assist in taking advantage of such new developments, both imminent and longer term. It is particularly keen to develop digital Wallet capability at the new Waterside campus development.

Tenderers must submit a detailed implementation plan and timetable showing milestones, responsibilities, critical path analysis, disaster recovery procedures etc. from award to implementation. Tenderers must explain their processes for ensuring the timetable is achievable and that adequate resources are identified from both service provider and client perspectives.

The new campus will comprise higher education buildings, student halls of residence, energy centre (the Energy Centre ) and fallow space available for leisure, retail, commercial development and University future expansion. The overall campus development is being delivered through a number of packages of work, of which the Energy Centre is one specific package/contract. The University has appointed an infrastructure contractor whose scope includes the design, build and installation of the below ground services and roads inclusive of the district heating network to a point on the boundary of the Energy Centre site area. The University has appointed a separate academic and public realm contractor to deliver the academic buildings and to take overall main/principal contractor responsibility for the shared construction areas. A separate procurement exercise is currently under way for the design and construction of 1 200 student residences. The Energy Centre will be located at the Waterside Development Site, Northampton. The land where the Energy Centre is to be built is owned by the University and can be found at the far southern end of North/South Road. The site boundary is bordered by a car park access road to the north, a campus road to the east, an electrical substation and ownership boundary to the south, and a surface car park to the west. The scope of works for the Energy Centre contract will include: — Design and construction of an energy centre building on a brownfield site with associated service yard; — Design, procure, install and set to work heat generation and associated plant as required to supply and maintain the low temperature hot water (LTHW) district heating network; — Connection to all required incoming services from locations in near proximity to the Energy Centre site boundary including data connections back to the plant rooms in each of the academic and student residential buildings; — Design and installation of all signage to the building; — The Energy Centre contractor will be responsible for raising the site levels from the remediation level to the finished level, and installation of associated hard and soft landing; — Maintenance, operation and campus commissioning support from practical completion (‘PC’) in June 2017 until September 2018, when the University welcomes its first student intake; — Defects liability period extending from PC in June 2017 to 31.8.2019; — Management of the discharge of planning conditions; — Liaison with building control throughout the project duration to obtain building regulations approval; — Training of University staff both at PC in June 2017 and the student intake in September 2018; and — Completion and handover of completed Health and Safety file in accordance with the University's requirements. The Energy Centre contractor will be required to complete the design from the end of RIBA Stage 3 and deliver a fully operational Energy Centre by June 2017, for use by other contractors to test and commission their buildings. Practical completion of the works will be granted at this point. The Energy Centre contractor will appoint a design team to complete the technical design from the end of RIBA stage 3. Should the Energy Centre contractor wish to approach the client design team directly to carry out this design work, they may do so. The Energy Centre contractor will then remain on site under the terms of the NEC3 form of design and build contract (in the form to be issued with the invitation to Tender) in order to undertake the operation and maintenance of the Energy Centre between June 2017 and September 2018, at which point the University will take responsibility. They will also work with the other main contractors in the commissioning of the buildings and connection to the Energy Centre. An extended defects liability period will start from award of PC in June 2017 and conclude on 31.8.2019 (The system will be monitored in use during this time to allow seasonal commissioning). This extended period is required to ensure the facility is under a defects liability period for a full academic cycle when the buildings will be in use.
