To support the development of a climate action plan that is aligned with the requirements of C40’s climate action planning framework, C40 procured a panel of 4 consultants to work with C40 and city consultants in the above cities to deliver the climate action planning programme which will encompass the following work packages:

C40 reserves the right to award call-off contracts directly to the framework consultants via direct awards or by undertaking a mini-competition as presented in the ITT and specification documents.
Further details on the scope of each work package can be found in the specification document which is available via the Box Link at Particularly for work packages 2, 3, and 5, C40 procured technical consultants with deep technical expertise on the topic of climate change planning within the context of mitigation, adaptation and inclusivity with some geographic and context-specific experience. Consultancies are required to undertake specific technical modules of support for cities ranging from climate risk assessment and GHG scenario modelling to stakeholder engagement and inclusivity analysis. In addition, consultancies have the opportunity to also bid for the production and development of a set of strategic tools and resources on inclusive climate action and climate action impact assessment, as listed in Lot 4 of this Contract Notice. Consultancies will need to ensure effective coordination and knowledge sharing with the city consultants (procured via a separate procurement process) amongst C40, the C40 city adviser, and the city. Overall, the consultancies will work closely with the City Consultants who will work on work packages 1-5 in terms of being the coordinating partner for a city. The city consultants will demonstrate broad expertise across the climate action planning agenda combined with a strong understanding of the local political, institutional, socio-economic and cultural context.

II.2.4) Description of the procurement
To support the development of a climate action plan that is aligned with the requirements of C40’s climate action planning framework, C40 procured a panel of 2 strategic consultants. C40 reserves the right to award call-off contracts directly to the framework consultants via direct awards or by undertaking a mini-competition as presented in the ITT and specification documents.
The strategic tools and resources to be procured as part of the Lot 4 Framework will form a significant piece of C40’s flagship inclusive climate action initiative. The ultimate aim is to offer cities in the C40 network (including those in South America and Southeast Asia named above) a customised roadmap with hands-on support, collaborative training and assessments, best practice exchange, thought leadership guidance and innovative partnerships to plan, build consensus for and deliver bold climate action that is equitable and beneficial for all. To assist the provision of these resources, the indicative tasks and services have been divided into 2 key components.
— Component 1: inclusivity Guidelines,
— Component 2: benefits Guidelines and tools.
Further details on the scope of each work package can be found in the specification which is available via the Box Link at
C40 estimates that the total potential value of Lot 4 will be approximately 600 000 USD (note that C40 has an initial budget of 320 000 USD. C40 is currently seeking to secure further funding, however C40 is not able to guarantee any minimum volume of work, or that its budget will increase).
Bangkok was removed for although the CAP programme had progressed at a good pace it would not be possible to conclude the necessary arrangements prior to contract award in Bangkok. Bangkok was removed ahead of the city consultant ITT procurement stage (which was noted through a separate procurement process and Contract Notice).
